Grace-Fo satellites prepared for Acoustic Noise Test, Preparations for the acoustic noise test for the two GRACE-FO satellites

The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-on (GRACE-FO) mission is a partnership between NASA and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). GRACE-FO is a successor to the original GRACE mission, which began orbiting Earth on March 17, 2002. GRACE-FO will carry on the extremely successful work of its predecessor while testing a new technology designed to dramatically improve the already remarkable precision of its measurement system. The GRACE missions measure variations in gravity over Earth's surface, producing a new map of the gravity field every 30 days. Thus, GRACE shows how the planet's gravity differs not only from one location to another, but also from one period of time to another. Airbus Defence and Space (Friedrichshafen/Germany) is the industrial prime contractor to build the satellites

SpaceDataHighway - Start of Service

Airbus Defence and Space starts the initial service of its SpaceDataHighway. This represents a step change in the speed of space communications. Ultra-broadband laser communications and the geostationary orbit of the relay satellites will make data latency a thing of the past.Through laser communication, the SpaceDataHighway can transfer high-volume data from Earth observation satellites, airborne platforms, or even from the International Space Station at a data rate of 1.8 Gbps and can transmit up to 40 terabytes per day.;_LINE_TERMINATEDBe ready to enter the SpaceDataHighway the 28th of November 2016 #SpaceDataHighway;_LINE_TERMINATEDMore informations here : http://bit.ly/2fvwttP
