NASA Loses Another Climate Satellite – What’s Next? [VIDEO]

NASA‘s Glory satellite was destroyed when its protective fairing failed to open, rendering it unable to achieve orbit.

As cnet’s Bill Harwood explains, it’s a $424 million boo-boo, and that’s on top of the very similar Orbiting Carbon Observatory loss in 2009.

Also lost in the mission were three small CubeSat experiments.

It seems that the Rocket Gremlins are determined to keep us from studying climate change. Fortunately, there are other missions already watching the Sun, the Earth, and the weather, but these losses are significant to say the least.

It’s your tax money. What do you think? Should we launch more climate missions to replace Glory?
