"NASA is contracting with SpaceX for a $112 million launch of its Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite, which will conduct the first ever worldwide study of Earth's surface water. SWOT will be launched on one of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base in April 2021. The $112 million cost includes not just the launch but also unspecified support from other private companies to put the satellite into space." (11/27/16)
