NASA Sees High Thunderstorms In Tropical Cyclone Fobane
2014-02-12 13:27:27

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Cyclone Fobane was located southeast of Reunion Island in the southwest Indian Ocean when the TRMM satellite passed over and captured rainfall and cloud data on the storm. TRMM saw that despite Fobane weakening, there was still some punch left in a few of the thunderstorms within. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite passed over Fobane on February 11, 2014 at 0035 UTC. Fobane was very small but contained a few powerful...

WASP Gives NASA's Planetary Scientists New Observation Platform
2014-02-09 08:10:00

April Flowers for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online High-altitude balloons have long been used by scientists who study the Earth, the sun and the stars to gain a better view of their targets by carrying their telescopes far into the stratosphere. For planetary scientists, however, this doesn't work, as they need a highly stable, off-the-shelf type system that could accurately point their instruments and then track planetary targets as they move around in the solar system. Such a...
