Rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base delayed Thursday

A rocket launch that was supposed to deliver a national security satellite into space Thursday was delayed. 

The rocket was originally supposed to be launched at 1:55 Thursday after being postponed due to rain Wednesday. Late Thursday afternoon, the live feed for the rocket launch simply said it had been "scrubbed" for the day.

At this time, it's unclear when the launch will resume.
