Delta IV Heavy rocket launch from Vandenberg for Tuesday



The much-anticipated Delta IV Heavy missile on Vandenberg Air Force Base will have another chance to take off on Tuesday night. The United Launch Alliance missile Blastoff is scheduled for 17:57. from Space Launch Complex-6 at South Base.

The team tried twice last week, but technical disruptions thwarted both attempts on Friday and Saturday nights, resulting in a delay of more than a week.

The rocket will carry a national team reconnaissance office spacecraft into orbit for a mission named NROL-71. Due to the top secret payload, the startup window was not released, but takes less than an hour. Equipped with three standard booster cores strapped side by side, the Delta IV Heavy can carry some of the county's largest national safety payloads.

The rocket used the launch pad, which was originally built for the West Coast Space Shuttle program, which occurred before any withdrawal was canceled. Spectators may receive an additional gift from this mission, as the Delta IV Heavys sunset demolition could cause a twilight phenomenon if the conditions are appropriate.
