美国航空航天局准备发射地球静止环境业务卫星- O或的GOES - O的,天气监测卫星。该航天器,它是在气象信息收集卫星由美国航空航天局设计的一系列最新的模型,将利用其传感器和仪器阵列,以提供更多技术先进的信息诺阿(美国国家海洋和大气管理局)和图像,是通常发生在美国的电视新闻节目。 


本的GOES - O是现在定于周六下午6点14分之间去和美国东部时间下午7时14分。
NASA is preparing to launch the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-O, or GOES-O, weather monitoring satellite. The spacecraft, which is the most recent model in the series of weather information gathering satellites designed by NASA, will use its array of sensors and instruments to provide more technologically advanced information to NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and the images that are typically seen on United States television newscasts.

The launch of the Delta IV rocket carrying the satellite had been scheduled for Friday, but was scrubbed at the last minute due to weather conditions at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The GOES-O is now scheduled to go on Saturday between 6:14 p.m. and 7:14 p.m. EDT.

在这里,于四月七日在两仪有效载荷在泰特斯维尔,佛罗里达州,有效载荷整流罩上半年处理设施移动周围的GOES - O的卫星。在空气动力学平稳鼻锥将在发射航天器的保护。 

Here, on April 7 at the Astrotech payload processing facility in Titusville, Fla., the first half of the payload fairing is moved around the GOES-O satellite. The aerodynamically smooth nose cone will protect the spacecraft during launch.

This version of the weather monitoring equipment developed by NASA will provide almost continuous imaging and sounding, which allows forecasters to better measure changes in atmospheric temperature and moisture distributions, increasing the accuracy of their forecasts and giving a more detailed picture of the subtle changes in minute-by-minute weather conditions.

3月19日,技术人员检查的GOES - O的卫星。当飞船到达轨道,美国宇航局将移交卫星控制诺阿,届时将指定的GOES - 14。
On March 19, technicians inspect the GOES-O satellite. Once the spacecraft reaches orbit, NASA will transfer control of the satellite to NOAA, at which time it will be designated GOES-14.
