This Saturday evening, NASA will launch the GOES-R weather satellite, and a new 21st century era in weather and climate prediction will begin. This will be the equivalent of going from an old black and white TV, to an HD flat screen in color, and if all goes well it will revolutionize forecasting. I have been invited to attend the launch and will be posting about it here and on my Facebook and Twitter accounts.. The launch is set for 5:42 pm EST Saturday evening.
