NASA To Launch Orbiting Carbon Observatory Two July 1, 2014

Hey Space Placers!

As I have said in the past NASA is in the weather and climate business.

On July 1, 2014 NASA is scheduled to launch another of its Earth Science satellites, Orbiting Carbon Observatory Two or OCO-2. The first OCO failed to reach orbit so this is the second in the series and that is why it is designated as OCO-2.

OCO-2 will orbit Earth and monitor carbon dioxide levels from manmade and natural sources. This of course has major impact on the planet in terms of climate and heating.

The launch will be from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
