Today, the GOES-R satellite launched from Kennedy Space Center at approximately 642 EST! As a forecaster, I am very excited about the flow of data and imagery that will be available to us in the near future. Congratulation to all those who have invested so much time and energy into this project.
SPoRT would like to thank our collaborators who have worked with us to develop forecasting and other applications for this mission during recent years. And we look forward to continued collaborative projects in the future!
