| Mighty Hurricane Laura is moving quickly through the United States, and the ISS crew is chasing the storm – from space! Along with the astronauts, satellites from NASA, NOAA, and other space agencies are also studying the hurricane to keep disaster response experts and meteorologists informed of its progress.|
With sustained winds up to 150 mph moving quickly across the nation, this Category 4 hurricane is truly a force of nature. Red Canyon provides engineering support to Earth satellites such as GOES-R that help track these weather patterns and improve our own. You can find links to a few resources provided below. We deeply hope everyone affected is able to prepare, find shelter, and stay safe!
