GOES-R is scheduled launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida atop an Atlas V rocket on November 19, 2016. The current GOES-East and GOES-West have been faithfully providing continuous imagery and data on atmospheric conditions, Earth weather, and space weather, and even aiding in search and rescue missions for almost a decade. So, with the launch of the first of the next generation of GOES satellites, GOES-R, what is NOAA trying to accomplish?
