WORLDVIEW-2 LAUNCHED VIA DELTA II OUT OF VAFB


DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-2 satellite has been launched atop a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket on Thursday morning. The launch, which took place from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, USA at 11:51 (local) – slightly delayed from the scheduled T-0 due to a battery issue on the vehicle’s second stage. The WorldView-2 spacecraft is an optical imaging satellite, which will be operated by Colorado-based DigitalGlobe. It was constructed by Ball Aerospace, and is based on the BCP-5000 satellite bus. It has a mass of 2,800 kilograms, and an anticipated operational lifespan of seven and a quarter years.
