THE stars appear to be aligned for Nasa’s Moon rocket to finally blast off tomorrow, with weather forecasts favourable and technical issues that postponed the launch earlier this week resolved.

Lift-off is scheduled for 2.17pm local time (1817 GMT) from Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, with the potential for up to a two-hour delay if necessary.
