ULA’s 1st Vulcan Centaur rocket arrives at Florida launch site

The first of a new generation of United Launch Alliance rockets has arrived at its Florida spaceport to prepare for a debut flight. 

United Launch Alliance (ULA) engineers unloaded the first Vulcan Centaur rocket on Sunday (Jan. 22), rolling it off the company’s RocketShip barge and onto dry land at Port Canaveral near its launch site, Cape Canaveral space Force station. The new rocket will make its first flight in the next few months, if all goes according to plan, sending a private lunar lander to the moon alongside two Amazon internet satellites.
