New Quickscat on order

Postby Florida Beach Gal » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:03 am

The Quickscat satellite failed several years ago. There may now be a replacement scheduled for next year....


NASA announced that a new QuikSCAT-like instrument called ISS-RapidScat will be launched in 2014 on a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft, and installed on the International Space Station (ISS.)
