AP A VA USA ROCKET LAUNCH

ROCKET LAUNCH

The Orbital Science Corp Minotaur I rocket sits on its launch pad as visitors and press look on at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., Saturday, Dec. 9, 2006. The rocket, carrying satellites for the Air Force and NASA , is set to blast off Monday, Dec. 11, in the first launch from the mid-Atlantic region's commercial spaceport. The Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority, a state agency, built the launch pad in 1998 on land leased from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, which has been launching research rockets since 1945.
