Lift-off: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap101214.html . Is this the US rocket that uses Russian motors? Or would that be the Atlas?

I remember years ago in the early Ariane days listening to the live feeds for the various launches and the contrast between the Delta launch team and Ariane was "dramatic" (our work meant we were on the NASA STDN network so got all the live voice ...). Delta team were really laid back (one launch there was a boat down range and the systems had tried to hold the launch but somebody reckoned it was OK and was sitting on the override button whereas Ariane was "Hold ... OK, scratched my nose, itch gone, start again").
