TROPICS is a NASA mission that seeks to better understand hurricane development, strength, and precipitation.
The TROPICS CubeSats will be launched into orbit by Rocket Lab's Electron rocket, increasing hurricane monitoring capabilities.
CubeSats are small, low-cost satellites that allow for efficient and cost-effective data collection for scientific study.
The TROPICS mission will give useful data to improve weather forecasting, allowing for better storm preparedness and response.
The TROPICS mission emphasizes the value of collaboration between private enterprises such as Rocket Lab and government agencies like as NASA.
The TROPICS mission and Rocket Lab's Electron rocket demonstrate the promise for breakthroughs in weather science and space exploration in the future.
