Astra has announced it will attempt another launch of its small-satellite booster from Pacific Spaceport Complex — Alaska on Kodiak island next month.

“We’re excited to announce that our 6-day launch window starts on August 2nd and is open from 12:30-4pm PT each day!” the company tweeted.

Astra has developed a 38-foot-tall (11.6 m) rocket designed to launch payloads weighing 50–150 kg (110–331 lb) to a 500 km (311 mile) sun-synchronous orbit.
