Rockets got Nose Art
The National Reconnaissance Office put up another spy satellite last June. This one has a three-headed dragon painted on the side of its launch fairing, which is 12 feet in diameter, the same size as the diameter of a 727 airliner. They used a Delta 4 Heavy rocket to launch it, the biggest rocket in our current arsenal. Must be a heck of a satellite. Via Two Eyes Watching.
