|1. It is expected to help the USA in better forecasting of hurricane,|
|2. Jason-3 satellite will examine the human-induced changes on the ocean.|
|3. It will not extend the time series of ocean surface topography measurement.|
|Which of the statement(s) given above is/are correct?|
A) Only 1

Correct Answer: D
Solution :[d] NASA launched Space X Falcon 9 Rocket with Jason-3 ocean-monitoring satellite. The rocket carried the ocean monitoring satellite Jason-3 on board and successfully inserted it in desired orbit. However, the rocket failed a return landing on a drone platform in the Pacifc ocean. This satellite will examine the topography of the ocean floor to help study effects of climate change or human-induced changes on the ocean. It will extend the time series of ocean surface topography measurement.
