"Each Atlas V rocket uses a Russian-built RD-180 engine burning kerosene and liquid oxygen to power its first stage and an American-built RL10 engine burning liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen to power its Centaur upper stage."

To the guy filming: Shut up, ese. You're ruining the moment!

That was pretty cool video. One of these days I want to see something go into space in person.

Awesome they did it at night, appears to be the best time to view it.
