Florida was successfully launched the carrier rocket Delta IV with the American military satellite Wideband Global SATCOM. The launch occurred at 20:26 local time (02:26 on March 16 in Kiev) from the spaceport at Cape Canaveral.

“We are very proud to deliver this critical asset to orbit in support of American and allied war fighters deployed around the world to protect our national security,” — said Vice-President of government and commercial programs Gary Wentz, reported on the website of United Launch Alliance.

Recall, the company SpaceX Elon musk launched on 11 January booster Falcon 9 with 10 satellites. The first stage of the rocket has successfully landed on a sea platform in the Pacific ocean. The launch of the Ukrainian-American rocket “alpha” is scheduled for December 16, 2019. By this time, the company needs to complete the testing steps, in particular, to put the first step on test design for testing.
