Boeing Delta II rocket - Delta II liftoff

CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION, Fla.—Clouds of smoke and steam billow around the Boeing Delta II rocket as it roars into the sky after liftoff. The rocket is carrying NASA’s Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) satellite. FUSE was developed to investigate the origin and evolution of the lightest elements in the universe - hydrogen and deuterium. In addition, the FUSE satellite will examine the forces and process involved in the evolution of the galaxies, stars and planetary systems by investigating light in the far ultraviolet portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
