University Of Energy And Natural Resources Partners With National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration In The U.S. To Launch Satellite Into Space 

The University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) in partnership with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USA have launched the COSMIC-2 satellite in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

SpaceX’s third Falcon Heavy rocket originally meant to take off in a predawn launch on Tuesday took off from the Kennedy Space Center at 2:30 am, delivering two dozen research and weather observation spacecraft into orbit on a marathon three-and-a-half mission for the U.S. Air Force.

The mission included the successful landing of the Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters back at Cape Canaveral, and a SpaceX recovery boat netted part of the rocket’s payload fairing for the first time after trying for more than a year.
