Spacecraft separation was not planned until approximately an hour after liftoff.

Apple to miss holiday season with HomePod speaker
The rival smart speakers play music from Spotify, even though Google and Amazon have their own music streaming services. And at that the time, Apple had said it was planning to ship HomePod to the US, UK and Australia by December this year.

JPSS-1 will collect assorted data such as atmospheric observations of temperatures and water vapor information expected to help improve weather forecasts out to seven days, according to Mitch Goldberg, chief JPSS program scientist for NOAA.

"Emergency managers increasingly rely on our forecasts to make critical decisions and take appropriate action before a storm hits", NOAA National Weather Service director Louis W. Uccellini wrote in the statement.

One in particular is called the Visible Infrared Imager - Imaging Radiometer Suite, which in addition to weather forecasting provides environmental assessments, information on sea surface temperatures and ice breaking in the Arctic. "Such forecasts are impossible without quality robust global data that's provided from polar satellites, and JPSS-1 is joining that network of satellites that provides these observations that are the backbone of forecast process".
