Atlas V launch coming up

Tuesday, 22 January 2013

NASA's Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System will get an upgrade this month when the agency launches the first of a new generation of communications satellites to connect spacecraft to the ground stations that support them.

A United Launch Alliance Atlas V 401 is due to loft the TDRS-K spacecraft Jan. 29 on a course to geosynchronous orbit where the spacecraft will have a wide view of Earth.
