Summary
In the United States alone, ten million Americans live in hurricane danger zones. But how do hurricanes work? And how can we predict their strength? A daring team of NASA scientists want to find out-and are using a repurposed Global Hawk drone to conduct hurricane science like never before. With stunning photos, detailed maps, and infographics, Amy Cherrix takes readers on a trip into the eye of the storm to discover the future of the hurricane forecast
