To one-up SLS, ULA to launch Delta IV Heavier from SLC-40


Cape Canaveral, FL - ULA has announced that their "Delta IV Heavier" rocket that will directly compete with NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. Delta IV Heavier will launch from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40)

SpaceX, who had the pad on lease said "We gave the pad away because we wanted to work on stuff on the Starship side. You know, expolody rockets and stuff."

To add to that, ULA's Bory Truno said "If I am being honest, we threatened to pull out our ULA seagull and pull an AMOS-6 on them - so they complied pretty nicely"

The "Delta IV Heavier" rocket is set to launch in late 2022, with a modified second stage that will dock to the ULA seagull (already launched to the moon and back into orbit in 2021) and provide it with food and updated sniper equipment.
