GOES-S Countdown To T-Zero, Episode 1: Launch Fever


NOAA’s GOES-S spacecraft, the next in a series of advanced weather satellites, arrives at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center aboard a U.S. Air Force C-5 Super Galaxy aircraft. The satellite’s arrival at the Florida spaceport, followed by its move into the Astrotech Space Operations processing facility in nearby Titusville, signal the start of the final journey to T-zero. GOES-S is slated to launch in March 2018 aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.


GOES-S Countdown to T-Zero, Episode 2: Special Delivery


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.
