CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - A space station delivery from Virginia has been rescheduled once again for February 15.

The space station was delayed on February 9 at the last minute because of trouble with ground equipment.

The first rescheduled launch was set for at 3:34 p.m., Friday. However, due to high upper-level winds, liftoff was once again rescheduled for Saturday.

Northrop Grumman came within two to three minutes of launching a cargo ship to the International Space Station on Sunday.

The countdown was halted abruptly.

Rain and clouds were expected at Wallops Island for the next few days.

The capsule atop Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket holds 4 tons of space station supplies, including cheese and candy for the three station residents.
