21 November 2016 Current Affairs: The National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) has launched the highly advanced geostationary weather satellite Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R (GOES-R).

The Satellite was launched by NASA on behalf of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). It was launched on board of Atlas 5 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

It will be into the operations within a year after undergoing testing and validation of new instruments including the first operational lightning mapper in geostationary orbit. Its primary instrument Advanced Baseline Imager will provide images of Earth’s weather, oceans and environment with 16 different spectral bands.  It is also first satellite to carry a lightning mapper instrument to geostationary orbit.
