Orbital Sciences decided to expand to Orange County “because Southern California is well known for having quality aerospace engineers,” Beneski says. The booster will launch from the Virginia Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island in late 2010 for NASA COTS. More from The Orange County Register.
