Amazon Web Services To Feature NASA Earth Science Satellite Data
2013-11-12 18:24:30

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online NASA is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to bring Earth science satellite data to the cloud. The space agency said it would be making a large collection of climate and Earth science satellite data available to research and educational users through the AWS cloud. The system enhances research and educational opportunities for the US geoscience community by promoting community-driven research, innovation and collaboration....

ESA's Next Pair Of Galileo Satellites Undergo Crucial Testing
2013-11-07 07:46:58

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online At a technical center in the Netherlands, the European Space Agency's (ESA) next pair of Galileo satellites have been the focus of a busy fall season. The satellites are undergoing a continuing, full-scale campaign to ensure their readiness for space. The first of the pair of satellites is halfway through a five-week immersion in vacuum and temperature extremes. This "thermal-vacuum" testing mimics the conditions the satellites will...

Seeing In The Dark With Novel Infrared Remote Sensing System
2013-10-29 14:33:32

American Institute of Physics Thermal infrared (IR) energy is emitted from all things that have a temperature greater than absolute zero. Human eyes, primarily sensitive to shorter wavelength visible light, are unable to detect or differentiate between the longer-wavelength thermal IR "signatures" given off both by living beings and inanimate objects. While mechanical detection of IR radiation has been possible since Samuel Pierpont Langley invented the bolometer in 1880, devices that also...

Satellite -- A satellite is an object that orbits another object. With sufficient tangential velocity, the object does not collide with the primary object it orbits, but maintains a distance from that object as the rate at which it falls towards that object is similar to the rate that it travels away, thus the object orbits the primary object and becomes a satellite. In other words: gravitational force serves as the centripetal force needed to make the object circle the primary...
