Delta 4 Heavy launch of NROL-65 (ULA) A Delta 4 Heavy rocket launched on Wednesday a classified payload believed to be a satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). The rocket, the most powerful US vehicle in service today, lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 2:03 pm EDT (1803 GMT) Thursday on the NROL-65 mission. United Launch Alliance said the launch was successful, but neither it nor the NRO offered additional details about the mission.
