Members of the media have been invited to NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center, Building 703, in Palmdale, California, for a behind-the-scenes tour and briefing on five new research campaigns.
The airborne campaigns will deploy across the US to investigate fundamental processes that affect human lives and the environment, from snowstorms along the east coast to the sinking coastline of the Mississippi River delta.
The five new NASA Earth Venture field campaigns begin their first year of field work from January to October 2020.
The tour is scheduled for next Wednesday, Australian time, and will give media an opportunity to tour NASA’s Palmdale hangar, view several aircraft and scientific equipment involved in the campaigns, and interview science team members and pilots.
NASA research aircraft on display include the ER-2, B-200, C-20, and SOFIA, NASA’s flying astronomical telescope, with media due to participate in a live NASA television briefing on the new campaigns.
