The USA put a powerful weather satellite into space. It will change how we get weather information. The $1 billion GOES-R satellite will take photos five times faster than other satellites. Photos will be four times better quality. GOES-R will change weather forecasts. It is like the difference between black and white TV and HD TV.

GOES-R will give real-time photos. They will make us safer. Airplanes will miss dangerous air. GOES-R will zoom in on events like hurricanes, flooding and ash clouds. This will warn people about danger and save lives and homes. GOES-R will show the weather as it looks right now, not the weather of 30 minutes ago.
