1st LAUNCH ATTEMPT SEP 5, 2010 – MAIN LOX VALVE FAILURE

 

 

 
 

Due to the first time maritime operation at sea, the heating system of the LOX-valve was without power for longer than expected. Due to this, the LOX-valve might have been jammed by exposure to LOX-cooling. However, the rocket has not yet been examined, so additional reasons may be revealed later, if we find anothe reason to the LOX-valve failure..

LAUNCH ABORTED AND POSTPONED TO JUNE 2011
