A spy satellite attempts it's third launch this week into Earth's orbit


United launch Alliance (ULA) will have their third attempt to launch their Delta IV rocket Friday, UPI reported.

The launch for the space company's NROL-47 mission was already delayed twice this week, the first time due to high winds and the second time because of an issue with one of the valves.

A spy satellite for the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office will be carried by the rocket, and the launch will occur in California.

The launch is ULA's chance to show they are reliable after a failure from a Space X mission, UPI reported.

SpaceX reportedly failed to launch a spacecraft into orbit last week, though SpaceX and the government are trading blame for what went wrong.
