A private company launched an Atlas 5 rocket from Florida's Space Coast on Tuesday.

It carried a crucial missile defense satellite into orbit.

This is the second satellite the United Launch Alliance has launched for the U.S. Air Force.

And it's U.L.A.'s 69th launch since the company was formed in 2006.
