Sep 9 ICON
nasa northrop grumman
Vehicle Pegasus-XL
Location Cape Canaveral AFS
Time 9:25 PM EDT / 2019-09-10 01:25:00Z
Window 1 hour, 30 minutes

NASA’s Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) satellite will be the 44th satellite launched to orbit by the air-dropped Pegasus XL rocket, carried to drop altitude by an L-1011 carrier aircraft. ICON will study Earth's ionosphere, a region of the upper atmosphere affected by solar storms and weather phenomena where terrestrial weather meets space weather. Disturbances in the ionosphere affect GPS/satellite navigation and radio transmissions.

Oct 10 Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON)
nasa northrop grumman
Vehicle Pegasus-XL
Location Cape Canaveral AFS
Time 9:25 PM EDT / 2019-10-11 01:25:00Z
Window 1 hour, 30 minutes

An air-launched Northrop Grumman Pegasus XL rocket will deploy NASA’s Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) satellite into orbit. ICON will study the ionosphere, a region of Earth’s upper atmosphere where terrestrial weather meets space weather. Disturbances in the ionosphere triggered by solar storms or weather activity in the lower atmosphere can cause disturbances in GPS navigation and radio transmissions.
