The Drag Side of the Moon

At PickleTech we thrill when two -apparently- separate projects end up connected in some way. And when the reason is related to Physics, writing about it becomes an imperative. Do you know what connects a Tour de France stage with the management of a constellation of satellites?

Aerodynamic drag heavily impacts both cycling and low Earth orbit satellites. Estimating drag with precision and integrating it on complex operational strategies are key to their success. Data Science is contributing to optimize such complex challenges with the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques.
