NASA will discuss its upcoming research into the formation of hurricanes during a media teleconference Thursday at 2 p.m. CDT. The Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes mission will study how hurricanes are created and why they can intensify rapidly. The mission involves three NASA research aircraft, including Global Hawk. GRIP will run from Aug. 15 to Sept. 25.
