Tuesday’s Launch Weather Forecast: 70 Percent ‘Go’

There is a 70 percent chance of favorable weather for the launch of DSCOVR at 6:05 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Feb. 10. The primary concern is for winds at liftoff out of limits. The NOAA spacecraft is targeted to launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Continuous countdown coverage for DSCOVR will begin here on the blog and on NASA TV at 5 p.m.

  1. Dear Steven Siceloff,
    I, Like many millions of people around the world who are waiting and watching with great interest for the launch, hopefully in the next 24 hours or so, if weather is almost perfect to permit the launch.
    I pray upon that note all goes according to plan and that of good weather, wishing it be a successful launch and looking forward to further reports on the mission. All the best to the whole team involved.
    Yours sincerely from New Zealand,
    From another great space fan,
    Dina Blake.
