The United Launch Alliance (ULA)’s Delta IV Heavy successfully launched a US spy satellite into space from Space Launch Complex 6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. It’s transporting the classified NROL-82 satellite into orbit for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). For those unfamiliar with the Delta IV Heavy, it’s currently the most powerful rocket in ULA’s fleet, powered by 465,000 gallons of super-chilled liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen sent to three common core boosters that generate over 2-million pounds of thrust.

United Launch Alliance (ULA), a joint alliance between Lockheed Martin and Boeing, has four remaining Delta IV Heavy rockets left, all of which have already been assigned NRO missions. The launch today marks the 13th flight of a Delta IV since debuting in 2004, including one mission that transported NASA’s uncrewed Orion capsule on a test flight as well as another sending the Parker Solar Probe to study the Sun.
