Kepler Joined to Delta II Rocket
Workers attached the Kepler spacecraft to the top of the Delta II rocket as launch preparations continued on pace for launch currently scheduled for no earlier than March 6 from Launch Pad 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The launch complex is equipped with a moveable structure that protects the satellite and rocket as the protective nose section is installed. The Delta II will use nine solid-fueled booster rockets and three stages to lift the Kepler to its place in space where it will watch stars for signs of planets like Earth outside the solar system.
