NPP Delta II Tower Rollback


The tower protecting the Delta II rocket was moved away from the rocket last night in preparation for todays launch of the NPP Spacecraft. Launch is scheduled for 09:48 UTC, 2:48am local time. NPP will extend and improve upon the Earth system data records established by NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) fleet of satellites that have provided critical insights into the dynamics of the entire Earth system: clouds, oceans, vegetation, ice, solid Earth and atmosphere.
