Measuring Earth’s winds from space
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at a new mission designed to measure winds on Earth from space.
The Aeolus mission will launch later this year and the information gathered will help scientists make better climate predictions and better our understanding of weather patterns.
The Aeolus satellite will measure winds specifically in the lower part of the atmosphere, an area which until now has offered little wind data.
