NASA will now fly tempo into space, launch a new satellite next month ... will tell the level of pollution



International Desk:
The US space agency NASA is going to fly Tempo into space next month.  These are not tempos that transport people to cities and towns.  Rather, it is a satellite.  The full name of TEMPO is Tropospheric Emission Monitoring of Pollution Instrument.  It was previously said to be launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in early April.  But now it could be launched next month.
   TEMPO is equipped with special instruments that will pass over North America every hour during the day.  It will record data on air pollution levels in an area of ​​10 square kilometers each time.  Its range will be from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and from central Canada to Mexico City.  It's a large washing machine-sized device made by Ball Aerospace.  It will be launched with the Intelsat 40E satellite manufactured by Maxar.
   TEMPO's main task will be to create data on three major pollutants – the first being nitrogen dioxide, formaldehyde and ozone.  Nitrogen dioxide is a noxious gas that is released from fuel combustion.  This causes respiratory problems.  It causes asthma.  Formaldehyde is a byproduct of paints, glues and gasoline.  This can lead to problems like eye problems and cancer.  If the ozone level increased, the ultraviolet rays of the sun could be harmful to your skin.
