Posted: Sat, May 1, 2021, 8:46 AM ET (1246 GMT)
Delta 4 Heavy launch of NROL-82 (ULA) A Delta 4 Heavy rocket successfully launched a classified satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office Monday. The rocket lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 4:47 pm EDT (2047 GMT), and the NRO confirmed the launch was a success several hours later. Neither United Launch Alliance nor the NRO disclosed the payload for that NROL-82 mission, thought to be a large imaging satellite. ULA has three more Delta 4 Heavy launches remaining before it retires the vehicle and replaces it with the Vulcan Centaur.
