That was built in the last few years.
If I like something on NSF, it's probably because I know it to be accurate.  Every once in a while, it's just something I agree with.  Facts generally receive the former.

Yeah, and the RD-180 has a good track record, but turn your head to the RD-170 series and.......(I know that there were other problems on the Zenit that caused some of those failures, but still......)

Anyway here's to a good, beautiful flight in celebration of Atlas V reaching 50 flights!  :)

ULA:
Everything is progressing toward the launch of the ULA Atlas V rocket with the U.S. Air Force’s GPS IIF-8 satellite.

The countdown is underway and the team is not working any technical issues at this time.
