NASA Launches First Mission to Track Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

NASA Launches First Mission to Track Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

just successfully launched a new satellite that will track atmospheric carbon dioxide – the greenhouse gas that most climate scientists agree is the main driver of global warming . The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) lifted off aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket at approximately 2:56 a.m. at Vandenberg Air Force Base along the central California coast. The two-year, $468 mission marks the first time that the space agency will study and collect data on atmospheric CO2.
