A rocket successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 11:15 Thursday night.
Cold temperatures were threatening to delay the launch for most of the day.
The United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket is carrying a National Reconnaissance Office payload.
CubeSat Satellites made by Cal Poly students are on the rocket.
The CubeSat is a specially-made box that helps launch the satellites away from the rocket when it enters space.
