The Global Hawks are big, unmanned aircraft that are part of NASA’s five-year project to learn more about how hurricanes form. Called Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel — or HS3 — the craft fly out of NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island.
HS3’s lead scientist will explain how it all works, and a Global Hawk pilot will talk about what it’s like to remove fly over tropical cyclones.
Hangouts allow up to 10 people or groups to chat while thousands can watch live on Google+ or YouTube. NASA social media follows can submit questions on Google+ or Twitter in advance or during the event, using #askNASAHS3.
Before it begins, NASA will open a thread on its Facebook page for questions.
