NPP Launch Slips Another Day

NPP Launch Slips Another Day

NASA has delayed the launch of the NPP satellite another day. The current schedule is to launch on October 28.

The agency said the delay will allow “time to complete the necessary engineering review before the payload fairing is installed around the spacecraft.”

The National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project (NPP) is a NASA earth science mission that will also serve an operational role for NOAA’s polar-orbiting weather satellite system.

The launch window that day is 2:48:01 – 2:57:11 PDT (5:48:01-5:57:11 EDT).
