Description : ANGLAIS
Nov. 17, 2020.- Taranis satellite, storm observer, Spain’s first remote sensing satellite, - The mission of this satellite will be to observe "the hidden face" of thunderstorms. Beyond the lightning and thunder, a storm hides luminous and radiative phenomena, the knowledge of which is of interest to military aviation. - Taranis will observe the "Elves" and the "Sprites"
Small machine of 185 kg it must study the Transient Light events (TLE). For example, he will be responsible for observing the "Elves", the most common phenomenon which consists of a rapidly expanding halo of light located at an altitude of about a hundred kilometers, above the storm clouds.
The "Sprites" - much rarer - form a veritable luminous firework display in filamentary form that can be observed for a few milliseconds.
Taranis - god of the sky and the storm in Celtic Gallic mythology - will be the very first space mission entirely dedicated to the study of these phenomena discovered in the 1990s.
