Technicians carefully unload NOAA’s GOES-R, which weighs more than 6,000 pounds – about the same size as a pilot whale. More accurate, faster data and more precise imagery means when a hurricane is bearing down on our coastlines, officials can make better decisions about evacuations. (Michael Starobin, NOAA/NASA)
