Summary
Examines the development of weather satellites that provide continuous real time weather observations and the improvements in forecasting that resulted. With the advent of satellites in the 1960s, scientists have been able to move closer to their goal of providing instant real-time weather observations and accurate forecasts based on complete coverage of global weather systems. Before the widespread use of satellites, the weather conditions over many remote areas and expanses of ocean were unknown, and our picture of how weather circulates around the planet was incomplete. Today we are able to understand how a weather system ten thousand miles away will ultimately affect us, thanks to these images from space
