United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV medium-class rocket lifted off on Thursday morning from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. It was a fitting swan song for the rocket. Company president Tory Bruno tweeted that the lift-off was “hot, straight and normal.” The Delta IV Medium ended its nearly two-decade run with 29 launches. Denver-based United Launch Alliance said it will be replaced by the still-in-development Vulcan rocket. The newly launched GPS satellite is the second in a series of next-generation navigation spacecraft. It was nicknamed Magellan after the 16th-century Portuguese explorer. Lockheed Martin, also based in Colorado, built the satellite. PA
