In January 2012, NASA has renamed its newest Earth-observing satellite, namely NPP (NPOESS Preparatory Project) launched on October 28, 2011, to Suomi NPP (National Polar-orbiting Partnership). This is in honor of the late Verner E. Suomi, a meteorologist at the University of Wisconsin, who is recognized widely as "the father of satellite meteorology." The announcement was made on January 24, 2012 at the annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society in New Orleans, Louisiana.
