GOLD stands for Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk. It will inspect the dynamic region of near-Earth space where space and Earth’s uppermost atmosphere meet. Historically difficult to observe, this is a little understood region that responds both to the lower atmosphere below and the tumult of space weather from above.
GOLD is a hosted instrument roughly the size of a mini-fridge that will fly aboard a commercial communications satellite, SES-14 — and it’s the first NASA science mission to do so.
Joining us are NASA scientists Sarah Jones and Alex Young and SES director of hosted payloads, Todd Gossett. They will share details of GOLD’s mission and why they’re excited about this particular launch. Learn more: https://www.nasa.gov/gold
