Robert (Bob) Estes, MSPM student and NASA’s Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES) Deputy Project Manager, Flight Projects Directorate proudly announced that the CERES is working! Bob shared images of the first light observed by the CERES FM6 instrument on orbit. The CERES instrument was one of the five that launched 18 November 2017 aboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS-1). After reaching the polar orbit, the satellite became NOAA-20. Both CERES and JPSS-1 are perfect examples of applicability of project management discipline in scientific discoveries. Read more.
