Everything is progressing toward the #DeltaIVHeavy launch of the #NROL44 mission for the @NatReconOfc. The mission is set to lift off on Thurs., Dec. 10 from SLC-37. The launch time is 6:15 p.m. EST. Today’s forecast shows a 90% chance of favorable weather conditions for launch.

Good news, not long to wait now, I will have my fingers and toes all crossed in the hope that the Delta IV Heavy lifts off today.

Good news at last concerning last nights launch, I had missed it due to the fact that it was past midnight in the UK when it was launched.

With #NROL82 next week, & given the eventful campaign of NROL-44 last year, we spoke with @ulalaunch on how they're ensuring those same issues won't happen at Vandenberg & won't recur in Florida. #DeltaIVHeavy

Just finished remote camera setup for NROL-82/Delta IV Heavy ahead of launch tomorrow from legendary SLC-6 at Vandenberg AFB. Fingers crossed the weather cooperates and we get some great imagery! @NASASpaceflight @ulalaunch @NatReconOfc #NROL82

Really nice touch on the NROL-82 Delta IV Heavy from @ulalaunch. "Salute to our front-line medical workers! In harm's way to keep us healthy while we flight to keep America safe." @NASASpaceflight #NROL82
