NOAA warns of risks from relying on aging space weather missions

Published

By


WASHINGTON — The head of NOAA’s space weather office used a recent hearing to caution that a failure of an aging spacecraft in the next few years could leave the agency “hurting a little bit” in its ability to monitor solar activity.

At a Feb. 12 hearing of the Senate Commerce Committee on “space missions of global importance,” Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), ranking member of the committee, asked if NOAA should accelerate plans for its Solar Weather Follow-On mission, a spacecraft scheduled for launch in 2024 to collect solar wind data and take images of the sun’s corona from the Earth-sun L-1 Lagrange point.

NOAA currently uses the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) and NASA’s Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft to collect solar wind data, and uses the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft to observe the solar corona, using those data to forecast solar storms that can affect satellites and terrestrial infrastructure such as power grids.

However, SOHO, launched in December 1995, is well past its design life. In addition, DSCOVR has been offline since June 2019 because of technical problems, forcing NOAA to depend solely on ACE, which launched in 1997.

William Murtagh, director of NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, said at the hearing that DSCOVR should return to service soon. “We had an issue with it, but fortunately it will be back in operations by the beginning of next month,” he said. NOAA said in September it expected DSCOVR to resume operations in the first quarter of 2020 after implementing a “software fix” to the spacecraft.

He added that NASA has assured NOAA that ACE should remain operational until about 2025. “So we’ve got two spacecraft up there now providing us this key information” on the solar wind, he said.

A bigger issue, though, is SOHO, for which there is no immediate replacement should it fail. “Our biggest concern is the SOHO spacecraft,” he said, citing its age. “It is a single-point failure to some degree.”

Murtagh said that NASA’s twin Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory, or STEREO, spacecraft could eventually serve as a backup. The two were launched in 2006 into orbit around the sun, going in different directions, and equipped with an instrument suite that includes a coronagraph. In a few years, the spacecraft will drift back towards the vicinity of the Earth. While one of the two spacecraft, STEREO-B, has been out of service since 2014, STEREO-A is still functioning and could fill in for SOHO if needed.

“We won’t be blind, but we’ll be hurting a little bit,” he said of a failure of SOHO.

He reiterated that point later in the hearing. “The observations that we rely on to provide alerts and warnings are critical,” he said. “Should we lose some of those key spacecraft that we talked about, I won’t say we’re blind, but we’re darn close. It will impact our ability to support this nation’s need for space weather services.”

Eventually, all those satellites will be replaced by the Solar Weather Follow-On mission, which will have a coronagraph and solar-wind instruments. NOAA also plans to place a coronagraph on the GOES-U geostationary orbit weather satellite, scheduled for launch in 2024.

Congress has pushed to speed up work on that mission, despite NOAA’s assurances about the availability of data from other spacecraft. NOAA sought about $25 million for the mission in its fiscal year 2020 budget request, but Congress appropriated $64 million. NOAA has yet to release its fiscal year 2021 budget request, more than a week after the White House published the overall federal government budget proposal.

Cantwell did not sound convinced by Murtagh’s argument that the Solar Weather Follow-On mission did not need to be accelerated. “Mark me down as somebody who wants to be more aggressive,” she said. “We should be as aggressive as we can possibly be.”

Virgin Galactic is Wall Street’s new favorite speculative stock: SPCE

Published

on

By


Virgin Galactic’s rally began two months ago but trading in the speculative space company has recently accelerated in a way that tops even the momentum behind Tesla.

Shares of Virgin Galactic rose as much as 15% in trading Wednesday from its previous close of $30.30, which was its highest ever finish. This follows a 21% jump on Friday and 5% surge on Tuesday, daily trading spikes that resemble the speculative run in Tesla two weeks ago.

The stock has more than tripled in the past three months, up 223% before Wednesday’s open.

Daily trading volume in Virgin Galactic has been pushing higher for the past week. Before Tuesday, an average day of trading saw 12 million Virgin Galactic shares change hands. But investors flooding into the space tourism company are pushing that average higher, with Friday seeing Virgin Galactic’s trading volume hit 45.6 million shares and Tuesday reaching 104.1 million shares.

Jon Najarian, co-founder of Market Rebellion and a CNBC contributor, put into context the increase in Virgin Galactic’s trading volume. He first began trading Virgin Galactic in December, saying there were about 12,500 call options on the stock per day. Najarian said that spiked to 38,000 calls per day in January — and then, last week, Virgin Galactic traded 175,000 calls per day. 

“That’s bats— crazy volume!” Najarian said. 

Virgin Galactic has been trading publicly only for a few months. The stock debuted on the NYSE in late October, taken public through a merger with Chamath Palihapitiya’s venture Social Capital Hedosophia.

Retail investors pouring in

CNBC’s Jim Cramer warned that Virgin Galactic’s rally “is what happens when too many people want a stock around the clock.”

“It can’t be stopped right now, and these things tend to end badly — but you try to tell someone that,” Cramer said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

Fintech company SoFi said Tuesday was “today by far the largest purchase day ever for the stock” on its platform, as it was also the most-traded stock on SoFi overall.

“Trading activity on [Virgin Galactic is] up 7x this year compared to 2019,” SoFi told CNBC.

SoFi’s Invest platform focuses on stocks and ETFs and is mostly used by millennials age 25 to 40.

TD Ameritrade said Virgin Galactic “was among the top names bought by retail investors” bought in January.

Likewise, Fidelity told CNBC that Virgin Galactic was bought more than any other stock on Tuesday — topping Apple, Tesla and others.

Although popular trading app Robinhood does not publicize its users’ holding, Robintrack — an unofficial tool that scrapes data from Robinhood — ranks Virgin Galactic as by far the stock with the biggest increase in holdings among users. According to the tool, Virgin Galactic is now the 33rd most widely held stock among Robinhood users overall.

How Virgin Galactic compares to Tesla

Virgin Galactic’s 162% jump since the beginning of the year tops Tesla’s dazzling climb of 105%. But, beyond the resemblance in the stocks’ gains, the companies also have similarities that help explain why both are such popular speculative plays for investors.

Both companies are bets on future technologies. Tesla is focused on electric vehicles and battery technologies, as well as the future of energy, while Virgin Galactic is developing a space tourism business that also hopes to develop hypersonic long-distance travel capabilities.

Both companies’ stocks trade on what it will earn in the future, rather than what they earn now. Tesla has reported just two consecutive profitable quarters, with its latest bringing in $7 billion in revenue, while Virgin Galactic in the third quarter reported just $800,000 in revenue generated by flying scientific research payloads and providing other services. Overall, Virgin Galactic recorded a net loss of $138.1 million for the first nine months of 2019.

“Fundamentally, it’s very difficult to value something that’s generating zero revenues. You’re supposed to look at projections 10 years from today. I don’t know how anyone can accurately predict that far in advance,” Strategic Wealth Partners’ Mark Tepper told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Tuesday.

Finally, both companies have billionaire backers in Elon Musk and Richard Branson, who each have histories of building companies.

The biggest difference between the two companies is likely in how Wall Street views each stock. Virgin Galactic is universally recommended by analysts but Tesla is widely disliked.

Virgin Galactic is scheduled to announced fourth-quarter results on Tuesday. The company is expected to provide updates to some closely watched metrics during its Q4 earnings call, like the demand for future space tourism customers.
