The rain will transition over to snow as we head into mid to late morning across the area. We will see the chances for light accumulation in the valley areas with 1-3" possible on the ridge tops above 2000 feet. Slick spots are possible on untreated roads. While significant snow is not expected, we have issued a Severe Weather Alert Day to keep you informed on possible negative impacts to travel through Tuesday afternoon.
MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - Morehead State University scientists are hoping to build and fly a series of satellites on NASA missions similar to objects they build and launched into orbit last year.
Morehead State Space Center Director Ben Malphrus told The Independent the satellites would collect data scientists would use to produce the most precise measurement ever made of the diffuse X-ray background emanating from the early universe."
The satellite is the CXBN, one of the breadloaf-sized cube sats that are revolutionizing space missions, making space accessible to smaller universities and the private sector.
When the first satellite was launched in September 2012 as a secondary payload on a NASA?rocket, it marked the first launch and successful orbital deployment and operation of a satellite entirely built in Kentucky.
