A United Launch Alliance Delta IV rocket successfully launched a new GPS satellite Thursday evening, blasting off at 8:59 p.m. from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, and reaching 10 times the speed of sound within a few minutes. The initial launch date had been delayed to investigate an upper stage engine problem that had surfaced during a previous launch that was still successful. Two more GPS satellites are targeted for launch from the Cape in May and July on ULA's Delta IV and Atlas V rockets, respectively. The launch was the third from the Cape this year, and ULA's second. It was the 25th by a Delta IV rocket since it began flying in 2002. (Image Credit: ULA)
