This video is a tour of ULA's rocket factory led by Tory Bruno himself! It's a really great watch for anyone interested in rocket engineering.

Edit: There are also videos of Tory explaining the Delta IV Heavy on the launch pad, and talk about the relationship with other rocket companies and engines, also really good.

Aside AEHF-6 will be TDO 2 (or EZ-2).

(Image depict the earlier TDO-1)

From Gunter's Space Page,

"TDO-2 is the alpha numeric name of the multi-manifest small satellite vehicle flying with the AEHF-6 mission, is carrying multiple U.S. Government payloads that will provide optical calibration capabilities, which will support space domain awareness. The mission of TDO-2 is to support space domain awareness through optical calibration and satellite laser ranging."

Visibility isn’t really great around the Cape, lot of clouds too, but the wind is almost nonexistent, at least.

Skill think five SRBS is just weird.

There are launches that go up with just one, and even the two srb and three srb launches are ayssemitrical
