Delta IV Launches GOES-O Satellite for NOAA

A new weather satellite successfully arrived into earth orbit this evening following a beautiful ride aboard a Delta IV rocket from America's space coast.

The United Launch Alliance Delta IV, with its twin boosters, lifted off at 6:51 pm EDT, 37 minutes late due to severe thunderstorms and lightning near it's launch pad here at Cape Canaveral, AFS.
