“The U.S. military is scheduled to launch an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile from California overnight in a display of the U.S. nuclear forces’ readiness, officials said. The Air Force Global Strike Command launch is to occur during the window of 11:47 p.m. PT Tuesday and 5:47 a.m. Wednesday from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in North Vandenberg, Calif. The launch is a routine test that was scheduled years in advance and is done to ‘validate and verify the effectiveness, readiness and accuracy of the weapon system,’ Vandenberg Space Force Base said in an August statement announcing the launch.” (09/06/23)
