Check Out RapidScat

The Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, California, developed one of the signature experiments for the station, the ISS-RapidScat. The device is flying inside the trunk section of the Dragon and will be connected to the outside of the station’s Columbus module which will give it an unobstructed view of the Earth more than 200 miles below. From there it will study the ocean winds on Earth and track hurricanes and storms. You can read about ISS-RapidScat in depth hereĀ and find out five important things about it here.
