NASA Kennedy Space Center Launches Photo Page for NOAA DSCOVR

NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida has activated their photo page for NOAA's Deep Space Climate Observatory spacecraft, or DSCOVR mission in preparation for the launch. New photographs are added almost daily and are available for download.

This photo is one from the website. In this picture, preparations to launch NOAA’s DSCOVR near completion in the Building 1 high bay of the Astrotech payload processing facility in Titusville, Florida, near Kennedy Space Center.

DSCOVR is a partnership between NOAA, NASA and the U.S. Air Force. DSCOVR will maintain the nation's real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of NOAA's space weather alerts and forecasts. Launch is targeted for no earlier than Feb. 8 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 v 1.1 launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
