Catching aerosols in a CATS eye
Description: Quick looks by a special CATS-eye attached to the International Space Station will help scientists catalog and track particles in Earth's atmosphere and act as a pathfinder for a new satellite planned for 2021. NASA will be doing operational Earth science that's new, looking at aerosols, pollution and clouds and real-time inputs to global climate models. CATS will also help show NASA how to do low-cost, fast-turnaround payloads on the station. [Source: NASA]
