Orphaned references in List of Thor and Delta launches (2010–2019)[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of List of Thor and Delta launches (2010–2019)'s orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "spaceflightnow":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 05:29, 13 January 2010 (UTC)


Is it time to take "Thor" out of the title? I don't think there has been a Thor in about 50 years. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 02:58, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

  • The article relates to the Thor and Delta families, not to individual rockets. It is also part of a series of articles entitled "List of Thor and Delta launches", so consistency is an issue as well. And for the record, the most recent Thor launch was in October last year; an Extra Extended Long Tank Thor used as the first stage of Delta 357. --W. D. Graham 07:48, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
OK, leave it as it is. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 17:22, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
The article is currently quite confusing, because the only "Thor" mention in the launch table is a comment on the final Delta II. The average reader doesn't know that Delta II has anything to do with "Thor". I suppose the confusion arrived when this list was split into decades. If Thor is in the title, it should be explained better in the top and the list. Greg (talk) 19:50, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
