Participants Learned about real-world Earth, atmospheric, and rocket science, and NPP’s cutting-edge satellite instrument technology.
The NPP mission will link the current generation of Earth-observing satellites called the Earth Observing System (EOS) to a next-generation of operational polar-orbiting environmental satellites called the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS), managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
All this was capped by a spectacular flawless launch early Friday morning.
