OCO-2 launch successful!

After the OCO-1 and Glory spacecraft were both lost to launch failures, OCO-2 has successfully joined the A-Train (A for “afternoon orbit”) constellation in Earth orbit.  It blasted off in the wee hours of the morning from Vandenburg AFB; weather was great, despite a bit of fog.
