So does this mean we’re to expect Zuul and Vince Clortho?’s right, both the Keymaster and the Gatekeeper might be coming soon.  It just depends on when NOAA’s GOES-R (get it?) makes its appearance.  As we all know, both Zuul and Vince Clortho will show, possibly in a refrigerator, before GOES-R.

This latest Satnews article gives some nice details on GOES-12’s retirement, and what typically happens to satellites in geosynchronous orbit when they outlive their usefulness.  GOES-R satellites are expected to eventually replace the rest of the GOES-##’s according to the text.

Just go and read the article, but I can promise you this:  there won’t be ANY Ghostbusters jokes on that website…and let’s hope this GOES-R fares a little better than the god in the movie.
