CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — In November 2016, the GOES-R spacecraft, part of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) system, was launched. It was the first in a new class of weather monitoring satellites built for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). After transitioning to a geostationary orbit, it gained a new name – GOES-16. Now two of the follow-up spacecraft, GOES-S and GOES-T, are on track to be completed and launched as scheduled.
