Congratulations to ULA for landing a $389.1 million contract to launch the upcoming Solar Probe Plus mission.
Centennial, Colo. (March 18, 2015) – NASA’s Launch Services Program announced today that it selected United Launch Alliance’s (ULA’s) proven Delta IV Heavy vehicle to launch the Solar Probe Plus mission to study the sun’s outer atmosphere. This award resulted from a competitive procurement that considered multiple launch providers.
“The ULA team is very proud that NASA has selected the Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle for this extraordinary science mission,” said Jim Sponnick, ULA vice president, Atlas and Delta Programs. “The Delta IV Heavy rocket is uniquely qualified to provide the launch service for this vital science mission that will help us understand processes near the surface of the sun that affect space weather and radiation environments. We look forward to successfully delivering this critical spacecraft to orbit for NASA.”
The Solar Probe Plus mission is scheduled to launch in July 2018 from Space Launch Complex-37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. This mission will launch aboard a Delta IV Heavy, vehicle which features a center common booster core along with two strap-on common booster cores. Each common booster core is powered by the RS-68 cryogenic engine. An RL10 cryogenic engine will power the second stage. Due to the extremely high energy required for this mission, the Delta IV Heavy’s capability will be augmented by a powerful third stage provided by Orbital ATK, based on the flight proven Star-48 solid rocket motor.
“ULA has considerable successful experience integrating third stages on top of our already capable vehicles,” Sponnick added. “We did something very similar when we launched the New Horizons mission, which will fly by Pluto and its moons later this year. We are proud to have Orbital ATK as our teammate for the development of the third stage for the SPP mission.”
Solar Probe Plus will repeatedly sample the near-sun environment, revolutionizing our knowledge and understanding of coronal heating and of the origin and evolution of the solar wind and answering critical questions in heliophysics that have been ranked as top priorities for decades. The probe will make direct, in-situ measurements of the region where some of the most hazardous solar energetic particles are energized.
With more than a century of combined heritage, United Launch Alliance is the nation’s most experienced and reliable launch service provider. ULA has successfully delivered more than 90 satellites to orbit that provide critical capabilities for troops in the field, aid meteorologists in tracking severe weather, enable personal device-based GPS navigation and unlock the mysteries of our solar system.

The Business Leaders for Responsible Government (BLRG) group is getting a new direction under the leadership of co-chairs Bill Shepard and David Schlatter. The group will host structured monthly meetings on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 7:30 am – 9:00 am at the South Metro Denver Chamber’s WhippleWood CPAs Conference Center.
The first meeting, held on Tuesday, March 24, will focus on oil and gas. The meeting will feature three speakers who will address the implications of potential legislation, the Governor’s Taskforce recommendations, and potential 2016 ballot issues. Speakers will include Commissioner Nancy Doty, an elected official, and Vital for Colorado speakers.
The monthly meetings will be conducted according to the following structure: Local elected official (mayor or councilmember) will provide a 10 minute overview of local issues; county, state or federal representative will provide a 10 minute overview of current issues or important priorities; subject matter expert will speak on a current hot topic issue for 30 minutes. A question and answer period will be included, followed by a breakout discussion of potential political action activities and next steps for approximately 30 minutes.
“The new structure reflects our members’ desire for two things: education on current political issues as they relate to the business community, and a forum to take action via strategic political activities. We feel that these meetings will provide both opportunities to interact with elected officials, as well as create opportunities for our members to actively engage in the political process,” said Natalie Harden, Director of Public Policy and Economic Development.
The group plans to tackle important and divisive issues in 2015, including meetings on oil and gas, TABOR refunds, construction defects legislation, tax reform, urban renewal authorities, the state budget, ballot reform, and funding for higher education.
The BLRG committee structure will now include a leadership committee comprised of Bill Shepard, David Schlatter, Jeff Wasden, and Natalie Harden that will work to create the vision for the overall group and lead engagement opportunities. The BLRG will also utilize a steering committee, comprised of Chelsie Miera (Fisher), Bill Shepard, Tom McDermott, David Bear, David Schlatter Dennis Brovarone Eric Lake Kevin Sullivan, Mike Sutherland, Natalie Harden, Paul Archer, Robin Whitelaw, Sue Kenfield, Michelle Mckinney, Mae Ann Saas and Jeri Kay Lockwood.
