  • Keeping an eye on Hurricane Dorian

  • The next crew headed to the International Space Station

  • And a better understanding of Sun-driven space weather … a few of the stories to tell you

  • aboutThis Week at NASA!

  • Cameras outside the International Space Station captured multiple views of Hurricane Dorian,

  • including this view from Sept. 1 as the massive storm sat over the northern Bahamas.

  • At the time the powerful Category 5 hurricane was producing the strongest winds in recorded

  • history for the northwestern Bahamaswith sustained winds of 180 miles per hour.

  • Our researchers estimate Dorian dumped more than 36 inches of rain in the area, which

  • contributed to catastrophic damageincluding widespread flooding, as indicated by the light

  • blue color in this NASA flood map, made with data from a European satellite.

  • Although Dorian was not as strong a storm as it approached the U.S., NOAA's National

  • Hurricane Center posted many warnings and watches as Dorian continued to move north

  • along the U.S. East Coast.

  • After Dorian passed Florida's Space Coast, an aerial survey of our Kennedy Space Center

  • found that, overall the center fared well.

  • While no flight hardware was damaged, a shoreline restoration project along the coast did sustain

  • significant erosion.

  • The International Space Station's next crewincluding our Jessica Meirgeared

  • up for its upcoming launch with activities in Star City and Moscow, Russia.

  • Meir and her crewmates, Oleg Skripochka of Roscosmos, and Spaceflight Participant Hazzaa

  • Ali Almansoori of the United Arab Emirates will do their final training in Kazakhstan

  • before their launch to the station on September 25.

  • We have selected three proposals to conduct nine-month-long concept studies of missions

  • that could help us better understand the dynamic space weather system near Earth that is driven

  • by the Sun.

  • The studies could help us predict and mitigate the effects of space weather on spacecraft

  • and astronauts, which is very important for our Artemis program, which looks to safely

  • send the first woman and the next man to the Moon by 2024.

  • Researchers at our Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., successfully completed in-flight

  • testing of technology that will enable pilots of our X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology aircraft

  • to safely maneuver the skies without a forward-facing window.

  • The technology uses a forward-facing camera and image processing software to create an

  • augmented reality view of the pilot's forward line-of-sight along with graphical flight

  • data overlays.

  • That's what's up this week @NASA
