Microbiological contamination can be attenuated and controlled but never eliminated. Tests on ground and in space have shown that humid areas and wet systems are the most prone to biocontamination.
Today, we can see all the layers in the atmosphere. We can analyse them for temperature, pressure, and gas concentrations. We can detect changes that are the origin of storms, and we can provide advance warning of the kind extreme weather that climate change appears to be generating more frequently. Here's how we do it.
In the near future a warning system operating via the Galileo satellite positioning system will be able to give you real-time alerts. That, in a nutshell, is the purpose of a new European project dubbed GRALLE [Galileo-based Reliable Automatic Low-Latency Emergency Warning Service]. The
The BepiColombo MPO’s payload comprises eleven instruments, including ISA (Italian Spring Accelerometer). We asked Maurizio Balasini (Science Equipment Program Manager at Thales Alenia Space) to explain this project.
The BepiColombo MPO’s payload comprises eleven instruments, including MORE (Mercury Orbiter Radio-Science Experiment). We asked Lorenzo Simone (Radio-Communication Products and TT&C Manager at Thales Alenia Space) to describe this experiment.
BepiColombo probe will reveal the mysteries of the smallest and least explored planet in the Solar System
