Flying Through Hurricane Matthew

Cool! This reminds me of my Navy days as an STG. Those dropsondes look a lot like sonobuoys, which measure the temperature vs depth in water to give SONAR ranges. Orions can drop those, too, so I would imagine it wasn’t hard to design a sensor that would work within the existing sonobuoy launcher (or vice-versa, whichever came first).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
