The launch of a Delta IV Heavy from Vandenberg Air Force Base this weekend is still on track.

United Launch Alliance announced Friday morning that the Launch Readiness Review was complete and the Saturday morning launch was given a unanimous “go.”

The rocket was first set to launch in December but issues during more than one attempt forced ULA to postpone the launch indefinitely.

When the rocket takes off it will deliver a satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office into orbit.

The launch is set for 11:05 a.m. Saturday from SLC-6.
