Aeolous is already revolutionizing weather prediction
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Aeolus, which was launched in August of 2018 to revolutionize weather predictions.
The Earth Explorer satellite carries an instrument that is made up of a powerful laser, large telescope, and a very sensitive receiver.
This technology will provide meteorologists with measurements that can help to improve weather forecasts.
After just a few months in orbit, Aeolus has already proven that it is capable of generating accurate global wind profile data from space.
