China and Europe have teamed up to jointly test new technologies that can help satellites rise above the clouds and analyze storms.
ESA announced a decision to cooperate with the Chinese National Space Center to perform ground tests for two devices that will be placed in an orbit with a height of 36,000 km.
If testing is successful, then the next stage is a space mission. This is the first time Europe and China are working on testing together.
Modern satellite systems are not able to obtain information about the temperature mark and the level of humidity, which prevents the precise control of storms.
Typical threats for China are typhoons arriving every year.
