Guess they haven't run out of Russian engines yet.

Watch who?

Pfft.  ULA launches are boring.  There aren't nearly enough camera angles and they never even bother showing the booster recovery.

It's the illumanati folks...all Bohemian grove...Clintons, Rothschild, Trump, Nixon, Soros. It's All true...
They even kill a baby to sacrifice to the owl. Alex Jones told me so.

This is going to be a weird one- 511 configuration.  That means a single solid booster on one side of the Atlas, so you're going to see the main engine gimbaled off to the side to counteract the thrust.

SRB configs for Atlas are all weird- none of them are symmetrical, they just got slapped onto places where there wasn't anything else.

In this experiment you will require
One sterilized, standardized, scientificized owl.
(o-ooo Observe the owl)

ROTATE YOUR OWL!

Yeah.  Even Jebediah Kerman would think twice before riding on that candle.

They don't recover them. For their new Vulcan rocket which will probably first launch next year they will recover the engines only.

/The sound you hear is Elon laughing.

//Mr. Bezos, where are ULA's engines?

..and even THAT isn't set in stone.

They announced that they would like to have the first stage jettison the engine, which would then descend with an inflatable heat shield, then caught in mid-air with a helicopter, but I don't think they've shown any -actual- engineering towards this effect since that announcement.

..though it'd probably help if Jeff gave them any actual engines to work with.

Payload satellites to spy on other satellites.

Now we know what the mission is, they will fly a giant magnet around up there and use it to gather all the metallic space junk.

In space, nothing is set in stone until they actually do it.
