How to Manufacture Your Own Spacecraft

NASA Goddard shares a step-by-step process for producing a fresh new satellite — learn how 'PACE' is constructed and will be used for studying Earth's atmosphere and ocean health.

“When you look down at the ocean, you can see phytoplankton there and for the first time, with PACE, the scientists will be able to see what type of phytoplankton there are from space,” said Gary Davis , mission systems engineer at Goddard for the PACE mission. “Hopefully this mission will be able to communicate the importance of ocean health and the health of plankton to the whole world.”
