A sea of critical real-time weather data floods into the satellite’s memory grid. A storm full of tornadoes is brewing! The sun is about to blast out a huge solar flare that could destroy satellites! To save lives and protect expensive instruments, the GOES-R weather satellite must not lose any of the data it is collecting. You can help! Bundle like data types together and store them safely before the data grid overflows.
In Satellite Insight, colored blocks falling into columns on a grid represent small pieces of data. When three or more same-colored blocks are touching, tap to select, then tap on the GOES-R satellite to store. Data blocks fall slowly at first, but speed up quickly. Each speed-up also brings a power-up tool you can use at any time to help clear the grid. But if the data piles up past the top of the grid, the game ends. Rack up as many points as you can!
