U.S. satellite launcher gets first request for Vulcan rocket – change the name, Reuters
“Hours after unveiling its next-generation “Vulcan” rocket, the company that launches most of America’s satellites, United Launch Alliance, ran into its first problem – the rocket’s name. “Vulcan is a trademark of Vulcan Inc. and we have informed ULA of our trademark rights,” Chuck Beames, president of the Paul Allen-backed Vulcan Aerospace told Reuters. “Paul Allen and Vulcan were early leaders within space exploration with the launch of SpaceShipOne more than a decade ago. We are flattered by ULA’s tribute to our legacy by naming their new rocket ‘Vulcan,'” Beames added.”
