Taylor-made satellite launch delayed 2 weeks

– The launch of a small satellite designed and built by Taylor University engineering students has been delayed at least two weeks.

The satellite had been set for a Sunday launch from Florida’s Cape Canaveral on a rocket owned by California-based SpaceX. But the company pushed the launch back at least two weeks Thursday, saying it needs more time for launch preparations.

The rocket will carry into orbit a so-called nanosatellite that’s cube-shaped and weighs less than three pounds. It includes instrumentation that will test communications between other satellites and measure plasma in low Earth orbit.

Taylor’s CubeSat was chosen by NASA during a nationwide competition that attracted 33 designs and proposals. Taylor’s satellite was designed and built entirely by undergraduate students at the school’s Upland campus in north central Indiana.
