The short video, 'For Good Measure' explains why scientists turn to satellites to get a worldwide view of rainfall. Click here to view the full featured story. Video Text: We plan our lives around rain. We always want to know...04/15/2013 - 3:29pm
As anyone who has ever been caught in a sudden and unexpected downpour knows, gaps still exist in our knowledge about the behavior and movement of precipitation, clouds and storms. An upcoming satellite mission from NASA and the Japanese Space Agency...04/11/2013 - 3:59pm
The GPM Core Observatory completed thermal vacuum testing at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. on Jan. 16, 2013. After twelve days to carefully remove the testing equipment, stow the High Gain Antenna and GPM Microwave Imager, and...02/04/2013 - 3:06pm
This animation shows the launch and deployment of the GPM Core Observatory. GPM is scheduled to launch in 2014 on an H-IIA rocket in Japan.01/22/2013 - 6:56pm
On Tuesday Nov. 13, 2012, the GPM observatory moved from the clean room to the thermal vacuum chamber. The spacecraft, wrapped in protective blankets, made the short trip by crane across the testing facility where it was then lowered into the 40-foot...12/10/2012 - 12:18pm
