After five years of NASA's original Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) launch failure, OCO-2 is finally ready for launch. The OCO-2 will get launched on Tuesday and will monitor atmospheric carbon and sources of the gas.
As many as 100,000 measurements of the gas will be taken on a daily basis at locations around the world. The observatory will prove beneficial as the human use of fossil fuels is growing at an alarming rate.
