SPACE reported that on Saturday night at Cape Canaveral, United Launch Alliance (ULA) launched a Delta IV rocket carrying the US Air Force’s ninth Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) satellite. Several US allies paid the cost of the $445 million US military communications satellite in exchange for part-time use of its network. The satellite is the ninth of ten planned for the US Air Force’s WGS constellation, which supports both X-band and Ka-band communications. (Image Credit: NASA)
