Related:Another instrument it is carrying is the GLM or Geostationary Lightning Mapper that can monitor the discharge of lightning. Its purpose is to provide data for meteorologists so that they can forecast severe weather. This will naturally help us further in staying ahead against natural calamities as much possible, enhancing accuracy in predicting damaging weather formation. GOES-S will as well observe the nearest stellar neighbor of the earth using a pair of instruments aimed at the sun. These are Solar Ultraviolet Imager (SUVI) and Extreme Ultraviolet and X-Ray Irradiance Sensors (EXIS). There will be another pair of instruments to monitor conditions around the spacecraft itself. These are magnetometer (MAG) and Space Environment En-Situ Suite (SEISS). These have the purpose to provide critical data for safety of astronauts, the operation of satellites and power utilities of the earth. The western part of the USA, specifically Alaska and its subordinate regions will benefit via weather and wildfire forecasts, matching the similar scales of the eastern part of the country, by the NASA satellite launch GOES-S. Keep following this space to get more updates on earth’s science and aeronautics as they surface.
