Using high-resolution satellite data, like from Suomi NPP and precision sky brightness measurements, this study produced the most accurate assessment yet of the global impact of light pollution.
Volcanic ash is a notorious hazard to the jet aircraft which frequent these skies on domestic and international routes. JPSS Satellites help protect against these threats.
NOAA’s JPSS-1 satellite is currently going through environmental testing. Environmental testing simulates the harsh environments the satellite may experience during launch and once in orbit.
