Watch live coverage of the launch of three classified US government satellites aboard a Northrop Grumman Minotaur 1 rocket from Virginia at 7am EDT (1100 GMT) Tuesday: https://spaceflightnow.com/2021/06/15/minotaur-1-nrol-129-mission-status-center/
A Minotaur 1 rocket powered by a surplus Cold War-era missile stage more than 54 years old is poised to blast off from the Eastern Shore of Virginia Tuesday morning, heading to orbit with three top secret spacecraft for the U.S. government's spy satellite agency.
Этот Минотавр и так нихрена не выводит, а тут сразу три спутника. Что за космический мусор они там запускают?

T-minus 2 hours, 30 minutes and holding. The Minotaur 1 countdown has entered an unplanned hold. So far, there's no explanation of the reason for this hold.
06/15/2021 11:50 Stephen Clark
The Minotaur countdown for the NROL-111 mission is in a hold as a thunderstorm moves over Wallops Island. Countdown preps, including rollback of the launch pad's mobile gantry, will resume once the bad weather has moved away.
06/15/2021 12:50 Stephen Clark
The countdown remains in a hold as another thunderstorm is approaching the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia. The launch team plans to set a new target launch time once work on the Minotaur 1 rocket can resume after the storm passes.
06/15/2021 13:56 Stephen Clark
The thunderstorms that caused the delay in this morning's Minotaur launch have pushed offshore over the Atlantic Ocean.
Teams are coordinating a new target launch time of 9:35 a.m. EDT (1335 GMT) for the NROL-111 mission.
06/15/2021 14:00 Stephen Clark
With the countdown clock ticking again, ground crews are returning to pad 0B on Wallops Island to begin rolling the mobile gantry away from the Minotaur 1 rocket.
06/15/2021 14:30 Stephen Clark
The crew at the pad 0B reports the 127-foot-tall mobile gantry has been retracted, revealing the 69-foot-tall Minotaur 1 rocket for liftoff.

The launch team has completed final vehicle arming, and the pad crew is preparing to evacuate the launch pad for launch.
06/15/2021 15:05 Stephen Clark
T-minus 90 minutes. This is a relatively quiet phase of the countdown until the final prelaunch checklist begins at T-minus 60 minutes.
06/15/2021 15:35 Stephen Clark
T-minus 60 minutes. Members of the Minotaur team are opening up their final prelaunch checklists at this time. This begins the final phase of today's countdown.
06/15/2021 15:37 Stephen Clark
T-minus 58 minutes and counting. Rocket systems are being activated for final testing.
06/15/2021 15:38 Stephen Clark
The Minotaur 1's transmitters are now being switched on as the launch team verifies the vehicle is ready for launch.
06/15/2021 15:45 Stephen Clark
The launch team continues working through the final launch checklist. No issues are being worked by the ground, launch vehicle and spacecraft teams.
06/15/2021 15:49 Stephen Clark
The Minotaur's inertial navigation system is being configured in preparation for launch.
06/15/2021 15:52 Stephen Clark
Weather remains iffy at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia. The Minotaur team is concerned a cloud deck might be over the pad at launch time, potentially violating weather criteria.
06/15/2021 16:10 Stephen Clark
T-minus 25 minutes and counting. The rocket's flight termination system is now being tested for the final time before launch.
06/15/2021 16:12 Stephen Clark
The Minotaur's flight termination system has been tested. The destruct device would be used to destroy the rocket if it veered off course during flight.
06/15/2021 16:15 Stephen Clark
T-minus 20 minutes and counting. Today's flight is the 12th Minotaur 1 mission, and the 28th Minotaur family launch since 2000. It marks the eighth Minotaur launch from Wallops Island, Virginia.
06/15/2021 16:15 Stephen Clark
The exact launch time of 9:35:00 a.m. EDT (1335:00 GMT) is being programmed into the Minotaur 1 flight computer.
06/15/2021 16:21 Stephen Clark
The Wallops Flight Facility's range safety officer confirms the launch hazard area is now clear for launch.
06/15/2021 16:24 Stephen Clark
Upper level winds are acceptable for launch this morning.
06/15/2021 16:25 Stephen Clark
T-minus 9 minutes, 30 seconds. The launch vehicle's flight termination system has been switched to internal power and the external power source has been turned off.

A Northrop Grumman Minotaur I Space Launch Vehicle launched the NROL-111 mission from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport's (MARS) Pad 0B at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, on 15 June 2021, at 13:35 UTC (09:35 EDT). The NROL-111 mission delivered three national security payloads to low Earth orbits for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). The Minotaur I SLV consists of two solid-fueled motors from decommissioned Minuteman ICBMs as the lower stages and two solid-fueled commercial solid rocket motors as upper stages.
