NASA Sees Short Life Of Southern Indian Ocean's First Tropical Cyclone
2013-10-28 18:31:31

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The first tropical cyclone of the Southern Indian Ocean season lasted about one day. Tropical Cyclone 01S was born on Oct. 27 and by Oct. 28 had become a remnant low. The first tropical cyclone of the Southern Indian Ocean cyclone season formed on Oct. 27 near 13.1 south and 63.4 east, about 570 nautical miles northeast of Port Louis, Mauritus. It was moving to the west-southwest at 7 knots. Maximum sustained winds were near 35 knots. On Oct. 27,...

NASA Sees Hurricane Raymond Reborn For A Brief Time
2013-10-28 18:27:37

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Storm Raymond moved away from western Mexico and into warmer waters with less wind shear over the weekend of Oct. 26-27, where it strengthened into a hurricane again. NASA's Aqua satellite captured an eye-opening image of Raymond before it ran into strong wind shear. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Hurricane Raymond that showed its eye had re-developed...

WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA will host a live Google+ Hangout news conference on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 3 p.m. EDT about Operation IceBridge's upcoming airborne field campaign in Antarctica. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO) This is the first year IceBridge will operate directly from Antarctica, flying from McMurdo Station starting in mid-November instead of from southern Chile. This change will allow IceBridge researchers to...

NASA Sees Tropical Storm Francisco's Rainfall
2013-10-25 07:07:49

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's TRMM satellite flew above the center of Tropical Storm Francisco in the western North Pacific Ocean early on Oct. 24 and data was used to create a 3-D image of the storm's structure. Tropical Storm Francisco came into the view of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite at 0919 UTC/5:19 a.m. EDT. Francisco is somewhat close to Super-typhoon Lekima, also in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Lekima was located southeast of Tropical...

Super-typhoon Lekima Ready To Make The Curve
2013-10-24 14:38:39

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Super-typhoon Lekima is poised to "make the curve" in the northwestern Pacific Ocean today. The storm's track is expected to shift from a northwesterly direction, and curve to northeasterly direction because it has started encountering mid-latitude westerly winds and a trough. NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of Lekima just before it began its directional shift. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's...

NASA has awarded a bridge contract to AS and D Inc. of Greenbelt, Md., for continued multidisciplinary engineering and technical services until a follow-on contract is awarded at the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center, also in Greenbelt. Known as Multidisciplinary Engineering and Technical Services II Bridge (METS 2 Bridge), this is a cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract with an ordering value ranging from a minimum of $5 million to a maximum of $90...

Wind Shear's Effect On Tropical Storm Lorenzo Shown By NASA's TRMM Satellite
2013-10-23 14:10:08

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's TRMM satellite data provided forecasters at the National Hurricane Center with a good look at how wind shear is affecting Tropical Storm Lorenzo in the Atlantic Ocean. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) using data from NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite noted in the discussion on Oct. 23 at 5 a.m. EDT that the data from the TRMM satellite pass at 0247 UTC/10:47 p.m. EDT on Oct. 22 "nicely showed the separation of...

Super-typhoon Lekima Eyed By NASA In The Northwestern Pacific
2013-10-23 13:58:52

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's Terra satellite flew over Lekima after it became a super-typhoon in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and captured visible and infrared data on the storm. Early on Oct. 23 at 00:25 UTC/Oct. 22 at 8:25 p.m. EDT, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument that flies aboard NASA's Terra satellite was busy capturing data on Lekima. The MODIS image clearly showed Lekima's 20 nautical mile/23 mile/37 km-wide-eye with bands of...

Endeavour launched from Kennedy Space Center on December 2, 1993 at 4:27 AM EST and landed at Kennedy on December 13 at 12:25 AM EST. The shuttle orbited 163 times at an altitude of 321 nautical miles at an inclination of 28.45 degrees and travelled 4.4 million miles. The mission lasted 10 days, 19 hours, 58 minutes, and 37 seconds. This was the first mission to repair and maintain the Hubble Space Telescope. It involved the second longest spacewalk to date at nearly 8 hours. The final...
