The launch window has finally opened for the United Launch Alliance’s  Delta 4 rocket scheduled to blastoff from Cape Canaveral Air Station on Florida’s Space Coast. Hailed as ULA’s 57th mission, the Delta 4 rocket, which took five years to build, will deploy a U.S. military communications satellite to support battlefield troops by beaming high-data-rate, large-volume communications such as voice, video conferencing, intelligence files and weather information to troops, plus supply the bandwidth for the operation of unmanned aerial drones. 

ULA’s Delta 4 rocket is scheduled to launch tonight from Cape Canaveral at 7:38 p.m. EST (0038 GMT).
