NASA | The Global Hawk Eyes for Science


Alarm Alarm Alarm Alarm Alarm [music] the global Park is a revolutionary
aircraft it can fly to 65,000 be twice as high as a
commercial airliner he will fly for over 30 hours and will
fly nearly 12,000 miles so it has enormous
range in torrents an altitude its
revolutionary for science. [music] the global arts a fantastic platform
because it expands our ability to sample the atmosphere it has a larger
range than any other aircraft it can carry a
very respectable payload close to a thousand pounds you can be operated remotely from a location like dried that allows
to reach remote regions like the Pacific on these thirty, up to 30 hour flights so they’re really two main goals of the
globe packed missions first is to demonstrate the Global Hawk for Earth Science and that means take it out on flight
paths that are appropriate for the airplane with the scientific payload and the second goal would be to use that
Simon payload to collect scientific data from regions in the atmosphere that only
the Global Hawk can reach The Global Hawk sweet instruments there’s 10 instruments from other NASA centers, from NOAA, from
universities they’ve been measuring gases that show
ozone depletion, they show little tiny particles they measure
were called Aerosols that influence the stratosphere so we’re collecting some
really nice information about ozone depletion we’re also
measuring gases their climate-related greenhouse
gases and we’re accumulating some very interesting information about these climate and ozone-depleting substances. The
Global Hawk a very powerful platform because it can go to remote regions of the earth and stay there for perhaps an extended
period of time so from NASA Dryden on the west coast to
the US we can range well out into the Pacific
well pass to Hawaii for example as well as going down to the equator and
up to mid and higher latitudes this is a capability that no manned aircraft and provide us

    I belive its Scott Hathers Satscape they are using on that monitor at 1:37
    there you go scott will that do ?

  2. @mallardhead Listening and watching to 1:54 – 2:24 explains all of that. They just have to collect enough data to determine how those substances effect the earth.

  3. @GoreTorn16 Effect earth now based on what standard? Ice bores/ sea floor bores are great for a small area of the surface up to 400K yrs ago. But what of any atmospheric records of then. They don't exist! There's nothing to compare it to. So again, how do they make these conclusions?

  4. i was disappointed because the global hawk was used for war duties but this make him look better i still prefer the ikahana though
