NASA launches small climate satellite to study earth’s poles

NASA successfully launched the first of a pair of small climate satellites on Saturday from the Rocket Lab's Launch Complex 1 in Mahia, New Zealand. The mission, dubbed PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment), aims to study heat emissions at the Earth's poles, shedding light on the intricate interplay between these regions and global climate change. The PREFIRE mission consists of two shoebox-sized CubeSats, each equipped with a sophisticated thermal infrared spectrometer ...
