Event Name:  Launch of NASA ICON
Event Description:  Tonight marks the launch of #NASAICON, a @NASASun mission to study how space weather manifests in Earth's atmosphere. After almost a year of waiting, Northrop Grumman will once again attempt to air-launch its Pegasus XL rocket on Wednesday, which will send NASA's Ionospheric Connection Explorer science mission, or ICON spacecraft to study the region of near-Earth space, called the ionosphere. But this isn't a regular type of launch. Instead of seeing a vertical rocket take flight from one of the launch pads here at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station or Kennedy Space Center, the Pegasus rocket will instead be air-dropped by Grumman's Stargazer aircraft.
