Interaction of Solar Wind and Earth Atmosphere Studied
Wallops Island VA (SPX) Nov 19, 2014
Northern Norway in December? It may not be your ideal spot to visit, but for NASA sounding rocket teams and university scientists, this is the ideal place to conduct experiments to increase the understanding of the interaction of the solar wind with Earth's upper atmosphere. The launch window opens November 19 at the Andoya Rocket Range for the Cusp Alfven and Plasma Electrodynamics Rocket (CAPER) and the Cusp-Region Experiment (C-REX) that will conduct studies of activities in the Earth's cusp, m ... read more
