Photos: Atlas V Delivery for GOES-S Mission

The main stages of the Atlas V launch vehicle tasked with launching the GOES-S weather satellite arrived at Florida’s Cape Canaveral on January 22, 2018 via the Delta Mariner operated by ULA to ship their launch vehicle components. After rolling off the sea-going vessel, the Common Core Booster first stage and Centaur upper stage were moved to the Atlas Spaceflight Operations Center for temporary storage, acceptance checks and pre-assembly.
