realchrisbrey The SMAP observatory will be launched tomorrow morning from Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA. The top of the tower on the left of this photo houses the Delta II rocket, which first was used in 1989 for GPS satellites. There have since been 150 successful Delta II launches and it has a greater than 98 percent success rate. Catch the launch at 9:30 AM Eastern on Ustream.tv/nasajpl2
