Deep Space Climate Observatory to provide ‘EPIC’ views of earth

7 enero 2015

NASA has contributed two Earth science instruments for NOAA’s space weather observing satellite called the Deep Space Climate Observatory or DSCOVR, set to launch in Jan., 2015. One of the instruments called EPIC or Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera will image the Earth in one picture, something that hasn’t been done before from a satellite. EPIC will also provide valuable atmospheric data.
