After 17 years, NASA’s Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite has indicated it is at the end of its fuel supply. TRMM has advanced our understanding of rainfall, tropical cyclones and the occurrence of floods and droughts. As it slowly descends towards Earth in the next two to three years, it will continue to collect useful data.(Credit: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center #nasagoddard #earth #weather / NASA Goddard Space Flight Center)
