The movie is anticipated to have a big opening at the box office, even with its "A" certificate and more than three hours of running time.
NASA has selected Elon MuskÂs Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) to award the contract regarding launch services for the GOES-U Mission. The Geostationary Operational Environmental satellite-U mission of NASA will provide advanced imagery, atmospheric measurements of EarthÂs weather, oceans, and environment, along with real-time mapping of total lightning activity and proper monitoring of solar activity and space weather.Â Â
The total cost of the NASA GOES-U Mission is estimated at about $152.5 million. Launch service or other mission-related costs will be included in the GOES-U Mission. The mission is directed to launch in April 2024 on Falcon Heavy Rocket from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.Â
GOES-U will be the fourth and final spacecraft in the GOES-R Series of geostationary weather satellites. The GOES-R Series is a joint effort of the US National Oceanic and atmospheric administration which further also includes GOES-R, GOES-S, GOES-T, and GOES-U. These highly capable weather satellites are 22,336 miles above the planetÂs surface. In other words, eye earth from geostationary orbits (35,785 kilometers).
In July NASA picked SpaceX to launch a spacecraft to Jupiter moon Europa. The data also showed that SpaceX has secured a contract from rocket company Astrobotic to send a new water-hunting rover to the moon unexplored Southpole.Â
GOES-T Satellite, the third and penultimate satellite in the series is expected to launch in January 2022. If the following launch and orbit checkout becomes successful GOES-T would become NOAAÂs Operational GOES west satellite.
