    Dulles-based Orbital Sciences has a failure to launch

    A spacecraft that was set to launch today from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California has been postponed until tomorrow, according to a prepared statement from Orbital.

    Orbital Sciences is set to try the launch again tomorrow morning at 2:56 a.m.

    The vessel is OCO-2 designed to measure atmospheric carbon dioxide to "help scientists better understand how increasing CO2 concentrations are driving climate change around the globe."

    It was built and tested by Orbital under contract in Dulles as well as Gilbert, Ariz.

    Orbital is in the top five publicly traded companies in Louduon in revenue.
