LIMESTONE, Maine (WABI) - Weather forced the delay of last week’s scheduled launch of a biofuel-powered rocket made by a Maine company.

That was happened once again.

Company officials saying Tuesday that weather conditions for Wednesday were not ideal and the launch would be pushed into next week.

BluShift had planned to launch the rocket Friday from the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone.

These rockets aren’t the kind that will launch astronauts into space.

They are fairly small and will have the capacity to launch payloads from customers into orbit.

The rocket is a prototype to show investors the company and its rockets.
