Vandenberg’s most powerful Atlas V ever launches

Yep, it launched last night. Of course it was raining at my house when it launched, so I couldn’t see it.

In the last 12 months, ULA—which was formed back in December 2006 as a merger between Boeing and Lockheed Martin—has delivered a record-breaking nine Atlas Vs, together with four Delta IVs and a single Delta II, and placed NASA, military and civilian payloads into low, medium and geostationary Earth orbits. In doing so, ULA has added to an impressive legacy, flying its 80th overall mission in its eight-year history, the 50th Atlas V, the 25th Delta IV and the first Delta II in almost three years.

A great way to wrap up the year for ULA.
