USA launched a new rocket carrying a spy satellite.
On August 28, 2013 at 18:03 UTC the US "Delta 4-Heavy” rocket-carrier was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The launch was performed by United Launch Alliance supported by the 30th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited a US spy satellite.
The launch was named as the NROL-65 mission as it was done for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which is in charge of U. S. intelligence-gathering satellites, to support national defense, according to the United Launch Alliance, which also developed the rocket together with the U.S. Air Force.
Experts believe that this is a reconnaissance spacecraft of a KH-11/CRYSTAL type.

Soviet-era rocket orbited South Korean satellite.

On August 22, 2013 at 14:39 UTC the Russian "Dnepr” rocket-carrier was launched from a space base near Yasny, a small community in the Orenburg region in the southern part of Russia.
The rocket launched out of an underground silo (vertical cylindrical container for the storage and launching of intercontinental ballistic missiles) orbited the South Korean "KompSat-5” (Arirang-5) observing satellite.
The three-stage "Dnepr” rocket-carrier is derived from an SS-18 missile built to carry Russian nuclear weapons.
The "KompSat-5” satellite is designed for a five-year mission to collect high-resolution imagery to aid urban planners, emergency responders and environmental scientists.
