Revisiting Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport

As we have mentioned and admired in previous posts, NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia has a beautiful water tower.

We wish them luck in tonight’s launch of Northrop Grumman’s 13th contracted cargo resupply mission with NASA to the International Space Station which will deliver more than 7,500 pounds of science and research, crew supplies, and vehicle hardware to the orbital laboratory and its crew. https://blogs.nasa.gov/spacestation/2020/02/09/nasa-tv-broadcasts-launch-of-u-s-cygnus-cargo-craft/

In previous WTWS articles we have reported damage to the water tower because of launch failures. We are glad to see the tower looking good and ready to go.

Here is a beautiful photo of the pre-launch with a late day full moon via the NASA website:
