NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory spacecraft, or DSCOVR, has been uncovered and is ready for processing in the high bay of Building 1 at the Astrotech payload processing facility in Titusville, Florida, near Kennedy Space Center.

DSCOVR is a partnership between NOAA, NASA and the U.S. Air Force. DSCOVR will maintain the nation's real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of NOAA's space weather alerts and forecasts. Launch is currently scheduled for January 2015 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 v 1.1 launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
