Quotes

...Rajshekhar Sunderraman, chair of the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State. "Traditional approaches to dealing with data fail miserably with the volume of data being generated, and we need innovative algorithms and software tools to analyze the data and infer new knowledge in a timely manner. Even though this project specifically targets solar data, the methods and tools devised would be applicable to a wide range of other domains. We are excited to be part of the project and hope for important breakthroughs to be made."
"We took every single piece of data that we could find on the solar storm and put it together to see what was going on."
...belts," said Barry Mauk, Van Allen Probes project scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland. "They also have shown us new structures and features in this region of space, the existence of which we had never suspected. It has been a very illuminating two years, and we look forward to many more with these remarkable spacecraft." The Van Allen Probes are the second mission in NASA's Living With a Star (LWS) Program to explore aspects of the connected sun-Earth system that directly...
...they asked, adding that making sure that there is adequate congressional funding for communications improvements is a key task going forward. "I think that the level of scrutiny and use that our web based products receive these days is unparalleled. Were we prepared for this?"
