Description:

NASA's Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) mission uses NASA's Global Hawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) to study tropical storms and hurricanes. This nine-minute video describes the mission, reveals details about the Global Hawk aircraft, and offers a glimpse inside the command centers of both the ground-based pilots and the scientists who analyze satellite images to assist in flight navigation. The video concludes with information about getting students involved directly from the classroom through computer monitoring of the Global Hawk's flight patterns and participating in live chats with the ground-based pilots.
