Building the Nation's Newest Weather Satellite

Say you need a new weather satellite. Is it as simple as selecting options and clicking to order? Not quite. Building a vital national asset like the GOES-R spacecraft takes teams of meteorologists and engineers working together to figure out new ways for getting the best weather forecast possible. After all, reliable weather forecasts affect all aspects of life, from recreation to commerce to defense. In order to generate those forecasts experts need superb data, and in order to get it they took the best technologies available and improved on them.
