What’s all that churning and bubbling? You call that a radar?

Has anyone checked this is really real and not some dreadful hoax? Like 9 hours of us watching a photo of a rocket with some photoshopped steam coming off it?

It's on wikipedia. They are launching a spy satellite. Apparently almost all delta-V missions have been military, presumably as it's an expensive option.

That said, it was used for an orion capsule test.

Very good. I was really hoping this would have launched on time. Can't hang on any more, night night. Bet it lifts off any minute now, straight after I log off 😄
