NASA announced the end of the RapidScat mission on the International Space Station after almost two years of successful operations.
Wednesday, 30 November 2016
On 19 August, a power distribution unit for the space station's Columbus module failed, resulting in a power loss to RapidScat.
Despite several attempts, it has not been possible to reactivate the instrument.
The near-real time RapidScat wind products (50 km - 2 hours latency, 50 km - 3 Hours Latency, 25 km - 2 hours latency, 25 km - 3 Hours Latency) from the OSI SAF have been unavailable since then and are now officially discontinued.
