A website created by JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) was made to provide more information on a new satellite that will be launched into space later this year. The first post on the site is an anime short film created by studio White Fox
. The purpose of the film is to raise awareness and explain the mission of the GPM/DPR satellite.
The satellite is a joint project between JAXA and America's NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and is planned to be launched from the Space Center at Tanegashima using a Japanese HII-A rocket. "GPM/DPR" stands for "Global Precipitation Measurement/Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar." The device will scan the entire Earth every 3 hours generating global precipitation maps.
