With the arrival of spring, an iconic garden has now sprouted a bright blue new addition — a last-of-its-kind launch vehicle.

The Delta II debuted Tuesday (March 23) in the rocket garden at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. The addition of the retired United Launch Alliance (ULA) rocket marked the first “growth” to the visitor complex’s collection of historic boosters in many years.
