SpaceX DSCOVR weather satellite takes off!
SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launch on Feb 11, 2015 was a huge success! Third time lucky!
Al Gore’s idea for this weather satellite has taken 17 long years to succeed.
Many people have laughed at his idea, calling it ‘nutty’, ‘boondoggle’ and “Goresat”.
Finally, this $340 million weather satellite has gone into space to do its job!
Well done to SpaceX, NASA and all the DSCOVR teams to make this a reality.
Elon Musk must be smiling from ear to ear!
This is definitely a Cigar Day!
