USA launched the most advanced U.S. weather satellite in history.
11:10

On November 19, 2016 at 23:42 UTC the "Atlas 5” rocket-carrier was launched from Complex 41 of Cape Canaveral launch site of US Air Force. The launch was performed by United Launch Alliance supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited the “GOES-R” meteorological satellite. The GOES-R (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R) will be the most sophisticated weather satellite with new technology never before seen and used in a geostationary orbit for forecasting. Officials estimate GOES-R will transmit more data in six months of operation than all previous GOES weather satellites combined.
