Launch of NASA’s OCO-2 Mission on Delta II Rocket

A Delta II rocket launched today, June 2nd 2014 at 09:56 UTC from Vandenberg Air Force Base for the first time since 2011 carrying NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) – 2 spacecraft into orbit. OCO-2 is a NASA mission designed to provide global space-based observations of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), OCO-2 is a rebuild of the satellite after the original was lost in a launch failure onboard a Taurus rocket in 2009.

This was the 152nd launch of a Delta II and the first since 2011 due to a recent purchase of 4 of the 5 remaining Delta II rockets by NASA.
