NROL-42 Launch Highlights

As always, United Launch Alliance has produced a launch highlights clip for their most recent launch, NROL-42. This classified military payload was launched via an Atlas V booster from Vandeberg Air Force Base in California.

The launch highlights clip follows the traditional format of showing the preparation of the booster, rollback of the service towers, and finally incredible views of the launch itself, up to solid rocket booster separation.

This was quite the beautiful launch, and this highlights clip only shows a small fraction of some of the flight of the Atlas V. To check out the full livestream, check out this article.

That all being said, I leave you with another awesome launch highlights video, provided by United Launch Alliance. Enjoy!
