GPM weather observatory successfully launched

GPM weather observatory successfully launched: "The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory was launched last Thursday aboard a Japanese H-IIA rocket that blasted off from Tanegashima Space Center on Tanegashima Island in southern Japan. The satellite will help provide a more detailed picture of the Earth's precipitation to assist climate scientists and help improve forecasting of extreme weather events."
