Description : GOES G was launched in May 1986, but was destroyed when its Delta booster rocket went out of control.
Provision of timely global weather information, including advance warning of developing storms, is the primary function of the U.S. GOES meteorological program.
GOES-G is the ninth in a series of NASA-developed, NOAA-operated, geosychronous and operational spacecraft.
The GOES spacecraft transmitted meteorological imagery and data to the Wallops Island, Virginia, ground station, which relayed the data to the World Weather Building near Suitland, Maryland. The information was then processed and distributed to users throughout the United States. The GOES program was managed by the Office of Applications, NASA Headquarters, Washington, D.C. Project management of the GOES system was assigned to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
