The Second Stage of OCO-2's Delta II Rocket

July 7, 2014
The second stage of the Delta II rocket for NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 mission, or OCO-2, is lifted into the mobile service tower at Space Launch Complex 2 on Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Operations were under way to mate the second stage of the rocket to the first stage, partly visible outside the tower. The rocket's second stage will insert OCO-2 into a polar Earth orbit.
