A new, astrological calendar is in the works that would allow the United States to avoid having to pay a $2.4 billion premium for its use of the International Space Station.
The plan is to use the Space Weather Prediction System to predict when the next storm or hurricane will strike the country, and then send a daily report about the storm and its impacts to a central office, such as NASA.
The data would then be transmitted to the United Nations to be used to decide on a response.
In theory, the plan could have a big impact on the US’s national debt, but that’s not how it is being used by the Trump administration.
“I think that the White House has decided that the most immediate need is to make sure that the Space weather forecasts are not used to increase the national debt,” said David L. Schilling, an analyst at the Brookings Institution and a former deputy chief of staff for the Commerce Department.
Trump, who has made the Spaceweather forecast a major campaign issue, has repeatedly insisted that the cost of using the space station was too high and that he didn’t want to pay for a new space station that was not going to be operational for several years.
The cost of a new satellite is expected to be about $400 million a year, with the rest going to other satellites that the United Nation wants to use in orbit, such in the United Kingdom, Russia and Japan.
That would be $5 billion a year over the next four years.
If the Trump Administration really wanted to save money, they could just do the space weather forecast themselves, said Paul Bales, a former senior adviser to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under President George W. Bush.
They would just have to look at the forecasts of the weather station, which are so accurate that they can predict what’s going to happen in the future, Bales said.
However, Schilling said that’s a “horrendous” argument for the White Houses decision to use space weather forecasts for its own purposes.
“The problem is that they’re just not going back and forth between the space and weather reports,” Schilling told Politico.
“They’re basically going to use one, and it will be totally inaccurate, because the satellite isn’t going to send out the next forecast.”
The new space weather prediction system is not new to the US.
During World War II, the National Weather Service and NASA had a common weather forecasting system called the Space Coordination System, which is based on a computer model of the Earth.
In the 1970s, however, NASA was buying up weather satellite imagery for use in the Weather Prediction Center, which has since been renamed the Space Forecast System.
NASA uses the Spacecom computer, which the Trump team is using.
After the first Space Weather forecast was sent to the Space Center, the space agency decided that it would need to update the forecast to include the changes made to the satellite during the Spacecraft Mission Control (SMC) mission, which occurred on Oct. 15, 2019.
That updated forecast, known as a “Space Weather Report,” included the SpaceCom-derived changes made by the satellite in the last 10 days, including the change that occurred on Sept. 25.
The updated forecast was used to determine when the SpaceWeather report was sent.
The Trump administration has yet to make a decision on whether to use that report, Schill said.
“I’m not sure that we should have a report sent in this space, and if we do, we should not have it for a year,” Schill told Politico in an interview.
“There’s no reason that they should have that report for 10 years.”
The new forecast has caused controversy for the Trump White House.
Some in Congress, who have argued for years that the forecast data should not be used by NASA to make weather predictions, have called on the Trump Administrations office to reconsider the decision.
NASA’s budget is $8.5 billion per year.
If the Trump administrations decision to send the Space Report was correct, that would mean the space center would spend $8 billion for every forecast, not including the cost to send it back.
That’s because the Space Prediction Center doesn’t have the resources to build a new weather satellite, which would require a costly new mission.
The administration has also said it won’t use the forecasts for forecasting the impact of hurricanes or tornadoes.
Schilling said it’s too early to know how much of a benefit the SpaceReport forecast would bring to the administration.
The Space Weather Service has been a popular tool for forecasting weather in the US for years, but its data is not used by other parts of government, such NASA or the National Geophysical Data Center, another component of the National Science Foundation.
Schilling also noted that the forecasts are available for the public to view online, but
