New weather satellite fully loaded


Recommended Posts

Geared up for fuelling

With liftoff now scheduled for 13 December, Europe’s first Meteosat Third Generation Imager (MTG-I1) satellite has been fuelled – a critical and extremely hazardous milestone on the road to launch. Once in geostationary orbit 36,000 km above the equator, this all-new weather satellite will provide state-of-the art observations of Earth’s atmosphere and realtime monitoring of lightning events, taking weather forecasting to the next level.

      Video: 00:00:23 Using radar images from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, the animation shows the A81 iceberg breaking away from the Brunt Ice Shelf on 25 January 2023. The new berg is estimated to be around 1550 sq km, which is around the size of Greater London, and is approximately 150 m thick. It calved when the crack known as Chasm-1 split northwards severing the west part of the ice shelf.
      The white square indicated the final breakpoint near the McDonald Ice Rumples.
      Routine monitoring from satellites offers unparalleled views of events happening in remote regions. The Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission carries radar, which can return images regardless of day or night and this allows us year-round viewing, which is especially important through the long, dark, austral winter months.

      Galileo’s capabilities have grown with the addition of a new High Accuracy Service, freely available worldwide to anyone with a suitably equipped receiver. Delivering horizontal accuracy down to 20 cm and vertical accuracy of 40 cm, the High Accuracy Service is enabled through an additional level of real-time positioning corrections, delivered through a new data stream within the existing Galileo signal.

      The Trinity Test Site in New Mexico was the location of the world's first nuclear explosion in July 1945. The test, code-named "Trinity," involved detonating a plutonium implosion device on a 100-foot tower. The explosion released 18.6 kilotons of power, instantly vaporizing the tower and turning the surrounding area into green glass. The Pentagon reportedly tried to keep the test quiet, but in recent years, information about it has become more widely known. 

      There are also reports of a separate incident involving an alleged UFO crash near the Trinity test site in 1945. On August 16, 1945, just a month after the Trinity nuclear test two boys, Jose Padilla and Reme Baca, heard a crash. They reportedly saw an avocado-shaped craft, inside of which were two mantis-like occupants, one of whom was in pain. The object reportedly struck a communications tower during its descent, and the two boys witnessed the US Army trying to remove it. 
      A third witness, bomber pilot Lt. Col William Brothy, was coming in for a landing at the nearby Alamogordo air base when air traffic controllers asked him to investigate the sudden loss of signal from a communications tower. Brothy’s report describes the damage to the tower, as well as the egg-shaped object and the two boys huddled around it 
      There have been reports of UFO sightings near nuclear sites and facilities throughout history, There does seem to be some sort of intersection between UFOs and humans nuclear technology. There were incidents that nuclear missiles shutting down unexpectedly at the same time UFOs appear above an Air Force base. 

      In the next video, former UK Ministry of Defense official Nick Pope discusses a bill that would require the Department of Defense to review historical documents related to the alleged UFO sighting near the Trinity test site in 1945 on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'
