DSCOVR Mission Passes Major Milestones
“NOAA will manage the DSCOVR mission, giving advanced warning of approaching solar storms. NASA, funded by NOAA, refurbished the DSCOVR satellite and instruments, which were in storage for several years. The U.S. Air Force is funding and overseeing the launch of DSCOVR, which will be aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.”
Keith’s note: In storage for “several years”? It would be more accurate to say “for more than a decade”.
