This lovely picture is of the January 30 launch of a Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) from the Kennedy Space Center. This TDRS-K satellite is the first in a new generation of communications satellites that will further add to NASA's impressive communication fleet. These TDRS satellites have the important task of relaying information to and from space craft.
