Upcoming Show: Sneak Peek of NASA’s GRACE Twins (media briefing)
Monday, April 30 at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET, 1700 UTC)

Join NASA to discuss the upcoming launch of a mission that will study our planet’s changing climate and Earth system processes, and have far-reaching benefits to society, such as improving water resource management.

The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On (GRACE-FO) mission will measure and monitor monthly changes in how mass is redistributed within and among Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, land and ice sheets, as well as within Earth itself. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
The briefing participants are:
David Jarrett, GRACE-FO program executive in the Earth Science Division at NASA Headquarters, Washington
Michael Watkins, GRACE-FO science lead and director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California
Frank Webb, GRACE-FO project scientist at JPL
Phil Morton, NASA GRACE-FO project manager at JPL
Frank Flechtner, GRACE-FO project manager for the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), in Potsdam, Germany
Media and the public may ask questions live during the briefing or after on Twitter using the hashtag #askNASA.
GRACE-FO is scheduled to launch May 19 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California as a “rideshare” on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying five Iridium communications satellites. GRACE-FO is a partnership between NASA and GFZ.
