NASA carbon-fiber weather gliders could save lives and cash
from New Atlas
The National Weather Service's network of sensors may soon welcome aboard a high-flying counterpart, in the form of a NASA-developed fixed-wing glider that zips through the sky collecting data. The Weather Hazard Alert and Awareness Technology Radiation Radiosonde (WHAATRR) Glider could function as an airborne science platform according to the team that developed it, and may even play a role in atmospheric research on Mars.
