1. Aquarius is scheduled to launch at 7:20am PT.

    From the video chat:

    Aquarius will help scientist understand what’s driving changes and fluctuations in salinity — and how those changes relate to an acceleration of the global water cycle and climate change.

    Ocean salinity is a key driver of ocean currents, a critical factor in climate processes, and an indicator of Earth’s changing water cycle.
