NASA & NOAA to launch GOES-T Weather Satellite which will study our Planet
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) planning to send (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite) GOES-T to study weather, climate change, storms over of our planet Earth.
When this Satellite would be Launched
The GOES-T would be lanuch on 4:38 p.m. EST (21:38 UTC) on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, which will give date to help improve forecasting of weather. It would be sent into Geostationary Orbit with the help of United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V at Cape Caneveral Space Force Station, Florida
Where will be the Satellite GOES-T placed?
It will be placed in Geosynchronous orbit which is about 22,300 miles above western hemisphere. It will remain in static position monitoring Wester part of USA, Alaska and Hawaii
Where is GOES-T going?
It eventually will go into a geosynchronous orbit about 22,300 miles/35,800 kilometers) above the western hemisphere. It will be geostationary, remaining in a fixed position in the sky over Pacific Ocean so it can monitor the western U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. It will take about 10 days to reach the Static orbit.
Weather Forecasting how GOES-T would help in?
The GOES-T after reaching the orbit and it will replace GOES -17, The GOES-T has the capability of scanning the Earth five times faster than its predesscor GOES-17 and has 4 times the better resolution than GOES-17, It will predit flash floods, severe weather, hurricanes, fog, tornadoes, thunderstorms and other weather forecasting
