  • Published on Oct 31, 2016
  • Step onto the launch pad as ULA’s Delta IV Heavy blasts off with the NROL-37 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office. The Delta IV Heavy is nearly as tall as the U.S. Capitol and generates more than 2.1 million pounds of thrust off the launch pad.

      Liquid hydrogen as the fuel, instead of the much more common (and sooty) RP-1 kerosene jet fuel. Only exhaust byproduct of LH2 and O2 is WATER !! : ]

      If you only launch your biggest rocket once or twice a year, you're gonna fool a lot of dumb grass into growing where it doesn't belong. Not to worry: CCAFS has its own fire department.

      I hope it didn't trigger any grass fire like before :-D

    Love the IV but dangit, I am a lover of solids!!! Heck, I love all of it. But a fully loaded Delta with a full complement of GEMS is a personal fav of mine.

      Saturn V, Saturn IB, Titan II, Titan IIIE Centaur, Atlas-Agena, Atlas-Centaur are probably one of my favourites. Also a Saturn V MLV variant with UA1205 strap on booster would be on the list if it would have existed.
