NASA Data corrected by British teenager, receives APPRECIATION
A 17-year-old Brtish teenager pointed out a major error in data that NASA collected from the International Space Station (ISS), report said. A-level student Miles Soloman was working on the TimPix project -- which lets school students in the Britain access data recorded by radiation detectors. Soloman found that radiation sensors on the ISS were recording false data and then emailed scientists at NASA. Soloman and his fellow students were given Timepix measurements in a giant pile of excel spreadsheets, where they analysed the radiation levels on the ISS.According to NASA, it was aware of the error, but believed it was only happening once or twice a year. However, Soloman had found it was actually happening multiple times a day.
