American space telescope launch.
23:10
On December 14, 2009 at 14:09 UTC a United Launch Alliance Delta 2 rocket successfully boosted the WISE (Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer) space telescope into polar orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
The two-stage rocket-carrier deployed the craft into an orbit 325 miles above Earth. NASA promises to discover millions of objects never seen before and revolutionize our view of the Universe.
The Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer will use advanced technologies to scan the sky with the clarity of a modern digital camera to reveal asteroids, comets, brown dwarfs, ultraluminous galaxies and new born stars that humans haven't laid eyes on.
