Whalers Way Rocket Launch Postponed

Strong winds on Friday has led to the postponement of the first trial rocket launch at Whalers Way, as protestors clashed with security guards on the day.


Video of an early morning stand-off between protestors and security guards surfaced late Friday, with one person standing in front of a car with a banner before being asked to move.

Many local residents have raised concerns over the environmental impact the launch facility will have at Whalers Way.

Southern Launch says they will determine a new test launch date with the Australian Space Agency.
