Just last Saturday, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched another satellite into the space. The satellite will provide NASA brand new tools that will help them predict weather, trace drought and study and monitor climate changes.
The recent satellite liftoff from Vandenberg Air Force Base located in Southern California was already the third try of NASA to launch the new satellite. The first try to launch the satellite was delayed due to the upper-level wind shear found above the base near Lomboc. The second try was cancelled due to the booster insulation-related problems revealed after an investigation.
