Atlas V Rocket Launch


On Wednesday, July 15, District Seven Secretary Paul Steinman and members of the district management staff were on hand at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station for the Atlas V rocket launch by United Launch Alliance.  The rocket was equipped with a GPS 2F-10 satellite to be placed into orbit, the 10th in a series of 12 next-generation satellites for the U.S. Air Force. The satellites are replacing older ones in orbit around Earth, providing improved time, location and velocity information for U.S. troops around the world as well as improving navigation data for GPS devices.

United Launch Alliance has successfully launched 55 Atlas V rockets to space for various missions
