SpaceX has raised $1 billion in financing with two investors, reports CNBC's Dominic Chu. The rocket carries the Deep Space Climate Observatory, nicknamed DSCOVR, a partnership of NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The satellite, then called Triana - and lampooned as "GoreSat" - was due to launch on the ill-fated space shuttle Columbia mission in 2003, but it was pulled from the manifest and put into storage after President George H.W. Zee Media BureauTokyo: The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has again delayed the launch of its cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS), which was scheduled for August 17 (Monday), as unfavorable weather is forecasted.
Forecasters world-wide came to rely on QuikSCAT wind data to issue timely warnings and make accurate forecasts of tropical and extratropical storms, wave heights, sea ice, aviation weather, iceberg movement, coral bleaching events, and El Nino.
I'm was not and am not into sports cars and have had some kind of station wagon most of my life but the Z was a neat little car that looked perfect for the niche.
In their 8 am EDT Tuesday Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave 97L 2-day and 5-day odds of development near 0%. In a clever reuse of existing hardware, NASA will install a microwave scatterometer aboard the International Space Station. The loss of QuickSCAT was felt by weather forecasters at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, but NOAA did not feel it was a high enoguh priority to justify the expense of a replacement satellite.

RapidScat will will be launched to the space station aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule in 2014. It has frequently been proposed that NASA and other customers might save time and money by hosting instruments aboard a space station or human-tended space platform, rather than building a dedicated satellite.
According to the US space agency NASA, JAXA is delaying the launch of its H-II Transport Vehicle (HTV)-5 to the ISS from the Tanegashima Space Center in southern Japan due to an unfavourable weather forecast at the launch site for the next two days. Members of the Robotics Flight Control team at NASA and CSA (Canadian Space Agency) sent commands from their ground control center to the ISS to move the robots Canadarm2 and Dextre to install RapidScat on the Space Station on Tuesday, September 30, 2014.
An area of disturbed weather (Invest 90E) was located a few hundred miles south of Acapulco, Mexico on Tuesday morning, and was headed west-northwest near 10 mph. Instead, NOAA and NASA are concentrating on getting the next generation of weather satellites, called GOES-R, off the ground. It will be installed on the end of the station’s Columbus laboratory as an autonomous payload requiring no interaction by station crew members. Loaded with more than 4.5 tons of supplies, including water, spare parts and experiment hardware for the six-person space station crew, the unpiloted cargo craft, named Kounotori, Japanese for “white stork,” will travel five days to reach the space station. Accurate wind radii are critical to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC), and Guam Weather Forecast Office (WFO) watch and warning process, since they affect the size of tropical storm and hurricane watch and warning areas.

In their 8 am EDT Tuesday Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave 90E 2-day and 5-day odds of development of 50% and 90%, respectively. It might become more common in the future with the advent of commercial platforms and stations, such as Bigelow’s Alpha Station, pricing for which was recently announced.

The ISS-RapidSCAT instrument will help improve weather forecasts, including hurricane monitoring, and understandings of how ocean-atmosphere interactions affect climate. The other main alternative, the OSCAT instrument, which was sent into orbit on September 23, 2009, on the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) Oceansat-2 satellite, suffered an irrecoverable instrument failure on 20 February 2014.The other option is the Windsat instrument aboard the Coriolis satellite (launched in 2003), which measures wind speed and wind direction using a different technique.
