    The Atlas-Centaur was an American expendable launch system designed and built by General Dynamics Convair Division in San Diego, CA. It was derived from the SM-65 Atlas missile. It was a member of the Atlas family of rockets, and was used for 61 orbital launches between 1962 and 1983.[1][dead link] It was replaced by the Atlas G, which still contains a Centaur upper stage on top of an Atlas rocket. It was the first rocket to use cryogenic fuel; the Centaur stage featured two Pratt and Whitney RL-10 engines that used cryogenic propellant: liquid hydrogen(LH2)-473 deg. F and liquid oxygen(LO2) -320 deg. F.
