Student finds error in NASA data
In physics class seventeen-year-old Miles Soloman was looking at radiation sensors on the International Space Station (ISS). He found that ISS sensors were recording negative data when there was no radiation present. This is impossible. So, he let NASA know. They told him that while it was aware of the error, its experts had thought the data blips appeared only once or twice a year. But the student informed them it was happening several times a day.
