ULA provides launch services using three expendable launch systems - Delta II, Delta IV and Atlas V. The Atlas and Delta launch system families have been used for more than 50 years to carry a variety of payloads including weather, telecommunications and national security satellites, as well as deep space and interplanetary exploration missions in support of scientific research. ULA has also provided launch services for non-government satellites. (Lockheed Martin retains the rights to market Atlas commercially Boeing retains similar rights for Delta.)
You may know that Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon in 1969. You may even know that the last man to walk on the Moon was Gene Cernan in 1972. How well do you know the U.S. Space Program before it ever launched?
