NASA is slated to launch a long-awaited satellite from Florida on October 9th that’s designed to help scientists better predict how space weather events will behave high above Earth. But to get to space, the rocket launching this satellite won’t take off from the ground like most others do. Instead, it’ll launch from underneath the wing of a giant airplane, climbing to space from midair.Will ICON fly at long last?

After years of delays, NASA is finally poised to launch a satellite to better understand space weather - The Verge
