Aerocene Float Predictor update

A new feature has been added to the Aerocene Float Predictor, a global forecasting system that utilises open meteorological data to predict the flight paths of Aerocene solar floating sculptures. Each imaginary Aerocene journey is an “air signature” that we can use to advocate the independence from fossil fuels.

It is now possible not only to plan your journey, but you can also save it into the Aerocene database of aerosolar signatures.

The Aerocene Float Predictor incorporates real-time information from 16-day forecasts of wind speeds at different altitudes. This aerosolar-float trajectory interface is a navigational tool used to plan journeys in the Aerocene epoch.

Based on a concept and long-term research by artist Tomás Saraceno, the Aerocene Float Predictor was developed by the Aerocene Foundation in collaboration with Lodovica Illari, Glenn Flierl, and Bill McKenna from the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), with further support from Imperial College London, Studio Tomás Saraceno, Radioamateur, and the UK High Altitude Society.
