A United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket stands ready for launch at Space Launch Complex-2 with NASA’s Aquarius/SAC-D payload. NASA’s Aquarius, the primary instrument on the SAC-D observatory, will provide unprecedented global maps of ocean surface salinity to better understand the links between ocean circulation, the global cycling of freshwater and climate.
