New weather satellite scheduled to be launched on Tuesday

The new satellite will also deliver critical observations during severe weather events like hurricanes, tornadoes and blizzards and is created to help improve forecasts three-to-seven days ahead of a severe weather event. Six instruments will collect information about the atmosphere, land, and oceans, measuring everything from temperature and moisture to ozone and vegetation.

Maue said that without data from polar satellites, "weather forecasts would noticeably suffer leading to more forecast busts, wayward hurricane tracks and more difficulty in preparing for severe weather". NOAA-20 and the polar-orbiting satellites, on the other hand, get a view of the entire planet and provide a large chunk of the data that are used in weather prediction models because they get a global view.

Jawan, militant killed in encounter in Kulgam
A guerilla war is going on between militants and Indian troops stationed in Indian-controlled Kashmir since 1989. There have been three gun-battles between armed forces and the militants in Kashmir in the last 12 hours.

The five next-generation instruments on JPSS will be a major upgrade from NOAA's legacy polar-orbiting satellites. Over longer timescales, this data will help improve our understanding of climate patterns that influence the weather, such as El Nino and La Nina.

Technical troubles scrubbed Tuesday's planned Delta II rocket launch of a new-generation of weather satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base minutes before blastoff.

Fire Breaks Out At Annapurna Studios In Hyderabad, No One Hurt
Four fire engines reached to the studio and diffused the fire but the set had already been burnt completely. The attractive house set that was erected for Manam movie has been used for various other movies.

NASA launch manager Omar Baez confirmed that up until 4 minutes before liftoff, the only issue launch controllers were tracking were a few boats in the boat exclusion area off the coast near Vandenberg Air Force Base, but then one parameter on the first stage also went out of limits. Once it's operational, it will be renamed NOAA-20. JPSS-1, which will be known as NOAA-20 when it reaches orbit, will join Suomi NPP, the joint NOAA-NASA weather satellite, giving the US the benefit of two, sophisticated polar satellites in the same orbit.
