NASA-JAXA's New Precipitation Satellite Sees First Atlantic Hurricane

Hey Space Placers!

1 of  NASA's 5 planned Earth Science missions for this year, the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory, observed the 1st Atlantic hurricane of the 2014 season, Arthur. These observations will help in understanding hurricanes and making better predictions.

This capability to observe these storms from space will prove invaluable, especially with the climate change that is ongoing now.

The International Space Station has been photographing super-typhoon Neoguri from LEO and the results are impressive to say the least. 

 Three NASA missions have been making observations of the monster storm from space.

Another example of what NASA does for all of the people of Earth……
