Inside a high bay at Astrotech Space Operations in Titusville, Fla., the GOES-N spacecraft is revealed after removal of the fairing to allow testing. GOES-N was demated from its Boeing Delta IV launch vehicle on Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The launch was postponed in August 2005 due to technical issues. Due to the extended length of time the spacecraft had been atop the Delta IV without launching, the weather satellite will undergo some precautionary retesting and state of health checks. GOES-N is the latest in a series of Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites for NOAA and NASA providing continuous monitoring necessary for intensive data analysis.
