NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), scheduled to launch January 23, will give forecasters more reliable measurements of solar wind speed, improving their ability to monitor harmful solar activity, and replace an aging research satellite currently used to warn of impacts to Earth. The satellite will also include earth-observing instruments. Doug Whiteley, Deputy Director at NOAA/NESDIS/OSD, described the readying of DSCOVR as “quite a journey” in a press conference Thursday. The satellite was built over a decade ago for a project named Triana that was subsequently canceled, and it had...
