Other technological advances also help crews contain wild fires: C 130s, the military cargo plane, have been refitted with side Nike Jordan Red Black mounted water cannons that shoot precise streams of flame retardant. A newly designed intake hose for helicopters can douse fires with 2,000 gallons of water slurped in 30 seconds from ponds, rivers and the ocean. Firefighters try to encircle the fire and cut it off from fuel sources to starve the fire while dousing it from the air with flame retardants. It is labor intensive, exhausting and often dangerous work. Last year, five firefighters were killed battling a Southern California mountain fire. "Yes, we have better tools, the fire engines are bigger, the crews are better trained and the aircraft are more modern. But we're dealing with Mother Nature, and she dances a mean boogie. "Thermal imaging is helpful, says Taylor, but he doubts it will be of much use in battling the rapidly moving wildfires sweeping across Southern California now. "It's valuable data where the weather is not too extreme, but when it gets into this situation now, it's worthless," he says.
with NASA. Those involved in the fire sciences, as the field is known, distinguish between strategic and tactical information. Satellites provide broad brush strategic information about the fires in a given area. But the satellites pass overhead only twice a day. That makes them of little value to firefighters battling fast moving blazes, like those currently burning in Southern California. Airplanes, and now drones, provide much more useful, real time information.
"In five minutes, the data won't be worth a damn. "Navy would one day retrieve the crew module portion of NASA's new Orion spacecraft when it splashes down in the Pacific after a deep space mission. "We have a 'crawl, walk, run' strategy," said Scott Wilson, a manager in NASA's Orion program. "We're taking the first steps in learning to walk here. "The Orion is the first spacecraft NASA has built in a generation to carry humans back into space for exploration, NASA says, and it's designed to take us farther than we've ever gone before.

"They produce daily maps for the battle plan," says Everett. "It's extremely useful information, and you can do this through the smoke, which is a big advantage," adds Compton Tucker, a senior Earth scientist Air Jordan Green Glow
is part of a four part, multi purpose, integrated structure. It's tucked beneath a tower like "launch abort" emergency escape system astronauts can activate during launch to pull their module to a safe landing. Beneath the crew module is a service module for in space propulsion, life support systems and cargo. And under that is a spacecraft adapter to connect the Orion to a massive heavy lift launcher.
