Airbus scientists hope to improve weather forecasting with launch of new satellite

Final preparations are being made for the launch of a Stevenage-built satellite that will help meteorologists further improve the accuracy of weather forecasts. Airbus on Gunnels Wood Road has created the 1.4 tonne wind sensing ‘Aeolus’ in conjunction with the European Space Agency. It’s the first of its kind capable of performing global wind-component-profile observation […]
