    The launch of the Atlas V rocket with the WorldView-4 satellite has been rescheduled.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The launch of the Atlas V rocket with the WorldView-4 satellite has been rescheduled until no earlier than next month, the United Launch Alliance (ULA) said.

    ​According to ULA, the fire has not caused any damage to any facilities and all ULA employees are safe.

    The launch of the WorldView-4 mission from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in the US state of California was postponed two times earlier this month because of a ground leak.

    The WorldView-4 satellite is a high-resolution commercial imaging satellite built by Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company and owned and operated by DigitalGlobe.
