Advanced GOES-T weather satellite to launch in March with instrument fix

The next Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite is set for launch, with improvements to avoid an instrument problem that caused issues in a predecessor mission.

The powerful weather satellite from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is set to launch March 1 at 4:38 p.m. EST (2138 GMT) from Cape Canaveral Space Station in Florida. GOES-T will ride to space aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket and spend several months in a commissioning period.
