New GOES-T weather satellite to offer scientists sharper eyes on Earth’s climate

The GOES-T satellite is ready to take its place as part of the U.S.’s most sophisticated weather and environmental observation system.

The satellite, which will be operated by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will launch on Tuesday (March 1) aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket blasting off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. A two-hour launch window opens at 4:38 p.m. EST (2138 GMT) and NASA will livestream the launch, which you can also watch here on
