• NASA’s high-resolution air pollution monitoring instrument TEMPO lifted atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
  • TEMPO will allow scientists to monitor air pollutants and their emission sources and air quality across greater North America on an hourly basis during daytime.
  • Situated in geostationary orbit 35,786 kilometers above the equator.
  • Among the pollutants tracked by TEMPO will be nitrogen dioxide, produced from the combustion of fossil fuels, formaldehyde and ozone.
  • It will be able to measure atmospheric pollution down to a spatial resolution of 10 square kilometers or neighborhood level.
