Tiny Satellites Track Global Storms
...bytheNational Institute of aerospace Today's meteorologists have a plethora of ground based instruments to help forecast, the weather, but some new satellites no larger than a shoebox may help us see the big picture in great detail. This is innovation now. Although today's weather experiments provide an enormous amount of weather information, none provide a global view of what's happening inside. A storm measuring how water and air move in thunderstorms globally is essential for predicting severe weather. So NASA is testing a new type of weather satellite to fill the gap. Rain cube is a technology demonstration satellite that could provide a real time. Look inside storms, the satellite's antenna sends out Chirps or specialized radar signals that bounce off raindrops and send back a picture of what the inside of a storm looks like, but. Rain cube isn't meant to track storms, all alone, many of the tiny satellites could be inexpensively launched into orbit flying together. The rain cubes could relate updated information about storm movement and effectively predict amounts of rain. Snow, sleet and pale anywhere on the globe for innovation. Now. I'm Jennifer poet.

...bytheNational Institute of aerospace Prognostications from machines are helping astronomers make predictions about the stars. This is innovation now for years. The post office has used computers to direct mail to the correct zip code and more recently media services predict which television shows you might want to watch making recommendations just for you. This research is all part of a growing field of machine learning where computers actually, learn from large data sets and find patterns that humans might not otherwise see. Now, astronomers are enlisting. The help of machines to reveal the basic traits of stars telescopes around the world, and in the sky take thousands of images of stars each day, humans alone can't make sense of all that data. But a machine can quickly flip through an available stack of images identify patterns and make predictions about a stars properties. Including its size metal content when it was born and how it has changed over time and just like your spam filter program to get better as it filters, more and more emails applying. These advanced algorithms to astronomy will help us strana mors literally map what's written in the stars for innovation. Now.
