GOES-S is going up! A pre-launch news briefing at Kennedy Space Center begins at 12pm CST; it will air on both NASA-TVs. At 1:30pm on NASA-TV3 the science briefing will take place; that's also from Kennedy.

Tomorrow at 9am CST the GOES-S rollout will be broadcast on NASA-TV1; then at 10am CST a social media briefing will occur (broadcast on both NASA-TVs).

The rollout will be replayed on both NASA-TVs tomorrow at 1:30pm CST and 6:30pm CST.
