Summary: NASA will host a media event on June 6 at the Astrotech Space Operations facility in Titusville, Florida, to view NOAA’s GOES-U spacecraft, the final satellite in the GOES-R Series. GOES-U is set to launch on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket from Kennedy Space Center on June 25, with a two-hour window starting at 5:16 p.m. EDT. The event offers media the chance to photograph the satellite and speak with experts, with strict cleanroom guidelines in place.
