Wikipedia

  1. FORTE

    The Fast On-orbit Rapid Recording of Transient Events (FORTE, occasionally stylized as FORTÉ) is a lightweight satellite which was launched at about 8:30 AM on August 29, 1997 into a circular 800-kilometer (500 mi) low Earth orbit which is inclined 70 degrees relative to the Earth's equator, using a Pegasus XL rocket. It was developed and launched by the Sandia National Laboratory in cooperation with Los Alamos National Laboratory, as a testbed for technologies applicable to U.S. nuclear detonation detection systems used to monitor compliance with arms control treaties, and later to study lightning from space. The project was sponsored by the United States Department of Energy, and cost about US$35 million. It utilizes optical sensors, RF sensors, and an "event classifier" in order to make observations, including monitoring Very High Frequency (VHF) lightning emissions in the ionosphere occurring from between 50 to 600 miles (80 to 966 km) above the surface of the Earth, and it will be a component of the VHF Global Lightning and Severe Storm Monitor (V-GLASS) system. Its primary mission is to record and analyze bursts of RF energy rising from the surface of the Earth. FORTE is 7-foot (2.1 m) tall, weighs 470-pound (210 kg), and is the first all-composite spacecraft, its framework being made entirely of graphite-reinforced epoxy. It consists of three decks with aluminum honeycomb cores, and composite facing to support the onboard instruments.

Examples of forte in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Nous ne vous énervez pas tout simplement parce que quelqu'un ment, triche et brise notre confiance. à mon avis, nous devenons en colère parce que nous ne pouvons pas faire confiance à cette personne (et les gens comme lui / elle) jamais. Ce est la violation et la perte de notre innocence qui nous blesse profondément à l'intérieur, pour une courte durée au moins. Pourtant, lorsque nous relever de cette chute bizarre, nous découvrons que nous sommes plus forts que jamais. Ce est vrai que ce qui ne nous tue pas nous rend souvent plus forte. Si étrange que cela puisse paraître, nous devrions être reconnaissants à cette personne tromper, qui nous a offert une occasion en or dans le déguisement - pour éliminer nos maillons les plus faibles et de nous renforcer au-delà de nos limites normales. Au Revoir!

  2. Jill Biden:

    He's been studying for weeks working up for today, he knows most of the leaders that will be here. Joe loves foreign policy. This is his forte.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Le respect de soi est le meilleur et le plus beau cadeau que vous donnez à vous-même. Le respect de soi-construit la plus forte maîtrise de soi, la dignité de soi, l'auto-discipline, et la plus haute estime de soi qui vous permet de ne jamais se contenter de moins, et, surtout, de se éloigner de quelque chose ou quelqu'un que vous sous-estime et friandises vous comme un second choix. Ne oubliez jamais que vous ne avez pas besoin de personne qui ne vous traite pas avec respect et dignité. Mener votre vie de la meilleure façon, alimenté avec le respect de soi; et le monde vous respectera.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Si vous êtes debout pour une raison, se dressent comme un arbre, forte, puissante et de grande taille. Si vous tombez, vous tomberez comme une graine qui germe et crée un nouvel arbre dans ce monde. Notre monde doit certainement beaucoup plus d'arbres que ce que nous avons aujourd'hui!

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Admettre votre erreur et de prendre la responsabilité de vos actions nécessite courage et l'humilité extraordinaire. Les gens interprètent mal souvent une responsabilité comme une faiblesse. Au contraire, la responsabilité démontre votre caractère ouvert d'esprit. Disant "désolé" nécessitent le niveau plus élevé de capacité intellectuelle. Seules les personnes forte d'esprit et bien équilibrés peuvent le faire sans effort. Toujours fier tout en prenant la responsabilité de vos actions - parce que ce la seule partie de votre personnage qui vous différencier du reste aussi remarquable et extraordinaire.
