DENVER (CBS4) – After two failed attempts, Colorado’s-own United Launch Alliance sent a spy satellite into space on the third try Friday.

A DeltaIV rocket carrying the classified satellite launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Officials say the mission is in support of national defense.

It is the first launch for ULA this year. Another is set for next week.
