NOAA’s GOES-S spacecraft is one step closer in the final journey to T-zero, as the booster and Centaur upper stage arrive for inspection. These components will be used to stack the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, which will launch the GOES-S advanced weather satellite from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Management of the launch service for GOES-S is the responsibility of NASA’s Launch Services Program based here at Kennedy.
