ЦитатаArgentina launches rocket to conduct atmospheric research[/size]

English.news.cn   2011-07-12 12:39:57

BUENOS AIRES, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Argentina successfully launched a rocket Monday after several failed attempts, a local government said in a statement.

The rocket Gradicom II was launched at the Chamical Air Base in northern La Rioja province.

The solid fuel-powered rocket was aimed to test-fly a prototype of two-stage rocket, which has a 120-second flight in the outer space, to conduct experiments with its systems and subsystems onboard.

The rocket was 7,686 millimeters long and weighs 933 kilograms and was completely developed by Argentine scientists and technicians.

The Gradicom II was launched to implement a new rocket program for civil and military use. It will set a "new stage for aerospace investigation" in Argentina, according to the statement.

"This is a historic day for the people of La Rioja and, fundamentally, for Argentina," Governor Luis Beder said at the launching ceremony.[/size]

FreeFlyer Olav Zipser with Interorbital's SR145 rocket.

IOS PR — World-renowned skydiver/daredevil Olav Zipser has chosen Mojave rocket manufacturer Interorbital Systems as the launch provider for his attempt to break Joe Kittinger's 1960 high-altitude jump record.

Zipser will forego the previous balloon-lift method used by the current record-holder, and instead will jump from an IOS SR 145 rocket. The launcher will propel Olav to an altitude of over 40 kilometers (about 25 miles)—higher than any manned balloon can possibly go—where he will eject from the launch vehicle and FreeFly back towards Earth in what he intends to be the longest, fastest, and highest skydive in history: his FreeFly Astronaut Project.

"This initial record attempt will be the first of a whole program, culminating with a dive from above the Karman line (100km), from a real space altitude. This is not a stunt. This is a research mission," Zipser stated. "I created the sport of FreeFlying and have gathered a great deal of important data, but more work is required. That's why committing to five rocket launches with IOS; these FreeFly events will happen at increasingly higher altitudes. This scientific data will be gathered to develop a safe return method that will benefit the entire aerospace industry—I can even see this as a new extreme sport with unlimited potential."

Olav leaves in two weeks for Russia, where he will attend the MAKS Air Show and begin a stay at Star City, for training and collaboration on the development of a supersonic spacesuit that can be used as an economical rescue/return alternative for astronauts and space tourists.

Цитата41.092 GO / Rosanova launched successfully from WFF at 7:58 am on 7/21/2011. This was the first mission that I have been assigned to (I am a mechanical engineer working for a contractor for NASA at WFF) as the payload mechanical engineer from the mission initiation through mission closeout to launch from Wallops! I've had one other from White Sands (WSMR) and another that I wasn't on the entire mission from WFF.

The vehicle was a Mk. 12 Terrier - Improved Orion.

The payload was a student experiment carrier designed to be parachute recovered from the ocean surface.

I can provide details if anyone is interested.

ЦитатаИран откладывает отправку примата в космос[/size]
(16:58) 03.10.2011

// CyberSecurity.ru // - Иранское государственное телевидение сегодня сообщило, что планы страны по отправке в космос собственными силами примата отложены на неопределенное время. Хамид Фазели, глава Космического управления Ирана, говорит, что техническая сторона проекта для отправки обезьяны в космос готова, но пока не готовы ученые и подопытные животные. "Как только они будут готовы, мы анонсируем полет", - сказал он.

 Фазели ранее заявлял, что ракета-носитель Кавошгар-5 с 285-килограммовой капсулой, где будет находиться обезьяна, будет запущена в августе на околоземную орбиту высотой 120 км. Сейчас в Иране говорят, что этот старт не состоялся и пока не предоставляют данных о том, когда он мог бы быть. Напомним, что в середине марта этого года Иран запустил ракету Кавошгар-4 с прототипом капсулы на орбиту. Старт был успешным.

 В марте этого года президент Ирана Махмуд Ахмадинежад также заявлял, что до марта 2012 года его страна выведет на орбиту 4 собственных спутника для выполнения разных задач.

 В 2010 году иранские специалисты при помощи ракеты-носителя Кавошгар-3 выводили на орбиту капсулу с крысами, черепахами и червями. Иранские ученые исследовали показатели жизнедеятельности животных. Впервые собственный иранский спутник был выведен на орбиту в 2009 году. К 2020 году страна надеется собственными силами провести пилотируемый полет с участием человека.[/size]

ЦитатаAFP: 'Iran Failed With Space Monkey Launch: Report'

Paris, Oct 12 -- Iran acknowledged as a failure Wednesday its attempt to send a live monkey into space last month -- touted as its first step towards launching a man into space.

"The Kavoshgar-5 rocket carrying a capsule with a live animal (a monkey) was launched during Shahrivar," an Iranian calendar month spanning August 23 to September 22, Deputy Science Minister Mohammad Mehdinejad-Nouri was quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency.

"However, the launch was not publicised as all of its anticipated objectives were not accomplished," Mehdinejad-Nouri told reporters.

He said the launch of a live animal into space was "strategic, and a priority," and expressed hope that future launches would attain more of the objectives set.

On October 3, Iran indefinitely postponed plans to send a live monkey into space, without giving any reasons.

"One cannot give a set date for this project and as soon as our nation's scientists announce the readiness (of the project) it will be announced," said Hamid Fazeli, head of Iran's Space Organisation.

The project envisaged launching a capsule with life support using the Kavoshgar-5 rocket to an altitude of 120 kilometres (75 miles) for a 20-minute sub-orbital flight.

The project was unveiled in February by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

At the time, Fazeli touted the launch of a large animal as the first step towards sending a man into space, which Tehran says is scheduled for 2020.

In mid-March, Iran announced the successful launch of an earlier version of the rocket, Kavoshgar-4, carrying a test capsule designed to house the monkey.

Iran has already sent small animals into space -- a rat, turtles and worms -- aboard a capsule carried by its Kavoshgar-3 rocket in 2010.

The Islamic republic, which first put a satellite into orbit in 2009, has outlined an ambitious space programme amid Western concerns the rocket technology may be linked to developing ballistic missiles that could deliver nuclear warheads.

Tehran has repeatedly denied that its nuclear and scientific programmes mask military ambitions.

The CHAMPS mission (Charge and Mass of Meteoric Smoke Particles) is set to investigate the number, density, charge, and mass distribution of meteoritic smoke particles.

These particles are believed to play an important role in the creation of noctilucent clouds (NLC).

Two sounding rockets will be launched; one around local noon and one around local midnight. The primary instrument used is the forward facing Mesospheric Aerosol Sampling Spectrometer, which has been flown on past missions.

The launch vehicles will be using Terrier Mk12 as first stage and Improved Orion for second stage. The expected apogee will be around 130 kilometers.

Around six minutes of microgravity
The TEXUS programme started in 1977 and is carried out at Esrange Space Center jointly by DLR, EADS Astrium and SSC.

The project

The TEXUS project is a sounding rocket program with the primary aim to investigate the properties and behaviour of materials, chemicals and biological substances in a microgravity environment. The TEXUS program gives around six minutes of microgravity.
The TEXUS programme started in 1977 and is carried out at the Esrange Space Center jointly by DLR and EADS Astrium. SSC is responsible for the launch operations. The TEXUS campaigns are sometimes financed by ESA or jointly financed by DLR and ESA.

TEXUS 48

The rocket vehicle Skylark 7 was used very successfully for the first 25 years until the motor was no longer available. The Brazilian motor VSB-30 has been used for the TEXUS programme since 2005 and will be used to launch the TEXUS 48 payload to around 270 km altitude.
More information will be added later.[/size]

ЦитатаEurope prepares new technologies for future launchers[/size]
   
(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/21500.jpg) (http://www.esa.int/images/DSC_0347s.jpg)

29 November 2011
ESA and the DLR German Space Center fired a Texus rocket 263 km into space on 27 November to test a new way of handling propellants on Europe's future rockets.
 
Texus 48 lifted off at 10:10 GMT (11:10 CET) from the Esrange Space Centre near Kiruna in northern Sweden on its 13-minute flight.

During the six minutes of weightlessness – mimicking the different stages of a full spaceflight – two new devices were tested for handling super-cold liquid hydrogen and oxygen propellants and then recovered for analysis.

Building on over 30 years of Texus missions, flight 48 was the first to demonstrate a new technology for future launchers.

DLR procured the rocket for this flight, which was performed under ESA's Cryogenic Upper Stage Technologies (CUST) project as part of the Future Launchers Preparatory Programme (FLPP).

Texus 48 preparations

Improved upper stage
 
ESA is working on a restartable cryogenic upper stage to improve Europe's launchers.

Liquids naturally float around in weightlessness but to ensure engine ignition after a long coast in low-gravity, propellant must be held ready at the tank's outlet using 'capillary' forces – the same force that helps paper towels soak up water.

Although this has already been mastered for launchers and satellites that use storable liquids, higher-performance cryogenic fluids are more difficult to handle.

On Texus 48, liquid nitrogen represented the cryogenic propellants to ease cost and safety constraints, and simplify the thermal design.

Росгидромет провел успешные испытания метеорологической ракеты МР-30[/size]

В Росгидромете успешно проведены летные испытания ракетного метеорологического комплекса МР-30 нового поколения с уникальными возможностями, существенно превышающими возможности метеорологической ракеты МР-20 (разработка конца прошлого столетия) по высоте полета и массе полезной измерительной аппаратуры.
                На испытательном полигоне Капустин Яр состоялись первые пуски метеорологических ракет МР-30. Старт и полет ракет пошел нормально, телеметрическая аппаратура передала полезную информацию о режимах полета ракеты и состоянии окружающей среды. Высота подъема метеорологической ракеты МР-30 составила 304 км при массе полезного груза (измерительная аппаратура и исследовательское оборудование) около 150 кг.
                После завершения серии опытных (исследовательских) испытаний, ракета МР-30 будет использоваться в системе Росгидромета для оперативного мониторинга состоянии верхней атмосферы на регулярной основе. Данные будут поступать в Росгидромет в режиме online.
                Организация регулярных пусков ракет в разных географических районах России даст возможность оценивать физические свойства верхней атмосферы и моделировать ее динамические характеристики.[/size]

S-520-26 launch result[/size]

JAXA launched the sounding rocket S-520-26 at 5:51 a.m. on January 12, 2012 (Japan Standard Time) from the Uchinoura Space Center. The vertical angle at the launch was 72.5 degrees. The S-520-26 was designated to clarify the combining process of the neutral atmosphere and plasma in the thermosphere.
The rocket flew smoothly, and opened its top part (the nose fairing) at 56 seconds after liftoff to start observations at 58 seconds. When it reached its maximum altitude of 298 km at 278 seconds, the lithium emission system was ignited to release lithium vapor to be dropped into the south eastern ocean of Uchinoura.
One of the onboard devices (the ion mass energy analyzer) did not perform observations successfully, but other devices, including an impedance probe, Langumuir probe, beacon transmitter, electromagnetic measurement device, and solar sensor, worked properly throughout the ascending and descending of the rocket. Reddish clouds due to lithium gas released from the rocket were seen for about 30 minutes from the ground observation points in Uchinoura, Shukumo, and Muroto. The acquired data this time will be analyzed in detail.[/size]

S-310-40 launch result[/size]

JAXA launched the sounding rocket S-310-40 at 11:48 p.m. on Dec. 19, 2011 (Japan Standard time) from the Uchinoura Space Center. The vertical angle at the launch was 76 degrees. The S-310-40 was designated to analyze radio wave propagation in the mid-latitude ionosphere during the night.
The flight and operation of the onboard devices were all normal, and its top part (the nose fairing) opened at the preordain timing of 60 seconds after liftoff, reached its highest altitude of 180 km at 210 seconds, then dropped onto the south eastern ocean of Uchinoura after completing its observation missions.
All onboard devices worked properly throughout the ascending and descending, and, at about 80 seconds, the high electron density area was observed at an altitude of around 103 km. It means that the rocket passed through the expected high density plasma area.
We are currently analyzing acquired data for more details. [/size]

ЦитатаSuccessful launch from spaceport Saturday[/size]
Sun-News report
Posted:   01/31/2012 11:59:03 PM MST

UPHAM, NM - A "STIG-A" rocket designed and built by Armadillo Aerospace launched successfully Saturday from Spaceport America's vertical launch complex. The research and development test flight was a non-public, unpublished event at the request of Armadillo Aerospace, as the company is testing proprietary advanced launch technologies.

Preliminary data indicates the rocket reached its projected altitude well in excess of the prior flight record of 137,000 feet and potentially as high as 250,000 feet. The STIG-A's recovery system did not function properly after reaching its projected altitude, however the rocket was successfully retrieved after a hard landing within the designated Spaceport America mission recovery zone.

This was the third test of the Armadillo "STIG A" reusable sub-orbital rocket technology to launch at Spaceport America. The last successful "STIG-A" was launched at the spaceport on Dec. 4, 2011, and this is the first time that the exact same vehicle has been launched for a second time.

Saturday's launch was the 14th from the Spaceport America vertical launch complex since 2006 and marks the fourth Armadillo Aerospace launch from the spaceport. Armadillo Aerospace has additional plans to launch from Spaceport America this year.[/size]

13 February 2012
Five experiments on a Maser rocket were launched from northern Sweden today. Faster than most people take a coffee break, Maser-12 travelled 250 km upwards, provided six precious minutes of microgravity, and landed safely back on Earth.
 
 Launched at 09:30 GMT on 13 February, it took only 45 seconds for the 'sounding rocket' to leave the atmosphere. Once it ran out of propellant, the mission had only just begun for the scientists watching on the ground.  

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/22740.jpg) (http://www.esa.int/images/xrmon-julgranar.jpg)    
Metal crystals

They had around six minutes to run their experiments and collect data during the weightlessness.

 On this mission, Maser felt the heat: one experiment used a small furnace to cook a metal sample to 700°C.

 At this temperature, the mixture of aluminium and copper turned liquid before it was frozen inside a cooling chamber to solidify into crystal clusters. An X-ray camera captured this dramatic experiment for analysis.
 
 
Maser-12 also featured experiments in molecular biology. The weightless behaviour of human immune-cells was compared with that of their counterparts on the ground. Another experiment looked at how blood transports cells.

 By observing how cells behave in microgravity, scientists gain a better understanding of how they work on Earth.

 Lastly, a liquid was observed to help understand boiling and heat transfer.

Maser-12   

Parachutes released automatically on Maser's trip down, guaranteeing a soft landing for the payload module.

 But there is only so much you can research from a distance, so the search and rescue service at Sweden's Esrange returned the experiments to the scientists for more detailed analysis.

 In the vast wilderness of northern Sweden, it helps that a satnav device comes as standard on a Maser. The retrieval team pinpointed the landing site and the experiments were returned by helicopter within an hour of touchdown.
 
Conducting research in microgravity is an important task for ESA. The information from the superheated metal experiment, for example, will bring us closer to creating lighter materials for use in cars or as artificial bones.

 The wilderness around Esrange means that rockets can descend with no danger of causing harm. Despite its remote location, the town of Kiruna is only 45 km away, providing the support needed for a launch site.[/size]

ЦитатаUNH Scientists Launch NASA Rocket into Aurora[/size]
Source: University of New Hampshire
Posted Monday, February 20, 2012

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/22914.jpg)
 With the full sky shimmering in green aurora, Saturday night (Feb. 18, 2012) a team of scientists, including space physicist Marc Lessard and graduate students from the University of New Hampshire's Space Science Center, launched an instrument-laden, two-stage sounding rocket from the Poker Flat Research Range in Fairbanks, Alaska. The precision measurements from the rocket's instruments will shed new light on the physical processes that create the northern lights and further our understanding of the complex Sun-Earth connection.

 Funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling in the Alfven resonator (MICA) mission sent a 40-foot Terrier-Black Brant rocket arcing through aurora 186 miles above Earth. The rocket sent a stream of real-time data back before landing some 200 miles downrange shortly after the launch.

 Instruments onboard, including those built at UNH, sampled electric and magnetic fields as well as charged particles in Earth's upper atmosphere (ionosphere) that get sloshed back and forth by a specific form of electromagnetic energy known as Alfven waves. These waves are thought to be a key driver of "discrete" aurora -- the typical, well-defined band of shimmering lights about six miles thick and stretching east to west from horizon to horizon.

 The mission involves collaborators from Cornell University, Dartmouth College, the Southwest Research Institute, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the University of Oslo.

 According to Lessard, an associate professor at the UNH Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) and department of physics, the Alfven resonator is a structure in the ionosphere that acts like a guitar string when "plucked" by energy delivered by the solar wind to Earth's magnetosphere high above.

 "The ionosphere, some 62 miles up, is one end of the guitar string and there's another structure over a thousand miles up in space that is the other end of the string. When it gets plucked by incoming energy we can get a fundamental frequency and other 'harmonics' along the background magnetic field sitting above the ionosphere," Lessard says.

 The Alfven resonator is a narrow, confined area of space -- a channel that is perhaps several hundreds of miles tall but only six miles wide. It is hypothesized that energy from the Sun accelerates a beam of electrons producing aurora and also increasing the overall electrical conductivity within the channel. Understanding how the ionosphere participates in providing the downward current is a critical component of understanding magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling.

 "The process turns on an auroral arc and then these waves develop on both sides of the resonator moving up and down. That's the theory and it appears to be valid, but there's never been any really good measurement of the process in action. That's what MICA is all about," Lessard says.

 MICA will provide insight into these wave-driven aurora specifically, but Lessard notes there are other types of aurora that are initiated by different processes and these, too, were investigated at ground-based stations during the MICA launch by scientists, including Allison Jaynes and Ian Cohen, both Ph.D. students working with Lessard in the Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Research Laboratory at EOS.

 UNH has a rich history of sounding rocket development and launches dating back to the early 1960s. As Lessard notes, rocket work is ideal training ground for graduate students, as it was for him at UNH, because, unlike satellite missions, rocket missions generally offer "soup to nuts" involvement from design, construction, launch, and data analysis. Rockets also offer relatively quick and inexpensive access to space compared to satellite missions.

 As for the significance of continued investigation into auroral processes, Lessard notes, "It's all about understanding how the energy of the solar wind gets coupled to Earth's magnetic field and eventually gets dumped into the our upper atmosphere."[/size]

НАСА в марте запустит пять ракет сразу для зондирования атмосферы
ЦитатаМОСКВА, 5 мар - РИА Новости. НАСА планирует во второй половине марта устроить на восточном побережье США настоящий "ракетный фейерверк" - одновременный запуск пяти геофизических ракет, с помощью которых ученые намерены изучить высокоскоростные потоки воздуха в верхних слоях атмосферы, говорится в сообщении на сайте аэрокосмического агентства.

Запуски в рамках проекта ATREX (Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment) планируется провести в интервале с 14 марта по 4 апреля с испытательного центра на острове Уоллопс (штат Виргиния).

Ученые намерены запустить пять геофизических ракет типа Terrier трех разных модификаций, оснащенных специальными устройствами для создания хорошо заметных белых дымовых "хвостов". Движение дымовых следов в атмосфере позволят ученым следить за движениями воздуха на большой высоте. Две из пяти ракет, кроме того, несут приборы для измерения температуры и давления.

Высотными струйными течениями называют извивающиеся потоки очень сильных ветров на большой высоте. Существуют несколько типов струйных течений, которые располагаются на разных высотах. Так, течения на высоте от семи до 16 километров могут использовать летчики, чтобы сэкономить топливо.

Ракеты будут зондировать течения, находящиеся на самой границе космоса - на высоте около 95 километров. Скорость их достигает 300 - 480 километров в час, существенное влияние на них оказывают электрические токи в ионосфере.

ЦитатаПять ракет НАСА для изучения "космического ветра" успешно стартовали
ЦитатаМОСКВА, 27 мар - РИА Новости. Пять геофизических ракет НАСА, предназначенные для исследования высокоскоростных потоков воздуха на высоте 100 километров - на самой границе космоса, были успешно запущены с площадки испытательного центра НАСА на острове Уоллопс (штат Виргиния), сообщает американское аэрокосмическое агентство.

В рамках проекта ATREX (Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment) использовали пять геофизических ракет типа Terrier трех разных модификаций с интервалами в 80 секунд.

На высоте около 80 километров они начнут высвобождать специальный реагент - триметилалюминий, который светится, вступая в реакцию с кислородом. Продукты реакции - оксид алюминия, углекислый газ и водяной пар - безвредны.

Наблюдения за яркими следами ракет позволят ученым понять, как двигаются воздушные потоки на больших высотах. За "хвостами" будут наблюдать камеры, установленные в Северной Каролине и Нью-Джерси.

377th Air Base Wing Public Affairs

KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. — The SpaceLoft-6 sounding rocket will launch April 5, 2012, at Spaceport America, in Upham, N.M., with seven payloads, crucial for future Operationally Responsive Space missions, demonstrating its dependability and resilience during a 13-minute, 70-mile-high trek.

The ORS director explained the mission's significance.

"One of the ways we prove space-based range technologies of tracking the rocket through flight, knowing where it is at all times in case the flight has to be terminated due to trajectory issues, is to get multiple flights to validate that the systems work in flight. Orbital flights are rare and costly, so one of the ways we are getting that flight heritage is by flying these technologies on small sounding rockets, which is much more inexpensive and easier," said Dr. Peter Wegner.

ORS has contracted with UP Aerospace Inc. in Denver to employ its "SpaceLoft XL" rocket for the fourth time, but the launch vehicle's sixth flight on April 5 will mark the first time it will carry strictly Department of Defense-manifested payloads. Like the other three collaborations between ORS and UP Aerospace, the SL-6 mission involves a standard six-month contract-to-launch time frame and uniform integration processes for rapid, responsive and cost-efficient means to evaluate potential space hardware.

"The upcoming flight, SL-6, is going to demonstrate a number of the key technologies ORS is developing. One of the most important is the Global Positioning Metric Tracking System, also known as the "GPS Beacon," designed by Florida Tech, which we hope will record the position of the rocket all the way through its flight. We will also be demonstrating another GPS receiver, the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, developed by the Federal Aviation Administration and the New Mexico Space Grant Consortium, which will independently obtain GPS data and transfer it through the telemetry string to the ground," Wegner said.

"The ORS-constructed Low-Cost Camera Demonstrator and NASA Ames Research Center's 'DroidSat,' built off of Android phone technology, will allow us to record separation events on the rocket. This is important to us because the ORS-3 mission scheduled for next year has 17 different payloads that will separate off that rocket during its trajectory," he said.

Two other ORS-provided payloads, the Hard Mount and Isolated Data Logger Experiments, will measure environmental conditions, such as vibration encountered by hardware during flight and recovery.

Finally, the University of Texas at Austin's Inertial Measurement Unit trial, using commercial, off-the-shelf technology, will acquire data from liftoff through re-entry.

"This suborbital launch allows us to explore the kind of approaches we would take for payload integration testing and flight for other missions," said Steven Buckley, ORS launch director for the SL-6 mission. "It's a great opportunity for us. It's quick and efficient, as well as allows us to do a lot of things in a less-costly environment before we go into a mission that might cost double-digit million dollars.

After reaching its near-space zenith, the SL-6 rocket will separate during its traverse back to Earth, and the seven trials, housed in two different compartments, will land about 33 miles from the liftoff site in the White Sands Missile Range.

Project staff will recover the reusable payloads, as well as retrieve and review acquired data from the brief suborbital trip.

"The goal of ORS is to be able to go from call-up to launch of a space system in a matter of days. We know the warfighters deployed around the world need access to imagery and communications capacity that many times can only be provided by space systems," Wegner said.

"Our job is to figure out how to get those systems up there — launched and delivered, placed on orbit, checked out and providing those capabilities to the warfighters. All of these technology demonstrations on the SL-6 mission are leading us to that end point."[/size]

Spaceport America, NM (NMSA PR) – New Mexico Spaceport Authority (NMSA) officials announced the tenth launch from Spaceport America by UP Aerospace of Denver, Colorado. The liftoff of the sub-orbital sounding rocket took place from Spaceport America's vertical launch complex at approximately 8:18 a.m. (MST), within the dedicated, five-hour launch window. The rocket reached its sub-orbital altitude of 73 miles or 385,640 feet (117 km), accomplishing a new Spaceport America altitude record.

The launch was a non-public, unpublished event at the request of UP Aerospace, Inc. The primary payloads were Department of Defense (DoD) experiments. Additional payloads were carried for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the University of Texas and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

"This successful sub-orbital flight marks our tenth flight from Spaceport America, and we are excited to be delivering payloads for the DoD and other clients like the FAA and the University of Texas," said Jerry Larson, president of UP Aerospace, Inc.

"UP Aerospace has now been successfully operating from Spaceport America for over five years, and we look forward to hosting many more of their launches as we move forward. During Phase Two of spaceport construction, which is now underway, we are in the process of expanding and improving our Vertical Launch Complex to enhance service to valued customers like Up Aerospace," said NMSA Executive Director Christine Anderson.

All of the payloads aboard the rocket were scientific and engineering experiments. The primary customer for the launch was the DoD Operationally Responsive Space Office. More information about their payloads can be found at http://www.afmc.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123296138. Another payload was designed, built, tested, integrated, and operated by a team of undergraduate students at the University of Texas, and is also part of the DoD Operationally Responsive Space Office payload program. The experiment was designed to compare the performance of various micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) accelerometers to assess their suitability for use as support instruments in future payloads.

Another payload was flown in conjunction with the FAA Center of Excellence for Commercial Space Transportation, for which New Mexico State University is the administrative lead institution. This payload further tested the FAA's Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system for possible future use in management of airspace involved in space operations.

This most recent launch represents the expanding demand for launch services at Spaceport America, the nation's first purpose-built commercial spaceport. "This is our second launch this year at the spaceport, and we are extremely pleased to support our regular launch customers like UP Aerospace and Armadillo Aerospace as they conduct their sub-orbital launches from Spaceport America. We also look forward to hosting future NASA-funded 'Flight Opportunities' suborbital research launches coming up later this year. Spaceport America continues to set the precedent for safe, efficient, effective service for commercial spaceflight customers," said NMSA Executive Director Christine Anderson. This UP Aerospace launch marks the fifteenth vertical launch overall from the Spaceport America Vertical Launch Complex.

A Black Brant IX sounding rocket was launch from White Sands at 19:30 UT. The flight's primary purpose was to provide an underflight calibration for the EUV Variability Experiment (EVE) instrument onboard the SDO satellite studying the sun (NASA 36.286, PI Tom Woods).

Based on the quicklook realtime data, all of the rocket EVE instrument channels appear to have made excellent solar EUV irradiance measurements. The two new soft X-ray spectrometers appear to have worked too. Detailed data analysis will be done to further analyze the quality of the rocket data and to produce a solar EUV irradiance reference spectrum that then can be used to calibrate the satellite SDO EVE and other solar EUV instruments.

Cameras onboard captured spectacular footage of the trip into space and back (see video).

DLR Launches SHEFEX II Experimental Re-entry Vehicle

BERLIN (DLR PR) – After a 10-minute flight, the sharp-edged SHEFEX II spacecraft landed safely west of Spitsbergen. Researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) launched the seven-ton and roughly 13-metre-long rocket and its payload from the Andøya Rocket Range in Norway at 21:18 CEST on 22 June 2012. As it re-entered the atmosphere, SHEFEX withstood temperatures exceeding 2500 degrees Celsius and sent measurement data from more than 300 sensors to a ground station.
"The SHEFEX II flight takes us one step further in the road to developing a space vehicle built like a space capsule but offering the control and flight options of the Space Shuttle much more cost-effectively," says project manager Hendrik Weihs.
 Knowledge of atmospheric re-entry
 
DLR has been working on the SHEFEX programme for 10 years, developing a technology in which a spacecraft can re-enter the atmosphere and land without suffering damage. SHEFEX is angular and sharp-edged; its structure consists of planar surfaces, which are easier to manufacture and are thus less expensive than the usual rounded shapes. The sharp edges are also aerodynamically advantageous. DLR researchers have developed various thermal protection systems to control the high temperatures that the edges are subjected to during re-entry.
The SHEFEX I spacecraft, launched on 27 October 2005, enabled researchers to collect data during flight for the first time. That flight lasted 20 seconds and the craft re-entered at a speed of Mach seven. SHEFEX II reached a speed of 11,000 kilometres per hour – roughly 11 times the speed of sound – as it re-entered the atmosphere. It reached an altitude of approximately 180 kilometres.
Six DLR institutes involved in the project
The SHEFEX project is a collaboration between six DLR institutes.
The DLR Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology carried out numerous wind tunnel tests, computed the flow field at re-entry and equipped the rocket with sensors for measuring temperature, pressure and thermal stress.
The DLR Institute for Structures and Design built the spacecraft and was responsible for designing and producing the ceramic thermal protection systems; in one of these systems, nitrogen flows through a porous tile, cooling the craft during re-entry.
At the heart of the canard control system, developed by researchers at the DLR Institute of Flight Systems in Braunschweig, are control surfaces – the canards – on the front section of the research vehicle, which can be used to actively control the vehicle.
The Institute of Materials Research manufactured the ceramic tiles and the Institute of Space Systems developed a navigation platform for determining the location of the spacecraft during the flight.
DLR's MoRaBa mobile rocket base operated the two-stage launch vehicle, controlled the spacecraft and received the data sent by SHEFEX during the flight.
 On the way to developing a space plane
 
A salvage ship and an aircraft are on their way to the landing site to retrieve the spacecraft.  If the recovery is successful, researchers will receive a large amount of additional data.
"The flight of SHEFEX II is a step towards developing a spacecraft that withstands higher temperatures while travelling faster and for a longer duration," says Weihs. More than 300 sensors measured temperature and pressure, among other things, during the flight. "We have a wealth of data, which will be used for years to come."
SHEFEX III could be launched in 2016; it will be more like a space plane and will fly through the atmosphere for about 15 minutes. The objective of this research is to allow for experiments in microgravity that last for a number of days and then return to Earth.

SUMI Sounding Rocket Mission Launches Successfully
07.05.12

Sounding Rocket Mission to Observe Magnetic Fields on the Sun    
07.02.12

Цитата(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/25742.jpg)

On July 5, NASA will launch a mission called the Solar Ultraviolet Magnetograph Investigation or SUMI, to study the intricate, constantly changing magnetic fields on the sun in a hard-to-observe area of the sun's low atmosphere called the chromosphere.

Magnetic fields, and the intense magnetic energy they help marshal, lie at the heart of how the sun can create huge explosions of light such as solar flares and eruptions of particles such as coronal mass ejections (CMEs). While there are already instruments – both on the ground and flying in space – that can measure these fields, each is constrained to observe the fields on a particular layer of the sun's surface or atmosphere. Moreover, none of them can see the layer SUMI will observe.

"What's novel with this instrument is that it observes ultraviolet light, when all the others look at infrared or visible light," says Jonathan Cirtain, a solar scientist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. and the principal investigator for SUMI. "Those wavelengths of light correspond to the lowest levels in the sun's atmosphere, but SUMI will look at locations higher in the chromosphere."

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/25743.jpg) (http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/462977main_sun_layers_full.jpg)

This higher layer of the chromosphere is known as the transition region – because the chromosphere transitions here into the part of the sun's atmosphere called the corona -- and it is a region that is dominated by the magnetic fields and in which solar material heats up dramatically forming the corona and the base of the solar wind. Understanding the structure of the magnetic fields in this region will then allow us to understand how the corona is heated and how the solar wind is formed. It is also an area believed to be where flare accelerated particles originate, so understanding the processes at play in the transition region can help with models to predict such eruptions on the sun.

To measure magnetic fields in the chromosphere, SUMI will observe the ultraviolet (UV) light emitted from two types of atoms on the sun, Magnesium 2 and Carbon 4. Through established methods of measuring how the light is affected as it travels through the magnetic environment of the solar atmosphere towards Earth, scientists can measure the original strength and direction of the magnetic fields, thus creating a three-dimensional magnetic map of the region.

This trip for SUMI is largely a test flight to make sure the instrument works and to assess possible improvements. The instrument flew once before in July 2010 but experienced a much higher G-force than expected, which broke screws holding the main mirror in place so it could not gather accurate data. The team has now reinforced the mirror.

"With the knowledge we get from a successful SUMI mission, we can go on to build space-based instrumentation that will help us understand the processes that form flares and CME's and help us predict space weather," says Cirtain.

SUMI will launch from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico on a Black Brant rocket. The flight will last about eight minutes total.

HI-C Sounding Rocket Mission Has Finest Mirrors Ever Made
07.05.12

On July 11, NASA scientists will launch into space the highest resolution solar telescope ever to observe the solar corona, the million degree outer solar atmosphere. The instrument, called HI-C for High Resolution Coronal Imager, will fly aboard a Black Brant sounding rocket to be launched from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. The mission will have just 620 seconds for its flight, spending about half of that time high enough that Earth's atmosphere will not block ultraviolet rays from the sun. By looking at a specific range of UV light, HI-C scientists hope to observe fundamental structures on the sun, as narrow as 100 miles across.

"Other instruments in space can't resolve things that small, but they do suggest – after detailed computer analysis of the amount of light in any given pixel – that structures in the sun's atmosphere are about 100 miles across," says Jonathan Cirtain, a solar scientist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. who is the project scientist for HI-C. "And we also have theories about the shapes of structures in the atmosphere, or corona, that expect that size. HI-C will be the first chance we have to see them."

The spatial resolution on HI-C is some five times more detailed than the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) instrument on the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), that can resolve structures down to 600 miles and currently sends back some of our most stunning and scientifically useful images of the sun. Of course, AIA can see the entire sun at this resolution, while HI-C will focus on an area just one-sixth the width of the sun or 135,000 miles across. Also, AIA observes the sun in ten different wavelengths, while HI-C will observe just one: 193 Angstroms. This wavelength of UV light corresponds to material in the sun at temperatures of 1.5 million Kelvin and that wavelength is typically used to observe material in the corona.

During its ten-minute journey, HI-C will focus on the center of the sun, where a large sunspot is predicted to be – a prediction based on what the sun looked like 27 days previously, since it takes 27 days for the sun to complete a full rotation.

"We will start acquiring data at 69 seconds after launch, at a rate of roughly an image a second," says Cirtain. "We will be able to look through a secondary H-alpha telescope on the instrument in real time and re-point the main telescope as needed."

In addition to seeing the finest structures yet seen in the sun's corona, the launch of HI-C will serve as a test bed for this high-resolution telescope. Often one improves telescope resolution simply by building bigger mirrors, but this is not possible when constraining a telescope to the size of a sounding rocket, or even a long-term satellite. So HI-C's mirror is only about nine and a half inches across, no bigger than that of AIA. However, the HI-C mirrors, made by a team at Marshall, are some of the finest ever made, says Cirtain. If one could see the surface at an atomic level, it would show no greater valleys or peaks than two atoms in either direction.

"So it's super smooth," says Cirtain.

In addition, the team created a longer focal length – that is, they increased the distance the light travels from its primary mirror to its secondary mirror, another trick to improve resolution – by creating a precise inner maze for the light to travel from mirror to mirror, rather than a simple, shorter straight line.

NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is leading the international effort for Hi-C. Key partners include the University of Alabama at Huntsville, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, University of Central Lancashire in Lancashire, England, and the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

NASA Hypersonic Inflatable Tech Test Set For Virginia Launch July 21

ЦитатаWALLOPS ISLAND, Va. -- NASA Space Technology Program researchers will launch and deploy a large inflatable heat shield aboard a rocket travelling at hypersonic speeds this weekend during a technology demonstration test from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va.

NASA has four consecutive days of launch opportunities for the agency's Inflatable Re-entry Vehicle Experiment (IRVE-3), starting July 21, with the liftoff window from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. EDT each day.

The test is designed to demonstrate lightweight, yet strong, inflatable structures that could become practical tools for exploration of other worlds or as a way to return items safely to Earth from the International Space Station. During this technology demonstration test flight, NASA's IRVE-3 payload will try to re-enter Earth's atmosphere at hypersonic speeds -- Mach 5, or 3,800 mph to 7,600 mph.

"As we investigate new ways to bring cargo back to Earth from the International Space Station and innovative ways to land larger payloads safely on Mars, it's clear we need to invest in new technologies that will enable these goals," said Michael Gazarik, director of NASA's Space Technology Program. "IRVE-3 is precisely the sort of cross-cutting technology NASA's Space Technology Program should mature to make these future NASA and commercial space endeavors possible."

The IRVE-3 experiment will fly aboard a three-stage Black Brant XI launch vehicle for its suborbital flight. The payload and the heat shield, which looks like a large, uninflated cone of inner tubes, will be packed inside the rocket's 22-inch-diameter nose cone. About six minutes after launch, the rocket will climb to an altitude of about 280 miles over the Atlantic Ocean.

At that point, the 680-pound IRVE-3 will separate from the rocket. An inflation system similar to air tanks used by scuba divers will pump nitrogen gas into the IRVE-3 aeroshell until it becomes almost 10 feet in diameter. Instruments on board, including pressure sensors and heat flux gauges, as well as cameras, will provide data to engineers on the ground of how well the inflated heat shield performs during the force and heat of entry into Earth's atmosphere.

After its flight, IRVE-3 will fall into the Atlantic Ocean about 350 miles down range from Wallops. From launch to splash down, the flight is expected to take approximately 20 minutes.

"We originally came up with this concept because we'd like to be able to land more mass and access higher altitudes on Mars," said Neil Cheatwood, IRVE-3 principal investigator at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. "To do so you need more drag. We're seeking to maximize the drag area of the entry system. We want to make it as big as we can. The limitation with current technology has been the launch vehicle diameter."

Cheatwood and a team of NASA engineers and technicians have spent the last three years addressing the technical challenges of materials withstanding the heat created by atmospheric entry and preparing for the IRVE-3 flight. The team has studied designs, assessed materials in laboratories and wind tunnels, and subjected hardware to thermal and pressure loads beyond what the inflatable spacecraft technology should face during flight.

This test is a follow on to the successful IRVE-2, which showed an inflatable heat shield could survive intact after coming through Earth's atmosphere. IRVE-3 is the same size as IRVE-2, but has a heavier payload and will be subjected to a much higher reentry heat.

IRVE-3 is part of the Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (HIAD) Project within the Game Changing Development Program, part of NASA's Space Technology Program. Langley developed and manages the IRVE-3 and HIAD projects.

Journalists interested in attending the IRVE-3 launch at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility should contact Wallops Public Affairs Officer Keith Koehler at 757-824-1579 or keith.a.koehler@nasa.gov to arrange for media accreditation.

NASA TV will air the IRVE-3 launch live and stream it on the Web at: http://www.nasa.gov/ntv

Degradation Free Spectrometers (DFS) Sounding Rocket
ЦитатаThe July 24, 2012 Degradation Free Spectrometers (DFS) sounding rocket mission's ultimate objective is to significantly advance the state of the art in short wavelength observing solar spectrometers to permit more detailed investigation and understanding of the physics, and hence behavior, of our dynamic sun. Such spectrometers must be capable of high cadence measurements of the highly variable Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) solar flux and have minimal degradation over multi-year time scales while observing the sun 24/7, in order to improve previous state of the art instruments such as the still active SEM instrument on the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft launched in December of 1995.

The present flight will carry two newly developed spectrometers which meet the observational challenge and will be proven flight ready on the present mission and are discussed below. This is also a calibration flight. The mission carries a clone of the SOHO Solar Extreme Ultraviolet Monitor (SEM) which is calibrated at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, both before and after flight, to provide a calibration check on the on-orbit SEM. This on-orbit SOHO instrument is observing the sun from the La Grange point along the Earth-Sun line where the solar gravitational pull on the spacecraft is equal and opposite to the gravitational pull of the Earth. This position is about 1% of the distance from the Earth to the sun, or about one million miles from Earth, well outside the Earth's atmosphere and also outside the Earth's magnetic field. The current sounding rocket payload also carries rare gas ionization cells which integrate the solar flux over much of the EUV spectral range to provide independent absolute solar flux data, which will help to validate the underflight calibration data.

Launch is currently scheduled for July 24 1:11 p.m. MDT at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

Armadillo Aerospace Granted FAA Launch License

By Debra Werner

 SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Armadillo Aerospace plans to conduct the first flight of its new reusable suborbital rocket in late August under a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) license awarded July 26. George Nield, FAA associate administrator for space transportation, awarded a two-year commercial operator launch license to Neil Milburn, Armadillo's vice president of program management, at the NewSpace conference here.

 During the first flight of the Suborbital Transport with Inertial Guidance (STIG) B rocket, Armadillo plans to carry two research payloads above 100 kilometers to provide the experiments with 2.5 to three minutes in microgravity, Milburn said. The launch is expected to occur Aug. 25 or Aug. 26.

 The payloads are being provided by Indiana's Purdue University and Germany's Vega Space, which is providing a payload built by the German Technical University Braunschweig.

 Heath, Texas-based Armadillo intends to use the August flight from New Mexico's Spaceport America to demonstrate the capability of the STIG B rocket to potential customers and to qualify for NASA's Flight Opportunities Program, Milburn said. The STIG B flight will be the first licensed flight from Spaceport America, Nield said. However, Armadillo conducted four test flights under an FAA license waiver available for small rockets, Milburn said.

 NASA has selected seven companies to fly technology payloads to suborbital space as part of its Flight Opportunities Program. In addition to Armadillo Aerospace, the participants are: Near Space Corp., Tillamook, Ore.; Masten Space Systems, Mojave, Calif.; Up Aerospace Inc., Highlands Ranch, Colo.; Virgin Galactic, Las Cruces, N.M.; Whittinghill Aerospace, Camarillo, Calif.; and XCOR Aerospace, Mojave, Calif.

The launch of a Terrier-Lynx suborbital sounding rocket for the Department of Defense, from Wallops Island, Va., was postponed Saturday night because of inclement weather, NASA said in a statement. The rocket is using NASA's launch range on Wallops Island.

The agency has rescheduled the launch for Tuesday between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. EDT. The rocket may be visible to residents in the mid-Atlantic region once it is launched. NASA provided no further details on the mission objective.

"This launch will not be shown live on the Internet, nor will launch status updates be provided once the countdown begins," the space agency said. "The NASA Visitor Center will not be open for viewing the launch."

The Terrier-Lynx is the second rocket launch postponed this week at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility.

On Thursday, NASA had to delay the flight test of a Talos-Terrier-Oriole suborbital rocket due to technical issues. During testing, a problem was discovered in the payload that would have interfered with transmission of data during flight, the space agency said.

This will be the first flight of the Talos-Terrier-Oriole rocket, which is being developed to support high altitude space science research. A new launch date has not yet been determined for the mission.

RockSat-X launches; next launch Sept. 22
09.21.12
 
RockSat-X launches from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Va., Sept. 21.WALLOPS ISLAND, VA – NASA successfully launched four university experiments this morning on a Terrier-Improved Malemute suborbital sounding rocket from the agency's launch range at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

Launched at 7:16:30 a.m. EDT, the rocket lofted the experiments to an altitude of 95.4 miles. The experiments have been recovered from the Atlantic Ocean and they will be delivered to the university teams this afternoon at Wallops.

The launch was part of the RockSat-X educational project, which is designed to provide students hands-on experience in designing, fabricating, testing and conducting experiments for space flight. The project is a joint effort between NASA and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

The participating schools for this year's RockSat-X launch are from Baylor University in Waco, Texas; University of Colorado at Boulder; the University of Puerto Rico; and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in Blacksburg.

The University of Puerto Rico flew a mass spectrometer to conduct an analysis of atmospheric particles and pressure. Virginia Tech and Baylor universities teamed up to measure nitric oxide and atmospheric dust. The University of Colorado at Boulder is testing a device to assist in de-orbiting small spacecraft and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium flew seven cameras to capture all the action in high definition.

The next launch from the Wallops Flight Facility is scheduled between 7 and 10 a.m. EDT, Saturday, September 22.

This will be the first flight of the NASA Talos-Terrier-Oriole which is being developed, using motors that currently exist in the sounding rocket fleet, to support high altitude space science research.

The 3-stage, 65-foot tall vehicle is projected to lift its 1,664 pound payload to approximately 176 miles above the Earth. After a 10 minute flight, the payload is expected land in the Atlantic Ocean about 300 miles off the Wallops Island coast. The payload will not be recovered.

The Talos-Terrier-Oriole launch may be visible to observers on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, the three lower counties on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and southern Delaware.

The NASA Visitor Center at the Wallops Flight Facility will open at 6 a.m. on launch day for public viewing.

The mission will be available live on Ustream beginning at 6 a.m. on launch day at:

ЦитатаMAPHEUS-3: Flight-testing furnaces in microgravity

26 November 2012

There are very few ways of conducting experiments without the influence of Earth's gravity. One of these platforms became available on 25 November 2012, when a rocket was launched from the Swedish Esrange Space Center in Kiruna. The high-altitude sounding rocket MAPHEUS-3 (Materialphysikalische Experimente unter Schwerelosigkeit, Material Physics Experiments under Microgravity Conditions) of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) carried four experiments that were subjected to three and a half minutes of microgravity conditions during the flight. Among other things, the experiments involved melting metal samples in furnaces. The solidified samples were recovered on 26 November 2012 with the help of a snowmobile.

 "If we conduct these experiments on Earth, lift forces are exerted on the molten metals," explains Andreas Meyer from the DLR Institute of Material Physics in Space. "When we conduct experiments in microgravity, we can overcome these and observe physical processes without any interference." The small furnaces began heating the aluminium- rich alloys for the ATLAS diffusion experiment before the rocket was launched. Eighty seconds after MAPHEUS-3 lifted off, the various liquefied components mixed in microgravity. "This is a process about which we still know very little." The 'demixing' of molten metals was also a subject of study during the MAPHEUS-3 campaign. With the DEMIX experiment, scientists investigated the behaviour of copper-cobalt alloys during the melting process. "With the results of the MAPHEUS-3 flight, we can revise the existing models for this process and adjust them accordingly," states Meyer. "This demixing process is employed in industry – and so it is also of interest to this sector to test the current models."

 Fundamental research with a video camera

 For the MEGraMa experiment, researchers from the DLR Institute of Material Physics in Space filmed the impact behaviour of particles with a diameter of less than one millimetre. Four magnets accelerated the spherules in a controlled manner during the flight; in the meantime, a video camera recorded how the spherules lose energy as they collide with one another. "With this, we investigate the behaviour of granular gases," emphasises Institute Director Meyer. "This process is not yet fully understood."

 To prepare for the next flight campaign – MAPHEUS-4 – the rocket also carried a newly developed furnace that was subjected to microgravity conditions. Measuring just 40 by 40 by 20 millimetres, it will melt six samples during a flight scheduled for next year. "The smaller the furnace, the lower the amount of energy needed to heat it up." One advantage of this new furnace is that it is 'transparent' to X-rays, which enables the direct study of the changes in composition taking place in the interior of the liquefied metal samples.

 Recovered by a snowmobile

 The launch was performed by staff from DLR's MObile ROcket BAse (MORABA). "We are, to some extent, responsible for MAPHEUS' 'flight ticket'. In addition to the launch itself, this includes the provision of the launcher and rocket engines, which are developed in-house, as well as the overall integration of the rocket," explains DLR engineer Markus Pinzer. Microgravity was achieved 80 seconds after lift-off at an altitude of 100 kilometres; the rocket reached a maximum altitude of 140 kilometres. After the capsule was returned to Earth by parachute, a team quickly located it, with the experiments on board, and were able to recover it one day after its launch using a snowmobile. "The flight was very challenging, both scientifically and technologically," emphasised Project Manager Martin Siegl from the DLR Institute of Space Systems. "Complex development work on the experiments, a variety of tests and an intensive preparation phase all culminated in those few minutes of flight." Now it is time to evaluate the acquired data and analyse the resolidified metal samples.

ЦитатаNASA's EUNIS Mission: Six Minutes in the Life of the Sun
12.11.12 

 NOTE: The EUNIS Mission has been delayed until some time in 2013 due to rocket and range issues.

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/27519.jpg)
Unlike a conventional image, NASA's Extreme Ultraviolet Normal Incidence Spectrograph will provide what's known as "spectra" such as above, which show lines to highlight which wavelengths of light are brighter than others. That information, in turn, corresponds to which elements are present in the sun's atmosphere and at what temperature. Credit: NASA/EUNIS

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/27520.jpg)

The EUNIS team stands in front of the sounding rocket before its second launch on Nov. 6, 2007. The mission will launch again for a six-minute flight to observe the sun on December 15, 2012. Credit: U.S. Navy In December, a NASA mission to study the sun will make its third launch into space for a six-minute flight to gather information about the way material roils through the sun's atmosphere, sometimes causing eruptions and ejections that travel as far as Earth. The launch of the EUNIS mission, short for Extreme Ultraviolet Normal Incidence Spectrograph, is scheduled for Dec. 15, 2012, fr om White Sands, N.M. aboard a Black Brant IX rocket. During its journey, EUNIS will gather a new snapshot of data every 1.2 seconds to track the way material of different temperatures flows through this complex atmosphere, known as the corona.

 A full study of the sun's atmosphere requires watching it fr om space, where one can see the ultraviolet, or UV, rays that simply don't penetrate Earth's atmosphere. Such observations can be done in one of two ways – send up a long-term satellite to keep a constant eye on the sun, or launch a less expensive rocket, known as a sounding rocket, for a six minute trip above Earth's atmosphere to collect data fast and furiously throughout its short trip up to an altitude of 200 miles and back.

 "Six minutes doesn't sound like much," says solar scientist Douglas Rabin who is the principal investigator for EUNIS at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "But with an exposure every 1.2 seconds, we get very good time resolution and a lot of data. So we can observe minute details of how dynamic events on the sun happen over times of two to three minutes."

 Watching the sun at this kind of time cadence helps scientists understand the complex movements of solar material – a heated, charged gas known as plasma – as it heats and cools, rising, sinking and gliding around with every change in temperature. Adding to the complexity of the flows are magnetic fields traveling along with the plasma that also guide the material's movements.

 This writhing atmosphere around the sun powers an array of solar events, many of which stream out into the farthest reaches of the solar system, sometimes disrupting Earth-based technologies along the way.

 "Ultimately all of our research is geared toward addressing key outstanding questions in solar physics including how the sun's outer atmosphere, or corona, is heated, what drives the solar wind, and how energy is stored and released to cause eruptions," says Jeff Brosius, a solar scientist at the Catholic University of America and a EUNIS co-investigator based at Goddard.

 But teasing out how this energy moves through the corona is not a simple process. Different types of observations and techniques must be combined to truly track how different temperature material courses around.

 The technique that EUNIS uses to observe the sun is known as spectroscopy. Taking pictures of the sun is one very useful form of observation, but it requires looking at just one wavelength of light at a time. A spectrometer on the other hand does not provide imagery, in a conventional way, but gathers information about how much of any given wavelength of light is present, showing spectral "lines" at wavelengths where the sun emits relatively more radiation. Since each spectral line corresponds to a given temperature of material, this provides information about how much plasma of a given temperature is present. Capturing many spectra during the flight will show how the plasma heats and cools over time. Each wavelength also corresponds to a particular element, such as helium or iron, so spectroscopy also provides information about how much of each element is present. Each spectrographic snapshot fr om EUNIS is based on light from a long, narrow sliver running across about third of the visible sun -- nearly 220,000 miles long.

 "Looking at a small slice of the sun at such fast time cadence means we can look at the evolution and flows on the sun in a very direct way," says solar scientist Adrian Daw, the instrument scientist for EUNIS at Goddard.

 Repeated sounding rocket flights offer significant advantages compared to orbital missions in terms of the measurement flexibility. Each separate flight can focus on the specific measurements that are most valuable, adjusting, as necessary, making improvements and emphasizing different aspects of the sun. Improving time cadence, for example, may be necessary to study the dynamics, however this inherently lim its the observational resolution as the instrument gathers less light for any given snapshot of data. This flexibility in emphasis for each flight greatly enhances the scientific return.

 This launch is the third for the EUNIS mission, but the tenth in a line of similar rockets wh ere the predecessor was named SERTS for Solar Extreme-ultraviolet Research Telescope and Spectrograph. On each flight the scientists turned their attention to focusing on a different aspect of their research. During this flight, the instrument will observe a band of extreme ultraviolet light with wavelengths from 525 to 630 Angstroms with better sensitivity and greater spectral resolution than any previous instrument. This set of wavelengths covers a wide range of temperatures, representing solar plasma at 45,000 to 18 million degrees Fahrenheit (25,000 to 10 million Kelvin) which includes the temperature ranges of material from near the sun's surface to the much hotter corona above. Since we do not yet understand why the corona gets hotter the farther it is from the sun – unlike, for example, a fire wh ere the air gets cooler farther away – studying such a wide range is crucial part for understanding that process.

 With a six-minute window, EUNIS is unlikely to see a specific large eruption on the sun such as a solar flare or coronal mass ejection (CME) but since the sun is currently moving into the height of its 11-year cycle, they do expect to see a fairly active sun.

 "The last two times EUNIS flew were in 2006 and 2007," says Daw. "Now the sun is waking up, getting more active and we're going to see a whole different type of activity."

ЦитатаVISIONS: Seeing the Aurora in a New Light

A team of NASA scientists arrived in Poker Flats, Alaska at the end of January, 2013. The team is patiently waiting for the exotic red and green glow of an aurora to illuminate the sky. Instead of simply admiring the view, this group from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center of Greenbelt, Md., and The Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo, Calif. will launch a sounding rocket up through the Northern Lights. The rocket could launch as early as the night of Feb. 2, 2013, but the team has a two-week window in order to find the perfect launch conditions.

Armed with a series of instruments developed specifically for this mission, the VISIONS (VISualizing Ion Outflow via Neutral atom imaging during a Substorm) rocket will soar high through the arctic sky to study the auroral wind, which is a strong but intermittent stream of oxygen atoms from Earth's atmosphere into outer space. The rocket will survive only fifteen minutes before splashing down in the Arctic Ocean, but the information it obtains will provide answers to some long-standing questions.

VISIONS is studying how oxygen atoms leave Earth's atmosphere under the influence of the aurora. Most of the atmosphere is bound by Earth's gravity, but a small portion of it gets heated enough by the aurora that it can break free, flowing outwards until it reaches near-Earth space. The atoms that form this wind initially travel at about 300 miles per hour -- only one percent of the speed needed to overcome gravity and leave Earth's atmosphere.

The principal investigator for VISIONS, Goddard's Doug Rowland is providing images while the team prepares for launch.

VISIONS is a partnership between NASA Goddard and the Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo, Calif. The sounding rocket motors and payload support systems are provided by NASA Wallops Flight Facility, including NSROC, the NASA Sounding Rocket Operations Contract. The Poker Flat Research Range is operated by the University of Alaska under contract to NASA.

 The flight tested several technologies to improve pointing control and data collection capabilities during suborbital flights. The primary purpose of the mission was to verify the ground based command uplink equipment from when it was recently moved into a new facility at White Sands. The sounding rocket program also took this opportunity to test technology developments, as well as provide an educational experience for students at the White Sands Middle School.

Perhaps worth mentioning here that there have been at least 20 Scud launches and 3 Fateh-110 launches in Syria between Dec 10 and Feb 22, launched by the Syrian regime mostly
from An Nasriyah near Damascus towards Aleppo, causing casualties in rebel areas.
The Scuds probably were mildly exoatmospheric over the 300 km range; not sure if the Fateh-110 goes as high.

Also the first flight of the Israeli Arrow 3 exoatmospheric missile defense interceptor was on Feb 25 from Palmachim.

And on Feb 13, a Terrier Oriole ARAV-B was launched from Kauai and intercepted by an Aegis SM-3.

Looking forward to some more NASA scientific launches!

China made another sub-orbital sounding rocket launch earlier today. The Tianying-3E rocket was launched from a base on Hainan island (*) at 21:55 UTC on April 4 and reached an altitude of 191 km. The rocket carried 1 kg of solid barium particles that were released at apogee, and the resulting barium clouds were observed by 3 ground observing sites and equipment on the rocket (a Langmuir probe and an electric field probe).

This is the first Chinese active release sounding rocket mission launched, and is part of the Meridian ionosphere monitoring program managed by the National Space Science Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Other participants of the launch includes the CAS Xian Optical Machinery Institute and Austria's University of Graz for the "Kunpeng-1" payload package and the Chinese Academy of Aerospace Propulsion Technology for the sounding rocket.

(*) The launch site has been reported as the "Chinese Academy of Sciences Hainan Sounding Rocket Launch Site", and is apparently located near the village of Fuke, Yaxing Town, Danzhou City, Hainan Island, at 19.52 deg. North and 109.14 deg. East.

ЦитатаProspector answers LSP call

By Steven Siceloff Spaceport News Nano- and microsatellites built by students, businesses and research organizations can catch their own rides into space now that a California-based company is launching operational flights of a high-altitude rocket big enough to carry payloads high into the atmosphere.
Garvey Spacecraft Corp.'s Prospector 18 (P-18 )  has made four flights so far, including an operational mission last December that saw it carry a research payload for NASA's Ames Research Center and California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly). The Long Beach, Calif.-based company is using the P-18 as a pathfinder for building a larger model that can reach orbit.
The development is important for NASA because it gives satellite builders a chance to fly high-altitude experiments before hitching a ride on a larger mission and rocket, said Garrett Skrobot of NASA's Launch Services Program who runs the CubeSat and Nanosat projects of the agency's ELaNa program, short for Educational Launch of Nanosatellites.
"Today, nanosat developers still depend on secondary ride opportunities to get to orbit," Skrobot said. "There are several operational issues with that approach. In response, with projects like this, we are taking the first steps with Garvey Spacecraft and other small launch vehicle developers to explore alternatives that could eventually lead to dedicated launch services that are tailored to the requirements of this market."
The High Altitude Launch Service contract paid for the December mission and another mission, scheduled to launch June 15. This flight will test the CP9/StangSat payload; a spacecraft being built by Merritt Island High School; Cal Poly's payload; a Rocket University experiment that is a product of Kennedy Space Center; and another research payload from Ames and a new lightweight nanosat carrier system.
The satellites in mind for the rocket are 4-inch squares that weigh about two pounds. Previously, they were carried inside a rectangular box fitted on larger rockets and sprung free into orbit once the main payload was deployed.
With a rocket fitted to the small satellite needs, though, more experiments and hardware also can be flown at a lower cost. The rocket's flight profile can be adjusted to meet specific needs of a research payload.

Workshop to Explore Scientific Potential of Suborbital Spacecraft

April meeting includes first look at creating dedicated research 'space vessels'

While commercial firms design suborbital reusable launch vehicles that could carry tourists to outer space, scientists wonder if these same vehicles could blaze new trails into Earth's upper atmosphere as dedicated research platforms. Experts from the Earth science and commercial space communities will explore these possibilities for the first time in a workshop, "The End of the Ignorosphere," April 28–30 in Annapolis, Md.

Hosted by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), the meeting will allow scientists to discuss the latest commercial space developments and determine the utility, challenges and interest for the types of aeronomy investigations — studies of the upper atmosphere — enabled by the rapidly emerging commercial suborbital spacecraft industry.

Aside from vehicle developments, presentations will cover some of the investigations scientists already envision — and organizers invite the community to submit talks on potential atmospheric research that can be conducted up to 100 kilometers (62 miles) above Earth.

APL's H. Todd Smith, who heads the workshop's scientific organizing committee, says the chance to fly or send equipment to suborbital space — more frequently and at much lower cost than traditional satellite missions — is enticing and exciting. "This could lead to completely new thematic approaches in scientific investigations," he says. "We're talking about establishing a spacecraft as a dedicated research vessel, in the same way we now use aircraft, ships and submarines. Such an asset could revolutionize our understanding of the Earth and our atmosphere, and ignite new scientific, educational and engineering opportunities."

The workshop, which also includes sponsors such as XCOR Aerospace, will be held at the Historic Inns of Annapolis. To register, or for more information, visit the workshop website at https://secwww.jhuapl.edu/aeronomy/ .

The project

The TEXUS project is a sounding rocket program with the primary aim to investigate the properties and behaviour of materials, chemicals and biological substances in a microgravity environment. The TEXUS program gives around six minutes of microgravity.
The TEXUS programme started in 1977 and is carried out at Esrange Space Center jointly by DLR, EADS Astrium, Kayser-Threde and SSC. SSC is responsible for the launch operations. The TEXUS campaigns are sometimes financed by ESA or jointly financed by DLR and ESA.
TEXUS 50/51

The rocket vehicle Skylark 7 was used very successfully for the first 25 years until the motor was no longer available. The Brazilian motor VSB-30 has been used for the TEXUS programme since 2005 and will be used to launch the TEXUS 50 and 51 payloads to around 270 km altitude.

ЦитатаTEXUS 50 – Anniversary for Germany's sounding rocket programme

Launch of TEXUS 50

It is the world's longest running rocket programme for conducting research in microgravity, and today it is celebrating an anniversary. Around 35 years after the launch of the first TEXUS mission in December 1977, the 50th TEXUS rocket was successfully launched into space from the Esrange Space Center near Kiruna in northern Sweden on 12 April 2013 at 06:25 CEST. The flight lasted 20 minutes, with six minutes of microgravity. A parachute then returned the scientific payload to the ground.  

The German Aerospace Center's (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) sounding rocket carried four German biology and materials research experiments to an altitude of 261 kilometres. The VSB-30 rocket was powered during its initial climb, which lasted a little over 30 seconds, and then continued its journey in free flight.

"The main payload on board the TEXUS 50 mission is the EML electromagnetic levitation facility developed in Germany," reports Otfried Joop, TEXUS project manager at the DLR Space Administration, adding: "It is being used by researchers at the DLR Institute of Material Physics in Space to conduct two experiments in which they can investigate the thermophysical properties and solidification behaviour of metal alloys, which are of great interest to industry. The scientists are investigating a nickel-zirconium alloy, as well as an aluminium-nickel compound that is used in aviation and other transport systems." Thanks to the TEXUS flight, the Cologne-based DLR researchers are acquiring highly accurate data for computer simulations that form part of modern industrial manufacturing processes.

At the University of Marburg, scientists want to use fungal sporophores to investigate the initial reactions of an organism to changes in gravity. How are these sensed and how quickly does the fungus react to the change in gravity and to microgravity? "The relatively long period the rocket spends in microgravity, and a built-in precision centrifuge, should enable the scientists to measure the kinetics and threshold value – that is, the minimum amount of gravity that the fungus needs to respond – for the first time," explains Joop.

In the second biological experiment on TEXUS 50, scientists from the University of Freiburg want to identify the genes and gene products (messenger RNA) that play a role in the perception and processing of gravity in plants. To do this, the flight is carrying seedlings of Arabidopsis Thaliana, a plant that has been used by researchers as a model organism since the 1940s due to its relatively simple genetic structure. "After the flight, the TEXUS seedlings will be compared to plants that remained on the ground," says Otfried Joop in summary. Among other things, the researchers will be looking for answers to the question of which classes of gene are activated or deactivated by changes in gravity.

Double campaign – two rockets in one week

"TEXUS 50/51 is also the first German double campaign since 1981," says Joop. One week after the anniversary mission, TEXUS 51 will be ready for launch on 19 April 2013 with four more experiments by German scientists:

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Systems and Device Technology (Fraunhofer IISB) in Erlangen, the University of Freiburg and the University of Bayreuth have been studying the incorporation of particles during directional solidification of silicon crystals for photovoltaic cells, as part of the ParSiWal experiment. This is intended to clarify the mechanisms by which harmful silicon carbide particles are integrated into silicon crystals during the crystallisation process. The presence of silicon carbide (SiC) particles during the industrial production of silicon for photovoltaic cells hinders the mechanical processing of the product and reduces the efficiency of the finished solar cells. It is therefore important to prevent the integration of SiC particles into the silicon crystal. The particles are formed during crystallisation in a silicon melt that is contaminated with carbon. Gravity significantly influences the flow of the melt and causes the SiC particles to sink, as they are denser than silicon. In space, these gravity-induced effects are eliminated. This significantly reduces the complexity of the processes and simplifies their physical description. The results should ultimately contribute to an improvement in the quality and efficiency of solar cells.

The FOKUS experiment run by the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Munich should prove that the technology of a frequency comb is mature enough for applications in spaceflight. At the core of a frequency comb is a pulsed laser that is used to measure optical frequencies. This technology will be used in precision spectroscopy, for example when investigating trace gases in the atmosphere, in astrophysics, or in new, extremely precise atomic clocks for research missions or navigation. The frequency comb is a laser that was developed by the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in 1999. Theodor W. Hänsch shared the 2005 Nobel Prize for Physics in recognition of this work.

The SITI-2 medical and biological experiment, conducted by a group of scientists at the University of Magdeburg, should explain the mechanisms that lead to problems with the human immune system in microgravity – some astronauts suffer greatly from infections during long stays in space. For this reason, the TEXUS 51 flight will carry cell cultures in which the activity of genes in immune systems are set to be investigated using modern DNA chip technology. If the scientists confirm their suspicion that certain molecules in the cell membrane are responsible for the problems caused by microgravity, these results might lead to new approaches in the fight against long-term illnesses.

Finally, in the TRACE-3 material science experiment, run by the ACCESS research centre in Aachen, processes and structures that are important for the solidification of metal alloys will be analysed. The scientists will monitor this in, for example, a mixture of organic substances that solidifies like a liquid metal. The solidification process can then be observed directly, as the alloy is transparent. The data acquired should improve industrial casting processes.

Since 1977, throughout the TEXUS programme, some 300 scientific experiments have been carried out, 70 percent of these under contract to DLR, and around 30 percent under collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA). "This means that, in collaboration with other DLR flight facilities, TEXUS is an essential component for fundamental research in microgravity, and hence also for the preparation of long-term space experiments, possibly on the International Space Station," said Otfried Joop, summing up the programme.

The Equatorial Vortex Experiment (EVEX) was successfully conducted during early morning hours May 7 from Roi Namur, Republic of the Marshall Islands. A NASA Terrier-Oriole sounding rocket was launched at 3:39 a.m. EDT followed by the launch of a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket 90 seconds later. Preliminary indications are that both rockets released their vapor clouds of lithium or trimethyl aluminum, which were observed from various locations in the area, and all science instruments on the rockets worked as planned. More information on EVEX can be found at http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sounding-rockets/news/evex.html These were the second and third rockets of four planned for launch during this year's campaign in the Marshall Islands.

The launch of a NASA Terrier-Improved Orion sounding rocket at 3:23 a.m. EDT, May 9, from Roi Namur, Republic of the Marshall Island, brought to an end a very successful campaign studying ionospheric activity and its impact on radio, communication and navigation signals.

The final launch was for the Metal Oxide Space Cloud Experiment (MOSC). The rocket flew to more than 117 miles altitude and safely splashed down in the Pacific Ocean.

At approximately 113 miles altitude the payload released a Samarium vapor cloud, which was seen at several observation sites in the neighboring islands. This allowed researchers from the Air Force Research Laboratory to study the cloud as it dispersed and its impact on radio transmissions.

In all, a total of 4 rockets were launched during the campaign. Two of the rockets were part of the MOSC experiment. The other two rockets were for the Equatorial Vortex Experiment or EVEX which looked at post-sunset solar storms.

 WASHINGTON ­— A tiny astrophysics probe is slated to make its fourth and final suborbital flight June 4 when it lifts off aboard a Black Brant 12 sounding rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, NASA announced May 29.
The Cosmic Infrared Background ExpeRiment (CIBER), a compact astrophysics observatory designed by Jamie Bock of the California Insitute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif., has been launched, recovered and recalibrated for reflight three times since 2009. All three of those launches took place at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., and involved smaller sounding rockets than the Black Brant 12 slated for next week's attempt. But the higher altitude and longer observation time made possible by the Black Brant comes at a price: CIBER is expected to splash down in the Atlantic Ocean about 640 kilometers off the Virginia coast and will not be recovered.
The night time launch — live coverage begins at 10 p.m. EDT on NASA's Ustream channel — may be visible to residents in the Mid-Atlantic region, NASA said. The back up launch dates are June 5-10.

Rocket Launches from Wallops Flight Facility

A NASA Black Brant XII suborbital rocket streaks into the night sky following its launch at 11:05 p.m. EDT on June 5, 2013 from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The rocket carried the Cosmic Infrared Background ExpeRiment (CIBER) to an altitude of approximately 358 miles above the Atlantic Ocean by the four-stage rocket. The launch, seen here with multiple stages firing off, was reportedly seen from as far away as central New Jersey, southeastern Pennsylvania and northeastern North Carolina. With CIBER, scientists are studying when the first stars and galaxies formed in the universe and how brightly they burned their nuclear fuel.

ЦитатаTwo suborbital rockets were successfully launched 15 seconds apart on the morning of July 4, 2013, from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility as part of a study of electrical currents in the ionosphere. The project is designed to study a global electrical current called the dynamo, which sweeps through the ionosphere.
The launch of the Black Brant V rocket at 10:31:25 a.m. and the Terrier-Improved Orion at 10:31:40 a.m. were part of the Daytime Dynamo experiment, a joint project between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA.
The first rocket carried a payload that collected data on the neutral and charged particles in the ionosphere. The second rocket released a long trail of lithium gas to track how the upper atmospheric wind varies with altitude. These winds are believed to be the drivers of the dynamo currents.

ЦитатаSounding rockets have been developed and launched by ISAS for more than 40 years. They have been dedicated to astrophysical observation, upper atmosphere exploration, space plasma physics, etc., for scientific research. Making use of these flight opportunities, ISAS engineering studies have also been conducted to demonstrate new vehicle systems such as attitude control systems, reentry flight technologies, recovery systems, new avionics, etc., some of which will be employed in the coming satellite launch vehicles and spacecraft. The community of micro-gravity utilization for both material research and life science also uses the sounding rockets.

S-310

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/87573.jpg)
The S-310 is a single-stage sounding rocket, 310 mm in diameter, and can reach an altitude of 150 km. In case of S-310, it is spun positively in the atmosphere to overcome resonance, and thus avoids continued resonance problems. It also corrects for attitude disturbance by aerodynamic damping. The spin is provided by twisted tail fins which cause 2.8 Hz spin to the body.
 The thrust programming is designed to peak in the early stage, and to keep the thrust level low in the latter half of burning time, when aerodynamic forces increase dramatically. This contributes to attaining increased summit altitude, and relieving aerodynamic heating by reducing dynamic pressure. The chamber is made of AISI 4340 steel. The CTPB composite propellant grain is single, and has axially two different wagon-wheel port configurations. Since the aftward portion of the grain is consumed earlier, a dual-thrust profile is given. Each tail fin is made of a solid titanium plate, and the ogive nose cone is made of FRP.
 In the payload bay is a yo-yo despinner system, which is actuated at 50 sec. after lift-off, to reduce the spin to 1 Hz during the observation period.
 The first flight of S-310 in January, 1975, was successful, and it has been launched at Kagoshima Space Center at Uchinoura, and Showa Base in Antarctica.
 
S-520
 
 (https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/87574.jpg)
 The S-520 is a powerful single-stage rocket which is optionally equipped with three-axis attitude control and a recovery system. It has a capability for launching a 100 kg payload far above 300 km and provides more than 5 minutes for micro-gravity flight environments.
 The S-520 was developed to replace K-9M and K-10 type sounding rockets, and succeeded in doubling the payload capability of K-9M by applying high-performance propellant, optimum thrust program, and lightweight structure.
 The experience of S-310 was put to good use in the thrust programming and stabilization strategy of S-310, enabling quite stable flight performance since its first flight early in 1980.
 The merits of S-520, such as simplification of flight operation without staging, settlement of impact-related maritime safety, and reduction of launch cost, make the application of this sounding rocket more meaningful.
 The HTPB composite propellant grain is cast and molded in the case in the same way as the first stage of Mu launch vehicles. The propellant grain is single, and gives a dual-thrust profile similar to the S-310's. The forward portion of the grain has a seven pointed gear configuration and provides an initial period of high thrust, while the aftward portion with a simple tubular design sustains a lower level thrust period. The nozzle with an initial expansion ratio of 8:1 is designed to improve the effective specific impulse. The chamber is made of high tensile steel HT-140. For weight saving and heat resistance, the leading edge of the tail fins is made of titanium alloy and their body is an aluminum honeycomb sandwich plate with GFRP/CFRP laminated surface plates.
 Scientific instruments are stored inside the nose fairing made of GFRP, and common instruments are in the parallel section. As an option, an attitude control module or recovery module can be put into the part between common instruments and the rocket motor.
 The fourth flight carried out payload retrieval, and the third flight, launched later than the fourth, performed attitude control of the nose by the hydrazine side jet system. The attitude outside the atmosphere is stabilized by spinning with tail fins. The spin reaches 2.2 Hz at the last stage to be decelerated using a yo-yo despinner system.
 
SS-520
 
 (https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/87575.jpg)
 The SS-520 is a two-stage rocket, the first stage of which comes from the main booster of the S-520, and has a capability for launching a 140 kg payload to an altitude of about 800 km.
 The SS-520 aims at reaching 800 km altitude, and at the same time, carrying out technological experiments concerning the development of a mini-satellite launch vehicle by adding the third stage atop. The first stage is stabilized aerodynamically by use of tail fins like the S-520.
 As the second stage is heavier than the head of S-520, the aerodynamic margin is secured more than ever. The whole motor case of the second stage is made of CFRP. The spin generated in the first stage is succeeded by the second stage, and it is utilized in the Rhumb-line control and spin stabilization.
 The SS-520 debuted in January, 1998, and ISAS has a plan to launch it from Spitsbergen, Norway, to send a payload into the cusp region of the geomagnetosphere.

 Unlike a satellite launch vehicle, a sounding rocket performs an observation mission during its flight in space before impact. It usually comprises one or two stages. When the experiment is completed, the rocket dives into the sea along with its observation instruments.
The observation instruments are usually fixed to the rocket's nose fairing and covered by a nosecone like a pointed hat for protection from aerodynamic heating. When the rocket reaches a given altitude, timer-fixed functions start to open the nosecone, extend antennas, sometimes release test samples for observation, and conduct other tasks to prepare for the planned observation. The observation starts before the rocket reaches its maximum altitude and ends before it splashes down in the sea.
While balloons cannot float above approx. 50 km, many satellites can fly over 250 km in altitude. Thus, only sounding rockets are capable of directly observing space between these two altitudes, which is called the mesosphere, thermosphere or ionosphere. Sounding rockets have been launched to discover phenomena unique to this region. Observation subjects are sel ected from proposals by researchers at universities and institutes across the country.
ISAS sounding rockets have been the pillar of Japan's space science, contributing to astrophysical observation, upper atmospheric studies, space plasma physics, etc. The ISAS engineering team is developing new flying-vehicle systems, including propulsion systems, attitude control systems, and re-entry, recovery and navigation technology. Sounding rockets are also used in microgravity experiments for material and life sciences. Offering quick response to planning, implementation and results of experiments, sounding rockets also show excellent flexibility in function and performance confirmation tests of the new observation instruments and technical elements that are expected to be loaded on future satellites and space explorers.
ISAS currently uses three types of sounding rockets: S-310, S-520 and SS-520. One or two are launched annually from the Uchinoura Space Center located at the eastern tip of the Ohsumi Peninsula, Kagoshima Prefecture. The S-310 was also used for observation in Antarctic exploration by the National Institute of Polar Research. The S-310 and S-520 were launched for direct observation of aurora in the Andoya Rocket Range, Norway. The SS-520 was launched fr om Spitsbergen Island, Norway, to study a magnetospheric region called the "cusp."

Sounding Rocket Flight Ends Prematurely
http://www.nasa.gov/content/wallops/nasa-to-test-suborbital-rocket-technologies/

ЦитатаWALLOPS ISLAND, Va.—The flight of a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility ended prematurely today at 4:36 a.m. EDT about 19 seconds after its launch.

Range controllers detected a flight anomaly with the second stage Improved Malemute motor; the vehicle flew to an altitude of 27,000 feet and impacted about one nautical mile downrange.

There were no injuries or property damage as the vehicle landed in the established hazard zone in the Atlantic Ocean, which was cleared prior to launch.

A NASA team will investigate the cause of the flight anomaly and more information will be released as it becomes available

НАСА запустило ракету для испытания новых технологий освоения космоса
http://tass.ru/kosmos/2099090

ЦитатаВАШИНГТОН, 7 июля. /ТАСС/. Американские специалисты осуществили сегодня запуск ракеты Black Brant IX ("Блэк Брант-9" ;) , предназначенной для испытания новых технологий освоения космического пространства. Об этом сообщило Национальное управление по аэронавтике и исследованию космического пространства (НАСА).

В ходе непродолжительного суборбитального полета осуществлена проверка двух видов технологий, разработанных в исследовательских центрах космического ведомства США в штатах Калифорния и Огайо. Один из них предназначен для "пассивного сведения объектов с орбиты", другой - для "передачи тепловой энергии", сообщили ранее в ведомстве.

Black Brant IX относится к классу зондирующих ракет, используемых для изучения различных явлений в верхних слоях атмосферы, в том числе в ионосфере Земли, а также испытаний новых приборов и механизмов. Такие ракеты летят по параболической траектории и выводят полезную нагрузку в космическое пространство всего на 5-20 минут. Однако специалисты считают, что с учетом невысокой скорости на самом верхнем отрезке пути они создают идеальные условия для научных экспериментов.

Launch Result of S-520-30 Sounding Rocket
http://global.jaxa.jp/press/2015/09/20150911_s-520-30.html

ЦитатаThe Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(JAXA)launched the S-520-30 sounding rocket from the Uchinoura Space Center on September 11 (Fri.), 2015, with the objective of "clarifying the nucleation process of oxide-based cosmic dusts". The flight went smoothly, and the S-520-30 dropped into the south eastern ocean off Uchinoura.

With this experiment, the first sounding rocket experiment in Japan fiscal Year 2015 has been completed. We would like to express our profound appreciation to all related parties and personnel who have been cooperating with the launch of the S-520-30 sounding rocket.

The experiment of the S-520-30 this time aims at clarifying the nucleation process of oxide-based cosmic dusts. We evaporated oxides under the micro-gravity environment by ballistic flight of the S-520-30, and directly measured the generation and growth process of oxide particles that were condensing after the evaporation. For the measurement, we use two kinds of equipment: a dual-wavelength interferometer and an on-site measurement instrument of floating dust infrared spectra. More detailed analysis will be performed at each university.

Launch time (JST): 8:00:00 p.m.
Elevation angle: 78 degrees
Observation start: 53 seconds after liftoff

ЦитатаOctober 7, 2015; CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. — NASA successfully launched a sounding rocket Wednesday evening from its Wallops Flight Facility, the first launch from the site since an Antares rocket exploded shortly after liftoff Oct. 28, 2014.

The mission is designed to test new technology, with the aim of making future space missions less expensive and less risky, officials say.

The suborbital Black Brant IX sounding rocket flight will test the performance of the Black Brant motor in a two-stage configuration. Scientists also will be testing a new method of fabricating the payload that creates the most forward part in one step. The conventional machined and welded construction process is costly, adds weight and introduces more risk, according to NASA.

ЦитатаChinese Academy of Sciences successfully launched a new sounding rocket, "Kunpeng-1B," in Hainan Danzhou early Wednesday. The rocket reached a flight height of 300 kilometers for the first time. Its arrow configuration of altitude control system and carbon fiber stretching rod are being used for the first time in China.

This is the first time Kunpeng 1B's arrow configuration of altitude control system and carbon fiber stretching rod has been used on a sounding rocket in China. It makes the detector more flexible and lightweight.

The rocket's falling ball experiment detection for further study of low latitudes in the ionosphere and in the upper atmosphere has important scientific significance. Compared to other space detection methods, sounding rockets are cost effective and have short development cycles.

"In the 13th Five Year Plan, we are planning to launch one or two every year from this site. In the future, we may also develop a special probe. This will also recycle, as its recovery can open doors for life science experiments and microgravity science experiments," said Wu Ji, Director of National Space Science Center.

Three NASA rockets carrying instruments into active auroras over Alaska to aid scientists studying the northern lights and the interactions of the solar wind with Earth's upper atmosphere and ionosphere were launched within a nearly two-hour period March 2, 2017.

The instruments were successfully carried on Black IX sounding rockets from the Poker Flat Research Range north of Fairbanks. The first two rockets were launched nearly simultaneously at 12:41 a.m. and 12:42:30 a.m. EST as part of the Neutral Jets in Auroral Arcs mission. The third rocket launched at 2:50 a.m. EST was part of the Ionospheric Structuring: In Situ and Groundbased Low Altitude StudieS or ISINGLASS mission.
Спойлер
Preliminary reports indicate that data was received from instruments aboard all three rockets.

Phil Eberspeaker, chief of the Sounding Rocket Program Office, said, "The ability to successfully launch these three rockets is a testament to the capabilities of the range, science and sounding rocket teams.  Great coordination is required to institute the complex countdown required to prepare and launch three rockets in a short period.  The team did a fantastic job executing these launches."

Neutral Jet scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, explain that electric fields drive the ionosphere, which, in turn, are predicted to set up enhanced neutral winds within an aurora arc. This experiment seeks to understand the height-dependent processes that create localized neutral jets within the aurora.

Flying the two similar payloads simultaneously to different altitudes provided researchers unprecedented vertical measurements within an aurora. The first rocket flew to an altitude of 205 miles of above the Earth and the second flew to 118 miles.

The third rocket, flown to 227 miles altitude, was preceded by another ISINGLASS launch on Feb. 22. As with the first rocket, the payload included the deployment of a sub-payload and also several instrumented deployable canisters.  The use of these various miniature subsystems and the main payload will give researchers a multipoint view of spatial structures within the aurora.

Kristina Lynch, ISINGLASS principal investigator from Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, said, "The visible light produced in the atmosphere as aurora is the last step of a chain of processes connecting the solar wind to the atmosphere.   We are seeking to understand what structure in these visible signatures can tell us about the electrodynamics of processes higher up."

The three rockets launched were part of five launched in January through March from the Poker Flat Research Range (http://www.pfrr.alaska.edu/), operated by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, to study auroras. The Polar Night Nitric Oxide mission, from Va. Tech in Blacksburg, flew successfully on January 27.

The five launches from Alaska are supported through NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home) at Wallops Island, Virginia, which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (http://www.nasa.gov/goddard) in Greenbelt, Maryland. Orbital ATK provides mission planning, engineering services and field operations for the NASA Sounding Rocket Operations Contract. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding-rocket program for the agency.

Title Taking it to the Supermax

Released 04/04/2017 2:36 pm

Copyright Vorticity Ltd

Description

What better way to test supersonic parachutes than strapping one to a rocket? One experiment is going to do just that on Thursday's Maxus-9 suborbital rocket.
The SUpersonic Parachute Experiment Ride on MAXus, or Supermax, is being given a piggyback on Maxus-9, lifting off from Esrange Space Center in Kiruna, Sweden on 6 April. Sounding rockets are launched to the edge of space and free fall back to Earth, allowing experiments to run in weightlessness before landing.
In the case of Supermax, the test vehicle is hitching a ride. Unlike the other experiments, the capsule will detach after the Maxus solid-propellant motor burns out. It will travel separately to the highest point of 715 km before falling back under the pull of gravity to reach twice the speed of sound. The 1.25 m-diameter supersonic parachute will then deploy at an altitude of 20 km to stabilise it for a soft landing. An onboard computer will record data and images.
Supermax aims to demonstrate the use of suborbital rockets as platforms for testing supersonic parachutes. Researchers from the UK's Vorticity Ltd and Fluid Gravity Engineering Ltd have already run experiments in wind tunnels. Though effective, wind tunnels and some rockets are expensive to employ. Piggybacking on a sounding rocket could be a more cost-efficient approach for testing future supersonic parachutes.

ЦитатаEurope's largest sounding rocket successfully launched from Esrange
 
07 Apr 2017

Today MAXUS 9, Europe's largest sounding rocket for experiments in micro­gravity, successfully lifted off from SSC's (Swedish Space Corporation's) launch facility Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden.
(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/234899.jpg)

The rocket was launched at 11:30 local time and carried nine scientific experiments and a techno­logy demonstrator, altogether 579 kg, to an altitude of 678 km which enabled slightly more than 12 minutes and of stable microgravity, 10-5 g. The payload landed safely with a parachute within the impact area and has been recovered by helicopter. The rocket engineers will then disassemble the payload to enable for the scientists to perform further analyses of their experiments.

One of the main purposes of the different experiments is to investigate different materials and processes in microgravity. One example is the XRMON-Diff2 experiment module developed by SSC. By using a unique X-ray radiography, samples of the metal alloys Al-Ti and Si-Ge will be studied during the microgravity phase. The sel ected alloy systems are of industrial relevance and by observing them in in clean microgravity conditions, important benchmark values for ground-based experiments will be obtained and thereby contributing to the improvement of solidification models.

"Sounding rockets from Esrange Space Center are a key platform for research providing an important, cost-effective and independent means for Europe to carry out specific experiments with a relatively quick turnaround of results. The researchers are pleased with the results so far and will now focus on further analyses of their experiments, says Mr. Antonio Verga, System Engineer at ESA".

" MAXUS is not only Europe's largest sounding rocket; it is also a guided rocket. Providing launch services for MAXUS demonstrate that SSC has the competence and potential to further raise the level of our advanced space services through launches of small satellites fr om Esrange, says Lennart Poromaa, Site Manager at Esrange."

The MAXUS sounding rocket program is a joint venture between SSC and Airbus, funded by ESA. Several other space companies are involved such as DLR, OHB and RUAG Space.

RAISE Successfully Rises

The Rapid Acquisition Imaging Spectrograph Experiment or RAISE was successfully launched at 2:24:58 p.m. EDT, May 5.  The payload was launched on a NASA Black Brant IX sounding rocket at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico and flew to an altitude of 184 miles  The experimenter, Don Hassler with the Southwest Research Institute, reported that good data fr om the instruments observing the sun was received during the flight. The payload is being recovered.

On May 5, 2017, scientists will launch a sounding rocket (https://www.nasa.gov/missions/research/f_sounding.html) 200 miles up into the atmosphere, where in just five minutes, it will take 1,500 images of the sun. The NASA-funded RAISE mission is designed to scrutinize split-second changes occurring near the sun's active regions — areas of intense, complex magnetic activity that can give rise to solar flares, which eject energy and solar material out into space.

Several missions continuously study the sun — such as NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sdo/main/index.html), or SDO, and the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory, or STEREO (https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/stereo/mission/index.html) — but certain areas of the sun demand especially high-cadence observations in order to understand the rapid changes occurring there. That's where RAISE — short for Rapid Acquisition Imaging Spectrograph Experiment — comes in.

"Dynamic processes happen on all timescales," said Don Hassler, principal investigator for the RAISE mission at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. "With RAISE, we'll read out an image every two-tenths of a second, so we can study very fast processes and changes on the sun. That's around five to 10 times faster than comparable instruments on other sounding rocket or satellite missions."

RAISE images are used to create a data product called a spectrogram, which separates light from the sun into all its different wavelength components. By looking at the intensity of light at each wavelength, scientists can assess how solar material and energy moves around the sun, and how that movement evolves into massive solar eruptions.

"RAISE is pushing the limits of high-cadence observations, and doing so is challenging," Hassler said. "But that's exactly what the NASA sounding rocket program is for."

The flight of a sounding rocket is short-lived, and has a parabolic trajectory — the shape of a frown. Most sounding rocket flights last for 15 to 20 minutes, and just five to six of those minutes are spent making observations from above the atmosphere, observations that can only be done in space. In RAISE's case, the extreme ultraviolet light the instruments observe can't penetrate Earth's atmosphere. After the flight, the payload parachutes to the ground, wh ere it can be recovered for use again.

This will be the RAISE mission's third flight, and the scientists have continuously updated its technology. For the upcoming flight, they have refurbished the detectors and updated the flight software, and the payload carries a new diffraction grating, which reflects light and separates it into its separate wavelengths.

The launch window for RAISE opens at 2:25 p.m. EDT at the White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces, New Mexico. The precise timing of the launch depends on weather conditions, and coordinated timing with other space observatories such as NASA's SDO and IRIS, as well as the joint Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency/NASA's Hinode.

RAISE is supported by NASA's Sounding Rocket Program at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. NASA's Heliophysics Division manages the Sounding Rocket Program.

Sounding Rocket Mission May 16 Providing Real-World Test for New Technologies

New rocket and spacecraft technology can be tested on the ground, such as in labs.  However, in some cases a new technology needs to be flight tested to see how it performs in the "real-world" environment.

A NASA sounding rocket launch from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on May 16 will provide the flight testing needed for 24 experiments and new technologies.

The launch of a 56-foot tall Black Brant IX rocket is scheduled between 5:45 and 6:40 a.m. EDT and can be seen by residents on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland. Backup launch days are May 17 - 19.

Cathy Hesh, technology manager for the sounding rocket program office at Wallops, said, "Sounding rockets are not only used for conducting science missions but also provide an excellent platform for technology development.  While the flight is short in duration, enough flight time is provided to test the new technologies."

The SubTec-7 mission will test technologies, many of which were developed at Wallops, to improve the capabilities of sounding rockets for supporting science missions and also those that may be applied to spacecraft.

The primary goal of the flight is to test two capabilities for sounding rocket missions to improve payload recovery systems. The first is a shutter door system that will allow recovery of a telescope payload in water environments, expanding the capabilities for science research.

For example, launches from Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific Ocean would allow telescope observations from the southern hemisphere.  Currently, telescope missions are limited to land recovery locations such as the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, providing viewing from the northern hemisphere.

The second goal of the flight is to update the electronic and mechanical systems of the current recovery system whose heritage dates back to the 1970s. These updates also will decrease the system's length and weight, which will allow for comparable increases in science instruments that can be flown.

The nearly 1,200-pound payload is planned to be recovered. After an approximate 17-minute flight, the payload is expected to descend by parachute and land in the Atlantic Ocean about 106 miles from Wallops Island, Virginia.

In addition, electrical and other components are being tested, many for flight qualification, that will improve sounding rocket payload capabilities. These include a solar sensor, low cost star tracker, power supply, timer, command and uplink stack, receiver transmitter, inertial measurement unit and a solid state altimeter.

Also, three packages are being flight tested under NASA's Space  Technology Mission Directorate's Game Changing Development program. These tests include a carbon nanotube Composite Overwrap Pressure Vessel, a joint effort by NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama; a CubeSat test of ultra-lightweight materials from Orbital ATK, Dulles, Virginia; and a Mars Packing Efficiency Payload from NASA Langley.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 5 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight.  The rocket launch is expected to be seen throughout Chesapeake Bay region.

Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5:15 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites. Facebook Live coverage begins at 5:30 a.m.

Mastering the intricacies of controlling matter at the nanoscale level is part of a revolutionary quest to apply nanotechnology to benefit industrial processes. A key element of that technology is the use of carbon nanotubes.

Carbon nanotubes are small hollow tubes with diameters of 0.7 to 50 nanometers and lengths generally in the tens of microns. While ultra-small, carbon nanotubes offer big-time attributes.

For instance, materials can be manufactured that exhibit superior strength but are still extremely lightweight. Think in terms of 200 times the strength and five times the elasticity of steel. For good measure, add in that they offer highly-efficient electrical and thermal conductivity.
[свернуть]
Reduce mass, improve performance
Спойлер
No wonder then that NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) is keenly interested in nanotechnology – an approach that can reduce the mass and improve the performance of aerospace systems.

For example, NASA computer modeling analysis has shown that composites using carbon nanotube reinforcements could lead to a 30 percent reduction in the total mass of a launch vehicle.

"No single technology would have that much of an impact to reduce the mass of a launch vehicle by that much," explains Michael Meador, Program Element Manager for Lightweight Materials and Manufacturing at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. "I'm not trying to be cliché, but that is a game changer!"
[свернуть]
Flight testing
Soon-to-fly hardware will test the tensile properties of a carbon nanotube fiber-based composite tank over that of conventional carbon fiber epoxy composites. A Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessel – COPV for short – will take to the skies aboard a sounding rocket launched from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on May 16.

"We're going to use the COPV as part of a cold-gas thruster system," Meador explains, noting that this involves moving the rocket's payload during its flight, as well as spinning up the payload to improve the rocket's aerodynamics during its descent to Earth. "We are one experiment in that payload, but it's a pioneering flight. This is first time that carbon nanotube-based composites have been flight-tested in a structural component," he said.

NASA-industry collaboration
Спойлер
The COPV project has involved several NASA centers – Glenn Research Center, Langley Research Center, the Marshall Space Flight Center – as well as industry.

NASA collaborated with Nanocomp in Merrimack, New Hampshire to make nanotube yarns and sheets, with the space agency developing specialized processing methods to fabricate COPVs.

"We were interested not just in developing high-strength composites from carbon nanotube yarns but also in demonstrating their performance by building an actual component and flight testing it," Meador adds. "The COPV flight test will go a long way in showing that these materials are ready for use in future NASA missions."
[свернуть]
Nanotube yarns
Спойлер
The suborbital rocket flight of a COPV is a first step, explains Emilie Siochi, a research materials engineer at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. "This COPV represents the first large item that we've built" by turning nanotube yarns into composites. Early on at the start of the initiative, she says carbon nanotube fiber material was only available in small quantities. That needed to change.

"We had to improve the properties, improve the quality and the quantity," Siochi points out. The NASA-industry relationship was invaluable to scale up the material for space agency use, she says, and qualifying the COPV for a flight test has assisted in maturing the technology too.

"There's potential for the structural properties of carbon nanotubes to be much stronger than carbon fiber composites, now the state of the art for structural material," Siochi says. "So if it's stronger, we'll be able to build lighter structures needed for access to space."
[свернуть]
Investment payoff
Спойлер
Meador sees a bright and long-lasting future for carbon nanotube materials.

"When we first started to get into nanotechnology research we were looking at wh ere did it make sense for NASA to invest...where could a huge payoff be for the agency, be it in weight savings, performance, or reduced power consumption," Meador suggests.

There's more work to be done in terms of improving the material's mechanical properties, as well as fabricating the yarn fiber in quantities to make it competitive with conventional carbon fiber.

"There's a big payoff, not just for aerospace applications," Meador observes. Use of carbon nanotube materials, say in cutting down the weight of ground transportation vehicles, could lead to a huge savings from less fuel consumption and also lessening carbon dioxide emissions. Likewise, the insertion of the technology into aircraft is another area that deserves further attention, he adds.

"We're not looking at magic materials. Rather, we're finding that when you get down to the nanoscale, there are certain features of materials at that scale that give rise to new properties, new physics that you don't see above that scale," Meador concludes. "And that's what it's all about. Seeing how you can control and exploit those properties."

Witnessing a rocket launch is a special occasion. Watching a rocket launch with materials you made go up into the sky is priceless.

That's how it felt for researchers from NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, and students from Virginia Tech and the University of Central Florida as they watched a sounding rocket launch on Tuesday, May 16 from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. On board: Mars rover concepts designed by the students.

"Very few students get the opportunity to design something, put it on a NASA rocket and fly it," said Jamshid Samareh, ‎research engineer at NASA Langley's Systems Analysis and Concepts Directorate (SACD), who assisted the students.

Funded through NASA's SACD Internal Research and Development (IRAD) program, the project saw more than 30 Virginia Tech students and one Central Florida student conceptualize, design and build 3-D printed test models of deployable Mars rovers.

The Mars rover concept has its roots in recreational vehicles that have elements that can fold, going with the theme that collapsible items make for easier transport to Mars. This concept has pop-out sections like RVs that would deploy once on Mars.

"It's always fun when practical solutions necessitate creativity – not to mention it always looks cool!" said Central Florida student J.T. Madigan.

The test models were launched on a 56-foot-tall Black Brant IX sounding rocket as part of the SubTec-7 payload mission.

The Mars RV rover concepts were part of the nearly 1,200-pound payload, which flew to an altitude of about 154 miles before descending by parachute and landing in the Atlantic Ocean to be recovered. SubTec-7 provided a flight test for more than 20 technologies to improve sounding rocket and spacecraft capabilities.

A sounding rocket's overall time in space is brief, typically five to 20 minutes, and at a lower speed than vehicles designed to go into orbit or beyond. The short time and lower speed are more than adequate (in some cases they are ideal) to carry out a successful scientific experiment.

Solving a packaging problem

Samareh has worked on many projects in his time at Langley, and says that getting materials to the Red Plant safely and efficiently is one of the bigger challenges.

"Part of the problem we keep running into is packaging," he said. "We have to carry a lot of payloads – rovers, habitats and such. We want to package them on top of the launch vehicle."

That problem-solving drive led to teams of undergraduate and graduate students from Virginia Tech and Central Florida to work on this project on campus with the support of Langley researchers.

The researchers and students designed 18 Mars rover concepts using Computer-Aided Design, or CAD, software.  Four of those designs were fabricated, assembled and tested before they were delivered to Wallops for flight on the sounding rocket.

"I have always thought of mass to be the limiting factor in space travel," said Virginia Tech student Alex Matta, who was also the team's graduate advisor. "Participation in this project led me to realize that minimizing volume of the cargo is important as well."

"A rover is one the big pieces that we want to be able to see if it can be packaged in any way," Samareh said.

The objective of the project is to develop rigid and deployable Mars rover concepts to improve lander packaging efficiency and aerodynamic stability during entry, descent and landing, and aerocapture, which is a flight maneuver that inserts a spacecraft into orbit around a planet or moon by using the destination's atmosphere like a brake.

Previous concepts for rovers on Mars from decades ago were not the sleek designs of today – they were big, bulky and heavy, something Samareh did not want to recreate.

"They're not realistic," he said. "They cannot be efficiently packed."

Evolution of the deployable Mars rover design started simple and changed to meet certain requirements, such as the height, width and weight needed to fit on a launch vehicle while taking up as little space as possible.

"Real estate on any type of launch is valuable, so I think it's awesome that such a novel project was given the opportunity to flight test hardware," Madigan said.

Samareh encouraged the students to come up with all of the crazy ideas they could so they could pick a few and specifically work on them.

"They come up with these ideas that I cannot come up with," he said. "They have a different mentality. That worked out nicely."

The Mars RV rover concepts also received recognition outside of NASA, winning first place in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Region I Student Paper Conference for the Undergraduate Team category in April.

When all was said and done, seeing the students' faces at the launch at Wallops was "the biggest payoff," Samareh said, adding that there is not only value in the designs, but also in getting students involved with NASA and motivated on a deeper level for space flight.

"There are things we learned from them," he said, "and there are things they learned from us."

ЦитатаNASA Sounding Rocket will Release Early Morning Artificial Clouds Lighting up the Mid-Atlantic Coast May 31

Press Release From: Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.wff.nasa.gov/)
Posted: Wednesday, May 24, 2017

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/115347.jpg)

The early morning skies along the mid-Atlantic coast will light up with luminescent clouds as NASA tests a new system that supports science studies of the ionosphere and aurora with a sounding rocket launch May 31 from the Wallops Flight Facility on the eastern shore of Virginia. Backup launch days are June 1 through 6.

During the flight of a two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket between 4:25 and 4:42 a.m. EDT, ten canisters about the size of a soft drink can will be deployed in the air, 6 to 12 miles away from the 670-pound main payload.

The canisters will deploy between 4 and 5.5 minutes after launch blue-green and red vapor forming artificial clouds. These clouds or vapor tracers allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space.

The development of the multi-canister or ampule ejection system will allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously allowed when deploying the vapor just from the main payload.
Спойлер
Ground cameras will be stationed at Wallops and in Duck, North Carolina, to view the vapor tracers. Clear skies are preferred, but not required, at both sites for the launch to occur.

The vapor tracers are formed through the interaction of barium, strontium and cupric-oxide. The tracers will be released at altitudes 96 to 124 miles high and pose absolutely no hazard to residents along the mid-Atlantic coast.

The vapor tracers could be visible from New York to North Carolina and westward to Charlottesville, Virginia.

The total flight time for the mission is expected to be about 8 minutes.  The payload will land in the Atlantic Ocean about 90 miles from Wallops Island and will not be recovered.

The NASA Visitor Center at Wallops will open at 3:30 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight.

Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 3:45 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook and Twitter sites.

Smartphone users can download the "What's Up at Wallops" app, which contains information on the launch as well as a compass showing the precise direction for launch viewing.

More information on the NASA sounding rocket missions and the use of vapor tracers in science research is available at:

ЦитатаUPDATE (5 a.m., June 4): NASA Postpones Sounding Rocket Launch from Wallops

The launch of a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket scheduled for June 4 from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility has been postponed due to clouds impacting the ability to test a new ampoule ejection system designed to support studies of the ionosphere and aurora.

While the launch window runs through June 6, forecast weather is not conducive for supporting the test mission through the remainder of the window. The launch is now scheduled for no earlier than June 11, pending range availability.

NASA has two ground stations—at Wallops and Duck, N.C.—to view blue-green and red artificial clouds that will be produced as part of the test. Clear skies are required at one of the two ground stations for this test.

The June 4 attempt was the fourth for this mission. The first two attempts were scrubbed due to winds and clouds. The third attempt was scrubbed due to boats in the launch hazard area.

The multi-canister ampoule ejection system flying on this mission will allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously able.

Canisters will deploy between 4 and 5.5 minutes after launch releasing blue-green and red vapor to form artificial clouds. These clouds, or vapor tracers, allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space. The clouds may be visible along the mid-Atlantic coastline from New York to North Carolina.

More information on the new date and time will be released when available; updates will be posted to www.nasa.gov/wallops (http://www.nasa.gov/wallops).

ЦитатаWallops launch of sounding rocket to provide light show
June 12, 2017 by Chris Bergin

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/209198.jpg)

A Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket is set to provide people on the mid-Atlantic coast with a luminescent cloud light show on Monday night. The sounding rocket – set for launch from Wallops Flight Research Facility – will help NASA test a new system that supports science studies of the ionosphere and aurora.
 
Sounding Rocket Launch:
Спойлер
The launch has been delayed a few times, first due to unacceptable weather and the most recent – on Sunday night – due to a boat in the range.

The Terrier-Malemute launch vehicle is a high-performance two-stage vehicle used for payloads weighing less than 400 pounds.

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/209176.jpg)

The first stage booster consists of a Terrier MK 12 Mod 1 rocket motor with four 340 square inch fin panels arranged in a cruciform configuration. The Terrier booster has an overall diameter of 18 inches.

For a payload weight of 200 pounds, the longitudinal acceleration during the boost phase is 26g's. The second stage propulsion unit is a Thiokol Malemute TU-758 rocket motor which is designed especially for high altitude research rocket applications. The external diameter of the Malemute is 16 inches.

The average thrust is 9,604 pounds. The maximum thrust level is approximately 14,200 pounds which results in a maximum longitudinal acceleration during second stage burning of 32g's for a 200 pound payload.

Liftoff weight of the Terrier-Malemute launch vehicle, less payload, is approximately 3260 pounds. This vehicle is usually rail launched and can be accommodated at most established launch ranges.

During the flight of a two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket, 10 canisters about the size of a soft drink can will be deployed in the air, 6 to 12 miles away from the 670-pound main payload.

The canisters will deploy between 4 and 5.5 minutes after launch forming blue-green and red artificial clouds. These clouds, or vapor tracers, allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space.

The development of the multi-canister ampoule ejection system will allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously allowed when deploying the tracers just from the main payload.

Ground cameras will be stationed at Wallops and in Duck, North Carolina, to view the vapor tracers.

Clear skies are required at one of the two ground stations for this test.

The vapor tracers are formed through the interaction of barium, strontium and cupric-oxide. The tracers will be released at altitudes 96 to 124 miles high and pose no hazard to residents along the mid-Atlantic coast.

The blue-green and red vapor tracers may be visible from New York to North Carolina and westward to Charlottesville, Virginia. These clouds, or vapor tracers, allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space.

The total flight time for the mission is expected to be about 8 minutes. The payload will land in the Atlantic Ocean about 90 miles from Wallops Island and will not be recovered.

Nighttime Rocket Launch To Create Colorful Clouds in Space

UPDATE: June 12--NASA Postpones Sounding Rocket Launch

The launch of a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket scheduled for June 12 from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility has been postponed due to clouds impacting the ability to test a new ampoule ejection system designed to support studies of the ionosphere and aurora.

The launch is now scheduled for Tuesday, June 13, with a launch window from 9:04 to 9:19 p.m.

NASA has two ground stations—at Wallops and Duck, N.C.—to view blue-green and red artificial clouds that will be produced as part of the test. Clear skies are required at one of the two ground stations for this test. Clouds obscured the viewing area at both viewing sites for the June 12 launch attempt.

The June 12 attempt was the sixth for this mission. Previous scrubs have been due to a variety of issues, such as high winds, clouds, and boats in the hazard area.

НАСА не удалось запустить ракету для создания цветных облаков

Во вторник, 13 июня, НАСА в седьмой раз пыталось запустить ракету, создающую цветные облака для научного эксперимента. Но запуску снова помешала погода. Специалисты продолжают следить за метеоусловиями и совещаться о времени следующей попытки. Возможно, она состоится в эту пятницу.

Изначально ракета должна была стартовать с космодрома Уоллопс (штат Вирджиния, США) 31 мая. Но в тот раз и в течение последующих двух недель взлету все время что-то мешает — то высокая облачность, то сильный ветер, то близко подплывшая лодка.


На борту геофизической ракеты содержится 10 контейнеров с химикатами, которые будут выпущены в атмосферу через 4 минуты после старта и раскрасят небо от Нью-Йорка до Северной Каролины цветными облаками, называемыми «паровыми трассерами».


Эксперимент направлен на изучение ионосферы, полярных сияний и проверку новой системы мультивыбросов. Его суть заключается в отслеживании движения частиц в небе с помощью «паровых индикаторов», которые образуются при взаимодействии бария, стронция и оксида меди.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 5 a.m. EDT on launch day for viewing the flight.  Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5:30 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites. Facebook Live coverage begins at 5:45 a.m. The rocket launch is expected to be seen from the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland.

Smartphone users can download the "What's Up at Wallops" app for information on the launch as well as a compass showing the precise direction for launch viewing.

The June rocket will carry 23 experiments (measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation counts) from the RockOn! program, nine experiments from the RockSat-C program and more than 80 small cubes with experiments developed by middle school students in 49 states as part of the Cubes in Space program, a partnership between idoodlelearning inc. and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

After flying to nearly 73 miles altitude, the payload will land via a parachute in the Atlantic Ocean wh ere it will be recovered by boat. The participants should have their experiments returned to them later in the day to begin their data analysis.

Joyce Winterton, Wallops senior advisor for education and leadership development, said, "We look forward each year to Rocket Week and the students and educators who come to Wallops with an enthusiasm to learn the skills to advance their careers and instruction to advance those of younger students."

Conducted with the Colorado (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/) and Virginia (http://www.vsgc.odu.edu/) Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its tenth year, RockSat-C its ninth and WRATS is in its seventh year.

"The longevity of these programs shows the continued interest from students and educators, "said Phil Eberspeaker, chief of the NASA Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) Office at Wallops. "Participants receive hands-on instruction, personal attention and the opportunity to work with career "rocket scientists" -- engineers and technicians who work on rockets on a daily basis."

In RockOn! the participants receive instruction on the basics required in building and developing a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere they design and build an experiment for rocket flight during the school year.

Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium, said, "The partnership with NASA has led to excellent learning opportunities for the participants in the RockOn! and RockSat-C programs.  More than 500 students and instructors, including this years' attendees, have participated in the 10-years RockOn! has been conducted."

WRATS works with high school teachers to show them the basics of rocketry and how to take what they learn into the classroom. The 20 participants from Virginia, Maryland,  New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Kentucky, Tennessee, Delaware, and Oklahoma will receive instruction on the basics of rocketry including Newton's Laws, fundamentals of electronics, drag and propulsion. This instruction will be applied to hands-on learning activities including building and launching model rockets.

The RockOn!, RockSat and WRATS programs are supported by the NASA Sounding Rocket Program. RockOn! also is supported by NASA's Office of Education (http://www.nasa.gov/education) and NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program in partnership with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, as well as the program participants.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland. Orbital ATK provides mission planning, engineering services and field operations for the NASA Sounding Rocket Operations Contract. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding rocket program for the agency.

RockOn! and RockSat-C are part of Rocket Week at Wallops. Nearly 130 students and instructors participated in the two programs this week conducted in partnership with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia.

In RockOn!, the participants receive instruction on the basics required in building and developing a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere they design and build an experiment for flight.

Through RockOn! 23 experiments measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation were flown.  Nine experiments were flown through RockSat-C involving more 13 institutions.

In addition to the RockOn! And RockSat-C experiments, more than 80 small cubes with experiments developed by middle school students in 49 states as part of the Cubes in Space program were flown through a partnership between idoodlelearning inc and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

The flight marked the tenth mission through the RockOn! program and the ninth for RockSat-C. In its 10-year history, students and instructors from 39 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia have participated in the program.

Ryan Schrenk from Capitol Technology University in Washington, D.C. said, "As the principal investigator and lead engineer on a previous successful sounding rocket mission, after attending the RockOn workshop I was impressed with how much there was to learn. I was able to hone skills and master techniques that I thought I already knew. I was also impressed by how much my students are able to absorb in such a short amount of time. My students came thinking they were lacking the necessary skillsets and knowledge and now express great confidence in their ability to become successful engineers and contributors to the missions they fly."

In addition to RockOn! And RockSat-C participants, Rocket Week also included 20 high school educators from across the country in the Wallops Rocket Academy for Teachers. During the week, these teachers have been receiving instruction on the basics of rocketry including Newton's Laws, fundamentals of electronics, drag and propulsion. This instruction is applied to hands-on learning activities, including building and launching model rockets, that can be used in the classroom.

The RockOn!, RockSat and WRATS programs are supported by the NASA Sounding Rocket Program. RockOn! also is supported by NASA's Office of Education (http://www.nasa.gov/education) and NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program in partnership with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, as well as the program participants.

NASA-Funded CHESS Mission Will Check Out the Space Between Stars

Deep in space between distant stars, space is not empty. Instead, there drifts vast clouds of neutral atoms and molecules, as well as charged plasma particles called the interstellar medium — that may, over millions of years, evolve into new stars and even planets. These floating interstellar reservoirs are the focus of the NASA-funded CHESS sounding rocket (https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sounding-rockets/missions/index.html) mission, which will check out the earliest stages of star formation.

CHESS — short for the Colorado High-resolution Echelle Stellar Spectrograph — is a sounding rocket payload that will fly on a Black Brant IX suborbital sounding rocket early in the morning of June 27, 2017. CHESS measures light filtering through the interstellar medium to study the atoms and molecules within, which provides crucial information for understanding the lifecycle of stars.

Floating clouds of the interstellar medium are the focus of the NASA-funded CHESS sounding rocket mission, which will check out the earliest stages of star formation. Here, the CHESS payload is integrated with the sounding rocket before launch.

"The interstellar medium pervades the galaxy," said Kevin France, the CHESS principle investigator at the University of Colorado, Boulder. "When massive stars explode as supernovae, they expel this raw material. It's the insides of dead stars, turning into the next generation of stars and planets."

CHESS is a spectrograph, which provides information on how much of any given wavelength of light is present. It will train its eye at Beta Scorpii — a hot, brightly shining star in the Scorpius constellation well-positioned for the instrument to probe the material between the star and our own solar system. As light fr om Beta Scorpii streams toward Earth, atoms and molecules — including carbon, oxygen and hydrogen — block the light to varying degrees along the way.

Scientists know which wavelengths are blocked by what, so by looking at how much light reaches the space around Earth, they can assess all sorts of details about the space it travelled through to get there. CHESS data provides observations such as which atoms and molecules are present in space, their temperatures and how fast they're moving.

The scientists also use CHESS data to evaluate how the interstellar cloud is structured, which can help them pinpoint where it stands in the process of star formation. It's still not known exactly how long it takes for this material to be incorporated into new stars. But scientists know dense clouds can pave the way for the collapse at the very beginning of star formation.

The flight of a sounding rocket is a short one; CHESS will fly for about 16 minutes total. Just six-and-a-half of those minutes are spent making observations between 90 and 200 miles above the surface — observations that can only be made in space, above the atmosphere, which the far-ultraviolet light that CHESS observes can't penetrate. After the flight, the payload parachutes to the ground, wh ere it can be recovered for future flights.

This is the third flight for the CHESS payload in the past three years, and the mission's most detailed survey yet. The scientists have used each to trial and improve the technology; the upcoming flight sports an upgraded diffraction grating, which reflects light and separates it into its different wavelengths.

"A more efficient grating means the instrument is that many times more sensitive," France said. "Compared to the first flight of CHESS, this third incarnation is about eight times more sensitive."

By flying rapidly developing instruments on relatively inexpensive sounding rockets, scientists are not only able to acquire high-quality science data, but also test and mature their instruments toward possible spaceflight. According to France, the CHESS instrument serves as a spectrograph prototype for NASA's LUVOIR (https://asd.gsfc.nasa.gov/luvoir/) concept.

"Supporting technology and suborbital flight projects today directly translates into lower risk and shorter development time for NASA's large missions in the next two decades," France said.

The launch window for CHESS opens at 1:10 a.m. EDT at the White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces, New Mexico. Precise timing of the launch will depend on weather conditions.

CHESS is supported through NASA's Sounding Rocket Program conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility, which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Orbital ATK provides mission planning, engineering services and field operations for the NASA Sounding Rocket Operations Contract.

The early morning skies along the mid-Atlantic coast were lit up by luminescent clouds as NASA tested a new system to support science studies of the ionosphere and aurora, with a sounding rocket launch June 24 from the Wallops Flight Facility on the eastern shore of Virginia. During the flight of a two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket, 10 canisters about the size of a soft drink can were deployed in the air, 6 to 12 miles away from the 670-pound main payload. The deployed canisters formed blue-green and red artificial clouds, or vapor tracers which allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space. The development of the multi-canister ampoule ejection system is also designed to allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously allowed when deploying the tracers just from the main payload. The vapor tracers were expected to be visible from New York to North Carolina and westward to Charlottesville, Virginia – with the total flight time for the mission expected to be about 8 minutes.

NASA Wallops Rocket Launch Lights up the Mid-Atlantic Coast
 
July 4 fireworks came early when a NASA Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket was successfully launched at 4:25 a.m., Thursday, June 29, from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
Спойлер
During the 8-minute flight, 10 canisters about the size of a soft drink can were ejected in space, 6 to 12 miles away from the 670-pound main payload.

The canisters deployed blue-green and red vapor that formed artificial clouds visible from New York to North Carolina.

During an ionosphere or aurora science mission, these clouds, or vapor tracers, allow scientists on the ground to visually track particle motions in space.

The development of the multi-canister ampoule ejection system will allow scientists to gather information over a much larger area than previously possible when deploying the tracers just from the main payload.

The rocket, after being delayed multiple times over the last 30 days, flew to an altitude of about 118 miles.

Wallops received nearly 2,000 reports and photos of the cloud sightings from areas as far north as New York, south to North Carolina, and inland throughout Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and points in-between. Submitted photos can be viewed on the Wallops Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF/).

NASA's Wallops Flight Facility provides agile, low-cost flight and launch range services to meet government and commercial sector needs for accessing flight regimes worldwide from the Earth's surface to the moon. Wallops' flight assets ranging from research aircraft, unmanned aerial systems and high-altitude balloons to suborbital and orbital rockets provide a full-range of capability, while operational launch range and airfield capabilities meet ongoing and emerging needs in the science, aerospace, defense, and commercial industries.

It starts with an idea.
Спойлер
How to assess vegetation health on Earth from space observations? Develop a small re-entry spacecraft. Create an autonomous robotic arm for activities in space. Capture and measure high energy particles in space. The ideas are limitless.

In addition to attending classes, labs and studying, university and community college students then put in long hours to turn that idea into a reality. The goal, build an instrument or experiment for spaceflight that will test the idea.
[свернуть]
Students from 15 diverse institutions across the United States will get an opportunity to fly their instruments and experiments on a NASA two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute suborbital sounding rocket Aug.12, 2017, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The launch of the 44-foot tall rocket is scheduled between 5:30 and 9:30 a.m. EDT. The backup launch dates are August 13 and 14.
Спойлер
After flying to around 91miles altitude, the payload, with the experiments, will descend by parachute and is expected to land 15 minutes after launch in the Atlantic Ocean, about 64 miles off the Virginia coast. The experiments and any stored data will be provided to the students later in the day following sea recovery of the payload.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 4:30 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight. The rocket launch is expected to be only seen from the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland.

Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites. Facebook Live coverage begins at 5:15 a.m.

Smartphone users can download the "What's Up at Wallops" app, which contains information on the launch as well as a compass showing the precise direction for launch viewing.

The experiments are being flown through the RockSat-X program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/). RockSat-X is the most advance of NASA's three-phase sounding rocket program for students.  The RockOn launches are at the entry level, then progress to the intermedia level RockSat-C missions and then RockSat-X.

Participating institutions in this flight are the University of Colorado, Boulder; the University of Puerto Rico; Virginia Tech, Blacksburg; University of Kentucky, Lexington; Capitol Technology University, Laurel, Maryland; University of Maryland, College Park; Oregon State University, Corvallis; and University of Hawai'i Community Colleges at the Honolulu, Kaua'i, and Windward campuses.

Additional participants include a collaboration of West Virginia institutions consisting of West Virginia University, Morgantown; Marshall University, Huntington; West Virginia State University, Institute; West Virginia Tech, Beckley; Fairmont State; and NASA's IV & V Facility in Fairmont.

Phil Eberspeaker, chief of the Sounding Rocket Program Office at Wallops, said, "The RockSat-X program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to expand the knowledge gained in the classroom through conceptualizing, designing and building experiments and instruments for spaceflight. The students are able to apply the skills sought by their future employers in science, technology, math and engineering fields."

RockSat-X is part of a three-tier program that introduces secondary institution students to building experiments for space flight and requires them to expand their skills to develop and build more complex projects as they progress through the programs. RockSat-X experiments are flown approximately 20 miles higher in altitude than those in the RockOn and RockSat-C programs, providing more flight time in space.

"This will be the seventh flight for RockSat-X and has provided the opportunity for hundreds of undergraduate students to design and build spaceflight projects. "said Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium. "RockSat-C just completed its ninth flight in June.  Through the RockSat programs, students from 53 higher education institutions, have been able to participate in a spaceflight project. This experience is invaluable for a student."

The experiments being flown on this RockSat-X flight are:

University of Hawaii Community Colleges

Four community colleges in Hawaii have teamed up to encourage students to explore STEM-based careers. The experiment's purpose is to demonstrate proof of concept for multiple experiments.  The primary experiment is to eject a naphthalene sublimation rocket and capture imaging of this deployment. The secondary experiments onboard will evaluate a 9-axis IMU motion tracking device and take distance data of the sublimation rocket using an infrared rangefinder.

Capitol Technology University and the University of Maryland

This experiment comprises two experiments from two different universities. CTU is using this RockSat-X mission as a proof of concept for a 1U CubeSat. Their experiment is to demonstrate the functionality of Iridium 9603 SBD and will record video during flight using a VR camera. The University of Maryland's portion of the experiment will collect experimental data to validate computational tribocharging models of grain interactions.

Oregon State University

This experiment is a proof of concept for an autonomous robotic arm.  Their arm will deploy and make contact with predetermined targets around the payload in microgravity conditions.  They will also record video of this function.  The team hopes that this can demonstrate ability for robotic arms to create assemblies, autonomous repairs, and preforming experiments in space.

Virginia Tech

The Virginia Tech team is demonstrating the compatibility of software defined radio on different communication frequencies. The experiment will receive ADS-B and AIS transmissions from aircraft and boats to show that is a more flexible and efficient system than radar tracking. The team will also transmit the received data to a mobile ground station at the launch site as well as a ground station located at their campus in Blacksburg.

West Virginia Collaboration

There are five different individual experiments from this team.  One experiment captures near-infrared and long-wave infrared imaging of Earth's surface to distinguish landmass and potentially work as a vegetation health assessment. The second experiment is a re-entry probe that will deploy and transmit acceleration, temperature, and rotation data back to the main experiment sections. The third experiment detects ionized particles. The fourth experiment detects high energy particles and observe space effects on DNA, and it will also be studying ozone during re-entry. The fifth experiment tests an autonomous pointing determination and target acquisition system.

University of Kentucky

This team's experiment is to increase the technology readiness level of a small entry spacecraft by demonstrating data acquisition, communication, and thermal protection system designs. Their experiment deploys a re-entry capsule to record and transmit temperature data in order to test the thermal protection system on the re-entry probe. The experiment also tests and verifies their deployment method and release mechanism in the space environment. The team will record video of the deployment to verify this aspect.

University of Colorado Boulder

The University of Colorado Boulder Rapid EXpandable Boom or REX-B team's mission is to characterize the deployment of a slit-tube, strain energy deployment boom in a microgravity environment. The mission will collect data on the temperature and humidity conditions of the boom prior to its deployment as well as acceleration, pressure, and temperature data throughout the flight. The team will also take two high resolution videos using two GoPros and various low-resolution pictures at various points during the flight. The team's goal is to collect useful data for their industry partner to help them in the development of future deployable booms for future space applications.

University of Puerto Rico

The experiment will allow the detection of high density particles found within 80-100 miles (130-165 kilometers) above Earth's sea level, in order to study their physical and chemical properties. To meet this objective, the team will use UPR's early micrometeorite impact detection system, collector, and various other measuring devices. This project could aid in developing a clearer image of space particles, and potentially lead to the discovery and subsequent genome sequencing of organic materials found within the aforementioned particles.  This year, the UPR experiment focuses on cross-contamination mitigation through the use of plasma gas decontamination. They will also sequence any nucleic acids found in the collected micrometeorites.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland. Orbital ATK provides mission planning, engineering services and field operations through the NASA Sounding Rocket Operations Contract. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding-rocket program for the agency.

RockSat-X Successfully Launches fr om NASA Wallops

The RockSat-X student payload was successfully launched on a NASA Terrier-Improved Malemute suborbital sounding rocket at 5:30 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 13, from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The payload flew to an altitude of 94 miles during its suborbital flight. It descended by parachute and landed in the Atlantic Ocean wh ere it was recovered.

The payload will be returned to Wallops later today, Aug. 13; the experiments will be removed and returned to the student teams.

More than 100 students from 15 universities and community colleges from across the Unites States participating in RockSat-X were on hand to witness the launch.

The experiments were flown through the RockSat-X program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/). RockSat-X is the most advance of NASA's three-phase sounding rocket program for students. The RockOn launches are at the entry level then progress to the intermediate level RockSat-C missions, culminating with the advanced RockSat-X.

The three-tier program introduces secondary institution students to building experiments for space flight and requires them to expand their skills to develop and build more complex projects as they progress through the programs. RockSat-X experiments are flown approximately 20 miles higher in altitude than those in the RockOn and RockSat-C programs, providing more flight time in space.

The next launch from Wallops is a NASA Black Brant IX suborbital sounding rocket in mid-September carrying a technology development payload.

NASA Mission to Study Atmospheric Disturbances fr om Marshall Islands

A NASA rocket mission to study disturbances in the upper atmosphere that interfere with communication and technology systems will form night-time white artificial clouds visible by residents of the Republic of the Marshall Islands during two rocket flights to occur between August 29 and September 9.
Спойлер
The Waves and Instabilities fr om a Neutral Dynamo, or WINDY, mission will study a phenomenon that occurs in the ionosphere – a layer of charged particles in the upper atmosphere. Known as equatorial spread F, or ESF, these disturbances occur after sunset at latitudes near the equator in part of the ionosphere known as the F region. The disturbances interfere with radio communication, navigation and imaging systems and pose a hazard to technology and society that depends on it.

The WINDY mission consists of two NASA suborbital sounding rockets that will be launched nearly simultaneously in a window between 8 and 11 p.m. local time (4 and 7 a.m. EDT) Aug. 29 through Sep. 9 from Roi-Namur. The Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands is near the magnetic equator, wh ere post-sunset ionosphere storms are more intense, making the site an ideal location for these studies.

One rocket will carry a substance called tri-methyl aluminum, or TMA. This substance will form the white artificial clouds that glow in the night sky. Scientists on the ground photograph the movement of these clouds to measure the winds and energetic particles that are in motion in the upper atmosphere. The clouds are expected to be visible for about 30 minutes.

The first rocket launched, a two-stage 47-foot long Black Brant IX rocket, will carry and release both TMA and lithium.  The release of the lithium vapors is not visible to the naked-eye but can be viewed with special cameras on the ground.

The TMA is deployed between 50 and112 miles altitude while the lithium is deployed between 155 and 217miles altitude. Both substances, which are harmless to residents on the ground when released at these altitudes, move with the atmospheric winds and can therefore be used to determine the wind speeds and direction over the area wh ere these ionosphere storms are occurring.

TMA reacts spontaneously on contact with oxygen to produce a pale white glow visible from the ground. For the WINDY mission, sunlight reflected by the Moon, will illuminate lithium producing an emission that can be detected with cameras equipped with narrow-band filters. Using moonlight allows the launches to occur later in the evening when the critical ESF conditions occur.

The second rocket, a two-stage 36-foot long Terrier-Malemute, will be launched five minutes after the first rocket. The second rocket carries instruments to measure ionosphere densities and electric and magnetic fields present in these storms.

The ionosphere is defined as the layer of Earth's atmosphere that is ionized by solar and cosmic radiation.  Ionization occurs when incoming energetic radiation strips electrons from atoms and molecules, creating temporarily charged particles. The nighttime ionosphere has two layers E and F. Disturbances in the F layer, the layer studied by WINDY, degrade radio and radar signals at magnetic latitudes.  Predicting these disturbances ahead of time, could help improve the reliability of space-borne and ground-based communication systems.

WINDY attempts to answer questions about the origin of ESF by measuring how horizontal thermosphere winds influence the formation of ESF, as well as taking direct measurements of ionosphere densities and electric and magnetic fields inside these storms.

Data from the ARPA Long-Range Tracking and Instrumentation Radar, or ALTAIR, located on Kwajalein Atoll will play a key a role in the mission. ALTAIR is used to monitor the state of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere in order to determine when the large-scale disruptions occur and will tell the scientists when to launch the rockets.  ALTAIR also will be used to monitor the evolution of the ESF after the rockets launch.

WINDY is supported by researchers from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York; Clemson University, South Carolina; and Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

UPDATE – Sept. 11, 2017: NASA launched two sounding rockets Saturday, Sep. 9, supporting the Waves and Instabilities from a NeutralDynamo,or WINDY, mission from Roi-Namur, the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

A Black Brant IX sounding rocket was successfully launched at 7:34 a.m. EDT (11:34 p.m. local time) and was followed five minutes later by a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding. The first rocket flew to approximately 254-miles altitude and released its tri-methyl aluminum (TMA) and lithium, forming vapors to allow scientists to measure the winds and energetic particles that are in motion in the upper atmosphere. The flight was considered a success.

A Light in the Dark: NASA Sounding Rocket Probes the Dark Regions of Space

Though stars and galaxies fill our night sky, most of the matter in the universe resides in the dark voids in between. Spread out over unfathomable distances, this cold, diffuse gas between galaxies — called the intergalactic medium, or IGM for short — hardly emits any light, making it difficult to study.

Scientists plan to launch a sounding rocket for a fifteen-minute flight Oct. 30, 2017, equipped with special ultraviolet optics, which they hope will shed light on the nature of the IGM. The Dual-channel Extreme Ultraviolet Continuum Experiment, or DEUCE for short, plans to measure starlight from a pair of nearby hot stars in the constellation Canis Major, aiming to help researchers understand how the IGM got to its current state.

Scientists know that the IGM, which is mostly hydrogen, has been blasted with high-energy radiation, causing the electrons to break apart from their atoms — a process known as ionization. Many think intense ultraviolet starlight from star-forming galaxies is responsible for ionizing the universe, but not all agree this is the sole cause. Since Earth's atmosphere blocks ultraviolet light, it is impossible to study this type of radiation from the ground. Instead, scientists must capture this light from above the atmosphere, and sounding rockets — which provide an inexpensive alternative to space telescopes — are a practical option.

"DEUCE is about being able to better understand if and how star-forming galaxies ionized the early universe," said Nicholas Erickson, a graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder working with the project. "This ionizing light has never been measured accurately in hot stars, and DEUCE will make the first calibrated measurement of it, telling us the contribution stars could have had to helping ionize the universe."

Over two flights, DEUCE will look at two young, bright stars — first Beta Canis Major and later Epsilon Canis Major — using a telescope sensitive to ultraviolet light. These stars are close enough that their light reaches Earth before being fully absorbed by interstellar gas, allowing the scientists to measure the amount of starlight to see if it's enough to significantly contribute to the amount of ionized gas in the IGM.

"It's a hard measurement to make, because there still is neutral hydrogen between stars that is extremely effective at absorbing the starlight at these wavelengths," said Erickson. "To be seen at Earth, you need a really bright star that's close by, and there are only two stars that are viable candidates for this measurement."

DEUCE uses a microchannel plate detector — the largest ever flown in space — to measure the starlight. The mission, in addition to providing scientific data, will test this type of large UV detector for readiness in future large-scale space missions. DEUCE is scheduled to launch again in December 2018, to look at Epsilon Canis Major.

NASA rockets launched during the Alaskan winter typically explore the interaction of solar winds with Earth's atmosphere and the resulting auroras that dance across the night sky. However this winter, between January 15 - 31, 2018, NASA personnel and university researchers are traveling to the Poker Flat Research Range (PFRR) in Alaska to launch several rocket-borne investigations for other purposes.
Between January 15 - 31, 2018, scientists will launch four rockets to measure x-ray emissions from space and determine how large quantities of water could affect the upper atmosphere and form Polar Mesospheric clouds, or PMCs.

One rocket will carry a science investigation called the Diffuse X-rays from the Local galaxy, or DXL, mission. This investigation aims to study the sources of X-rays that hurtle towards Earth from elsewh ere in our galaxy. "Very low energy diffuse X-rays from space are believed to come from two sources," said Massimiliano Galeazzi, the principal investigator for the DXL mission from the University of Miami, Florida. "The first source is located outside our solar system and is generated by remnants of multiple supernovae explosions forming what is now called the Local Hot Bubble region of our galaxy. The second source is within the solar system and is generated by the solar wind charge exchange . DXL seeks to gain a better understanding of the nature and characteristics of these sources."

Launching from Alaska brings important benefits to DXL. A launch from a range near the Earth's magnetic pole allows researchers to take X-ray measurements closer to the region wh ere the solar magnetic field interacts with Earth's magnetic field – especially beneficial when measuring X-rays from solar wind charge exchange . Also, the Alaskan PFRR is unique among US rocket ranges in allowing researchers to wait on the launch pad, ready to fly, for an extended period of time while waiting for optimal conditions when there is a strong solar wind. The daily launch window for the DXL payload to wait for these conditions is between 6 and 9 a.m. EST.

Three additional rockets will be flown from PFRR in another completely different science investigation named the Super Soaker mission.  This investigation focuses on the formation and dynamics of Polar Mesospheric Clouds (PMCs). "PMCs are layers of microscopic ice particles that form near 53 miles altitude and are extremely sensitive to small variations in their environment." Said Irfan Azeem, Super Soaker principal investigator from Atmospheric and Space Technology Research Associates in Boulder, Colorado. "Because they are so sensitive to variations, PMCs are often used to try to quantify changes in the upper atmosphere over many decades. However, their use as indicators of long-term change is complex and controversial because they also respond to many other shorter term variations such as tides, stratospheric weather and space vehicle exhaust."

Super Soaker will attempt to measure the impact of short-term changes on PMCs and other atmospheric variables by releasing vapor into the upper atmosphere. "Water vapor is a common exhaust product of spaceflight traffic," Azeem said. "Super Soaker will fly to the upper atmosphere carrying about 50 gallons of water, about the amount in a bathtub. We will release the water canister at 53 miles, dispersing and vaporizing the water. We will measure the basic state of the upper atmosphere before, during and after the release to determine the impact. These measurements include temperature, winds and high-altitude layers of ice particles known as polar mesospheric clouds."Super Soaker will use three Terrier-Improved Orion suborbital sounding rockets (https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sounding-rockets/index.html) launched over a 32-minute duration. The launch window stretches from 9 a.m. to noon EST.

In order to determine the initial and final state of the upper atmosphere in this investigation, two of the three rockets carry trimethyl aluminum, or TMA, canisters and will be launched before the water release. The TMA vapor will be observed by cameras on the ground at various points in Alaska. The vapor clouds are a classic, well-developed sounding rocket technique to create markers in the upper atmosphere that enable scientists to obtain measurements of the upper atmospheric winds.  After the TMA is released and it reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere, it produces compounds that occur naturally in the atmosphere. It will be released at altitudes of 45-90 miles and never poses a hazard to the community or the environment.

A third, separate rocket to release water into the atmosphere will be after the two TMA release launches. Scientists will measure the dispersion of the water vapor and changes in temperature and PMC formation using various ground instruments, including a Rayleigh lidar operated by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, an Advanced Mesospheric Temperature Mapper from Utah State University in Logan.

Sounding Rocket Mission Will Trace Auroral Winds

Fr om the ground, the dance of the northern lights, or aurora borealis, can look peaceful. But those shimmering sheets of colored lights are the product of violent collisions between Earth's atmosphere and particles fr om the Sun.

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/207658.jpg) (https://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/thumbnails/image/aurora2_0.jpg)

The beautiful lights are just the visible product of these collisions — the kinetic and thermal energy released, invisible to the naked eye, are no less important. Understanding the contribution that aurora make to the total amount of energy that enters and leaves Earth's geospace system — referred to as auroral forcing — is one of the major goals of the NASA-funded Auroral Zone Upwelling Rocket Experiment, or AZURE. The more we learn about auroras, the more we understand about the fundamental processes that drive near-Earth space — a region that is increasingly part of the human domain, home not only to astronauts but also communications and GPS signals that can affect those of us on the ground on a daily basis.

AZURE is the first of eight sounding rocket missions launching over the next two years as part of an international collaboration of scientists known as The Grand Challenge Initiative – Cusp. These missions will launch from the Andøya and Svalbard rocket ranges in Norway to study the processes occurring inside the Earth's polar cusp — wh ere the planet's magnetic field lines bend down into the atmosphere and allow particles from space to intermingle with those of Earthly origin — and nearby auroral oval, which AZURE will focus on.
Спойлер
AZURE will study the flow of particles in the ionosphere, the electrically charged layer of the atmosphere that acts as Earth's interface to space, focusing specifically on the E and F regions. The E region — so-named by early radio pioneers that discovered the region was electrically charged, and so could reflect radio waves — lies between 56 to 93 miles above Earth's surface. The F region resides just above it, between 93 to 310 miles altitude.

The E and F regions contain free electrons that have been ejected from their atoms by the energizing input of the Sun's rays, a process called photoionization. After nightfall, without the energizing input of the Sun to keep them separated, electrons recombine with the positively charged ions they left behind, lowering the regions' overall electron density. The daily cycle of ionization and recombination makes the E and F regions especially turbulent and complex.

AZURE will focus specifically on measuring the vertical winds in these regions, which create a tumultuous particle soup that re-distributes the energy, momentum and chemical constituents of the atmosphere.

Existing wind measurements from ground-based instruments show evidence of significant structure at scales between 6 miles and 60 miles wide in both the charged particle drifts and the neutral winds. But so far, the in-situ scientific measurements of winds have been limited to a small set of altitudes — and already those measurements don't fit with what we would have predicted.

To better understand the forces at play, in early March the AZURE team will launch two sounding rockets near-simultaneously from the Andøya Space Center in Norway. Waiting to launch until the conditions are just right, the rockets will fly up into space, making measurements of the atmospheric density and temperature with instruments on the rockets and deploying visible tracers, trimethyl aluminum (TMA) and a barium/strontium mixture, which ionizes when exposed to sunlight.

These mixtures create colorful clouds that allow researchers to track the flow of neutral and charged particles, respectively. The tracers will be released at altitudes 71 to 155 miles high and pose no hazard to residents in the region.

By tracking the movement of these colorful clouds via ground-based photography and triangulating their moment-by-moment position in three dimensions, AZURE will provide valuable data on the vertical and horizontal flow of particles in two key regions of the ionosphere over a range of different altitudes.

Such measurements are critical if we are to truly understand the effects of the mysterious yet beautiful aurora. The results will be key to a better understanding of the effects of auroral forcing on the atmosphere, including how and wh ere the auroral energy is deposited.

Joyce Winterton, Wallops' senior advisor for education and leadership development, said, "The four universities were sel ected in 2016 to participate in the NASA Undergraduate Student Instrument Project or USIP. The teams are not only exploring projects that may impact future spaceflight but they are getting invaluable experience that will propel them into their future careers."

Participating universities and their projects are:
Спойлер
Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne: The flight will test a new wire insulation repair material in a microgravity, near vacuum environment. The test samples will be subjected to a series of tests after retrieval to inspect the material and verify effectiveness in the space environment.

University of Kentucky, Lexington: A small entry spacecraft will be deployed during flight to test and demonstrate a communications system, release mechanism and thermal protection system design for application in future research.

Utah State University, Logan: The flight will test an arc-ignition, green propellant CubeSat thruster system. During the flight test, measurements will be gathered in order to assess the potentially harmful effects of plume contamination on spacecraft optical sensors, external electronics and solar panels.

University of Nebraska - Lincoln: Partnering with NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, the team will test a deployable and retractable boom and solar blanket for space applications, including sounding rockets, CubeSats and small satellites.

NASA Rocket Experiments to Examine Lifecycle of Stars

NASA will launch two astronomy experiments to study how stars are born and how they die in the Milky Way galaxy this April from Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

The Water Recovery X-ray rocket, or WRX, is scheduled for launch April 4, 2018, and the Colorado High-resolution Echelle Stellar Spectrograph, or CHESS 4, on April 13. Both experiments will fly on NASA Black Brant IX sounding rockets.

The WRX mission targets the Vela supernova rem­nant and measures soft X-rays emanating from this region. The Vela supernova remnant was created when a star, greater than 10 times the mass of the Sun, collapsed and then exploded as a supernova, the final stage of massive stellar evolution.
Спойлер
Supernova explosions are one of the most energetic events in the universe, and play a role in re­cycling material within galaxies. They are responsible for the creation and distribution of elements -- such as, oxygen, silicon, neon, iron, nickel, and magnesium among others -- into the interstellar medium, thereby providing source material for the next generation of stars, planets and even organic chemistry.

The explosions are rarely seen in action in our galaxy, but evidence is left behind as a supernova remnant. Ejected mate­rial from the explosion travels at high speeds and the shockwave sweeps up interstellar material along the way, continuing to heat it to temperatures as high as 10 million Kelvin. These hot temperatures lead to emission of high energy electromagnetic radiation, such as X-rays, from the remnant.

"Supernova remnants in our galaxy are good to study due to their proximity, which makes them large, bright targets on the sky," said Randy McEntaffer, principal investigator of WRX at Penn State University, in University Park. "The WRX payload will investigate about 10 square degrees of emission located in the north central section of Vela with its diffuse X-ray spectrograph. This will provide a modest resolving power spectrum of this region that has yet to be spectroscopically explored."

WRX measurements will allow scientists to derive information about the conditions in the Vela supernova remnant such as the tem­perature, density, chemical composition, and ioniza­tion state. Using these characteristics, they will also be able to estimate the shock velocity near the remnant's limb, the age and type of the remnant, and the energy of the supernova.

WRX will be the first sounding rocket mission from Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, to use a newly developed NASA water recovery system for astronomical payloads. Most NASA astronomical suborbital rocket missions are conducted from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico which allows for land recovery of the highly valued payload. Both WRX and CHESS instruments have previously been flown from White Sands.

"As astronomers, the sky that we look at is dependent on the latitude of observation. As we go toward southern latitudes we open up the southern sky. At White Sands, Vela is at too low of an altitude for efficient observation. Being able to launch from Kwajalein with water recovery increases the number of our observation targets," said McEntaffer.

"The development of this water recovery system is important as it opens up future launch opportunities from remote southern sites to observe unique phenomena or astronomical objects inaccessible from northern launch ranges," said Kevin France, principal investigator for CHESS-4 at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

The CHESS-4 mission will study the interstellar me­dium, the matter between stars. The mission focuses on translucent clouds of gas, that provide the fundamental building blocks for stars and planets. These clouds have very low densities and the only way to study them is to measure how a cloud is affected by a star -- and its associated outpouring of stellar material, the stellar wind -- moving through it.

CHESS will point at the star Gamma Ara, in the constellation Ara. Gamma Ara displays an unusually powerful stellar wind.

"Gamma Ara possesses an unusually strong equatorial stellar wind that is injecting large amounts of material and kinetic energy into its immediate galactic environment," said France. "What is unique about CHESS-4, relative to its previous flights, is that we are interested in studying the molecular properties in the interaction between the wind and the local environment."

CHESS-4 will study the interaction of this stellar wind with the surrounding interstellar medium to study the excitation of atoms and molecules in the inter­face region. This allows the CHESS team to study the catalysts of galactic chemistry and the raw materials for future generations of stars and planets. The team will also quantify the temperature and motions of the clouds along the line of sight.

This iteration of CHESS also features an updated instrument – a re-tuned spectrograph – which provides approximately four to five times higher spectral resolution than previous incarnations. The higher resolution is ideal for observing the excited molecules against the background signal generated by the interstellar medium.

ЦитатаExos Aerospace prepares for first suborbital launch
by Jeff Foust (http://spacenews.com/author/jeff-foust/) — March 23, 2018

WASHINGTON — With a key test completed and a launch license in hand, Exos Aerospace is preparing for the first flight of its reusable suborbital rocket in April.

In a statement, the company said it completed a "hover test" of its Suborbital Autonomous Rocket with GuidancE, or SARGE, rocket at its Caddo Mills, Texas, facility March 17. In the test, the rocket, suspended from a crane, fired its engine to hover in place, demonstrating the performance of its propulsion, guidance, and other systems.

That test went as planned, said John Quinn, chief operating officer of Exos Aerospace. It also came a month after the company received a launch license from the Federal Aviation Administration's Office of Commercial Space Transportation, authorizing flights of SARGE from Spaceport America in New Mexico.
Спойлер
"We are excited to move two critical steps closer to launches at Spaceport America," Quinn said of the test and the FAA license.

With the successful test and the license, Exos is planning a first launch April 7 from Spaceport America, flying to an altitude of at least 80 kilometers. Preparations for the launch will begin in the week leading up to it, Quinn said, as the rocket and support personnel travel from Texas to New Mexico.

The rocket will be carrying payloads for customers, Quinn said, but did not disclose their names. One goal of the flight, he said, is to qualify to be a part of NASA's Flight Opportunities program, which contracts with several companies to fly suborbital research payloads. The program's current suborbital flight providers include Blue Origin, UP Aerospace and Virgin Galactic.

Exos is based on both technologies and people from Armadillo Aerospace, a company founded by video game developer John Carmack that competed for the Ansari X Prize for commercial human suborbital spaceflight in the early 2000s and later developed a series of suborbital vehicles, including an earlier version of the SARGE vehicle.

Carmack put Armadillo into what he called "hibernation" in 2013 after a flight of that predecessor vehicle, known as STIG-B, early that year. He said at the time that he no longer planned to fund the company out his own pocket. Exos acquired what it called the "mission critical" assets of Armadillo in early 2015, and a number of former Armadillo employees joined Exos.

Exos hopes to use SARGE to tap into what it believes to be significant demand for suborbital research, while also testing technology that could be used for a future orbital launch vehicle. "We look forward to enabling space research, manufacturing and educational opportunity for the world by providing frequent flights that provide fast and affordable access to space," Quinn said.

University Student Projects Launch fr om NASA Wallops

Four university student projects were successfully launched at 6:51:30 a.m. EDT, March 25, 2018, on a NASA suborbital sounding rocket from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket carried the projects to an altitude of 107 miles. The projects then descended by parachute, landing in the Atlantic Ocean. The projects were recovered and will be returned to the students for analysis.
Спойлер
The undergraduate student teams' projects from Utah State University, Logan; the University of Nebraska – Lincoln; the University of Kentucky, Lexington; and the Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne, were launched through the NASA Undergraduate Student Instrument Project or USIP.

"USIP gave students the opportunity to experience working in a research and development environment and learn about different aspects of taking an engineering project from conceptual design through fabrication and testing. Students gained skills in project management, design analysis and selection, fabrication, and assembly. The Nebraska USIP team also honed its interpersonal and writing skills through design reviews, monthly status reports, and required grant reporting," said Amy Price, a senior mechanical engineering student and team lead.

She said, "The University of Nebraska-Lincoln USIP team is comprised of multidisciplinary students providing a well-rounded project team. Throughout the two-year duration of the USIP project, 29 undergraduate students have worked on the project. This includes students from various disciplines within the College of Engineering such as biological systems, chemical, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering majors. In addition, there are math, physics, finance, and economics majors on the team."

"USIP has been a fantastic experience for the more than 46 University of Kentucky students who have been able to work on the project. The KRUPS Operational Re-entry Experimental Vehicle for Extensive Testing has been a great opportunity for participating in the NASA systems engineering process and for obtaining hands-on experience designing, building, integrating and testing the capsule's ejection mechanism and communication systems. A highlight so far was presenting the project to the NASA Deputy Administrator at the Spring 2018 Space Grant Conference," said Gabriel Myers, a senior mechanical engineering and physics major.

Myers added, "Through cooperation with engineers at NASA Wallops and elsewh ere, the group has been able to gain a degree of engineering intuition aiding the students in drawing connections between their classes and applying that knowledge."

Wallops managers serve as USIP technical advisors for these four cooperative agreements on behalf agency's Office of Education and the Science Mission Directorate. In 2016 NASA selected an additional 43 university experiments to fly on orbital and suborbital vehicles including rockets, aircraft, balloons and CubeSats through a cooperative agreement competition for members of NASA's 52 Space Grant Consortia and other eligible higher education institutions.

RH300 sounding rocket to be launched tomorrow in Kerala (https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/science/rh300-sounding-rocket-to-be-launched-tomorrow-in-kerala/articleshow/63632405.cms)

ЦитатаPTI|Apr 05, 2018, 09.52 PM IST
THIRUVANATHAPURAM: The RH300 sounding rocket, developed by Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) as part of a study to enrich available atmospheric data, would be launched from Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS), here tomorrow. 

This will be the 21st launch of RH300 sounding rocket, a release from VSSC said today. 

The launch, scheduled at 19.15 hrs, is part of a study undertaken by VSSC under the Sounding Rocket Experiment (SOUREX) programme, which utilises the RH-300 MKII sounding rocket to study the Equatorial E and lower ionosphere regions of the atmosphere, it said. 

The study will enrich available atmospheric data and refine the models used for tropical weather prediction, it added.

Sounding Rocket Experiments held to Study the Upper Atmosphere

The 21st flight of ISRO's RH300 Mk-II Sounding Rocket, was launched on April 06, 2018 at 19:30 Hrs IST fr om the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS), VSSC, Thiruvananthapuram. In this launch, the single stage indigenous Sounding Rocket successfully expelled the chemical Trimethylaluminum (TMA) at altitudes between 90 - 108 km, marking the first successful TMA experiment with an indigenous rocket.
Спойлер
Scientific objectives of the mission are to measure the ionospheric density and neutral winds in the E-Region of the ionosphere using two independent techniques, as well as to cross validate the measurements of wind by these techniques, investigating the modulations in the neutral wind along with electron density at dynamo heights and their implications in providing a trigger for the generation of equatorial Plasma Bubble and assessing the role of wind shears in generation of the E-region irregularities like Sporadic E, Blanketing Es etc.

Accordingly, the major scientific payloads flown were the following:
    [/li]
  • Electron and Neutral Wind (ENWi) Probe to measure neutral wind prevailing in E-region (90 to 120 km)
  •  TMA chemical release technique to cross validate the ENWi data
  •  Langmuir Probe (LP) to measure electron density
Space Physics Laboratory (SPL) of VSSC has developed the ENWi Probe indigenously and this was successfully flown earlier in 2010 during Sooryagrahan campaign using sounding rockets. TMA is a pyrophoric liquid that burns on contact with oxygen. The reaction between TMA and oxygen is slow and produces a long-lasting chemiluminescence that lasts for few minutes and this trail can be captured by white-light cameras from the ground. ENWi Probe is capable of providing wind assessment at any time of the day, while TMA is suitable for twilight and night conditions. TMA, when released in twilight conditions, produces both the white light associated with the chemiluminescence and a strong blue light associated with an aluminum resonance emission line.

The dynamo region over the geomagnetic equator represents the altitude region between 90 - 120 km wh ere the neutral wind plays a very important role in controlling the generation and evolution of electric field and allied electro-dynamical processes. It has been observed that the variability in the prevailing wind and its vertical structure in this region control the large-scale processes like Equatorial Electrojet (EEJ). However, there have not been many measurements on wind in the dynamo region, primarily been due to technical limitations to probe this region. None of the conventional techniques works in this region due to many of reasons. Globally also such measurements are sparse because geomagnetic equator passes over the ocean at most of the places/longitudes, except over Indian, African and Brazilian sectors. Though there have been sporadic attempts to study this region, there are significant gaps, especially in 90-120 km altitude region. The dynamo region has been aptly dubbed as "ignorosphere" of the atmospheric regions.

TMA expulsion experiments are extensively used for characterisation of wind propagation in the E and lower ionosphere regions of the atmosphere. The first launch of a TMA payload from TERLS took place on May 02, 1965 using a French Centaure Sounding Rocket. Seven more launches of TMA payloads have been carried out from the TERLS range using Centaure, Nike-Apache and Petrel Sounding Rockets of France, the USA and Britain respectively. TMA technique is still the preferred method for in-situ wind profile measurements in the upper atmosphere.

RH300 Mk-II is a single stage, fin stabilised, spinning Sounding rocket with a diameter of 305 mm, overall length of 5.6 m and capable of carrying a payload of 80 kg. The rocket is powered by a solid propellant booster motor that burns for about 20 seconds and generates a maximum thrust of 65 kN. The rocket is spun to about 4.5 revolutions per second by two spin rockets mounted at the tip of one set of opposite fins. The spin rockets function for 300 milliseconds and are then ejected out. The vehicle has a centralised sequencer-encoder which provides the commands for all the activities after launch. The data acquired by the various systems are transmitted to the tracking station through a programmable S-band transmitter.

The vehicle reached an apogee of about 107 km in 160 seconds. At 100 seconds after lift-off, when vehicle was at 90 km altitude, expulsion of TMA fluid was initiated. The expulsion continued for 43 seconds at an average flow rate of 50 gram/second. The TMA vapor trail was successfully photographed from four locations on the ground, namely, Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Kanyakumari and Tirunelveli. The trail is initially a nearly straight line since it is released along the rocket trajectory. Afterwards, rotational and speed shears in the upper atmosphere distort the trail.

A quick look on the data shows presence of plasma enhancements associated with Equatorial Electrojet in the ENWi and LP data. Such an observation involving TMA is first of its kind in India and warrants special attention. The TMA trails clearly indicate the presence of strong wind shears and waves in the region 90-105 km, which have significant manifestation on the generation of E and F-region plasma irregularities. In brief, the experiment with RH300 Mk-II launch on April 06, 2018 was a sounding success in which first time Trimethylaluminium trail was created in upper atmosphere and was photographed from the ground.

Detailed analysis is under progress. It is expected that the final results will help in addressing some of the unanswered questions pertaining to the wind structure in the lower ionosphere region over the geomagnetic equator.

The Colorado High-resolution Echelle Stellar Spectrograph, or CHESS 4, was successfully launched on a NASA Black Brant IX sounding rocket at 12:47 p.m. EDT, April 16 (4:47 a.m. local, April 17) from the Kwajalein Atoll in The Republic of the Marshall Islands. The payload systems reported a nominal flight. The payload is to be recovered, making it the second NASA astronomical mission with water recovery. Hampered by high winds since the targeted launch day of April 13, the CHESS 4 left the pad with only 13 minutes left on the last day of the launch window. The CHESS 4 instrument was developed by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The mission was preceded by the launch of the Penn State Water Recovery X-ray (WRX) rocket experiment on April 4. The successful launch of both missions brings to an end this year's Kwajalein Campaign.

Sounding Rocket Launches CHESS Mission to Study the Matter Between Stars

The CHESS 4 mission will study the interstellar me­dium (https://www.nasa.gov/Wallops/2018/feature/nasa-rocket-experiments-to-examine-lifecycle-of-stars), the matter between stars. The mission focuses on translucent clouds of gas, that provide the fundamental building blocks for stars and planets. These clouds have very low densities and the only way to study them is to measure how a cloud is affected by a star -- and its associated outpouring of stellar material, the stellar wind -- moving through it.

The payload systems reported a nominal flight, proceeding as expected. The payload is to be recovered, making it the second NASA astronomical mission with water recovery. Hampered by high winds since the targeted launch day of April 13, the CHESS 4 left the pad with only 13 minutes left on the last day of the launch window.

The CHESS 4 instrument was developed by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The mission was preceded by the launch of the Penn State Water Recovery X-ray (WRX) rocket experiment (https://www.nasa.gov/Wallops/2019/image-feature/nasa-wrx-recovered) on April 4.  The successful launch of both missions brings to an end this year's Kwajalein campaign.

ЦитатаHi-C Launches to Study Sun's Corona

Release No.: 2018-09
For Release: Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - 12:00pm

(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/197611.jpg)

Cambridge, MA - NASA and its partners launched a rocket-borne camera to the edge of space at 2:54 p.m. EDT May 29, 2018, on its third flight to study the Sun. The clarity of images returned is unprecedented and their analysis will provide scientists around the world with clues to one of the biggest questions in heliophysics – why the Sun's atmosphere, or corona, is so much hotter than its surface.

The precision instrument, called the High Resolution Coronal Imager or Hi-C for short, flew aboard a Black Brant IX sounding rocket at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
Спойлер
"This was the third launch of Hi-C," said Amy Winebarger, principal investigator for the Hi-C mission at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Alabama. "Our second launch in 2016 had an issue with the camera on-board the telescope of the instrument. So, while we gathered critical engineering data and some images, we did not get the high-quality images of the corona we were expecting. We improved the camera from the last launch and are already getting exciting data from Tuesday's experiment that could help explain the long-held questions about the Sun's atmosphere."

The telescope on Hi-C, the centerpiece of the payload weighing 464 pounds and measuring 10-feet long, is designed to observe a large, active region in the Sun's corona in fine detail. The instrument has been improved from the last mission with an updated camera that is expected to improve the data taken from the Sun and the images received. The duration of the space portion of the Hi-C mission provided five minutes of observation time with the telescope acquiring an image about every five seconds.

The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) designed and built the optical telescope. This means they mounted and aligned the mirrors, bought the filters, as well as designed and built the structure that holds the mirrors. The SAO team also participates in field operations and science data analysis post flight.

"MSFC and SAO have a long history of collaboration in learning about our Sun," said SAO's Leon Golub, who was the principal investigator of a series of previous sounding rockets and satellites that led to the Hi-C flights. "It's exciting to see how far we've come in our decades working together."

Scientists anticipate that analysis of the imaging data from Hi-C's third flight will help resolve current questions about connections between the hot and cool regions of the solar atmosphere. To meet this goal, Hi-C's launch and data collection was coordinated with the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS), a satellite observatory that captures images of the cooler portions of the sun's atmosphere.

"This is the first combined simultaneous dataset that covers the entire solar atmosphere (photosphere, chromosphere, transition region and corona) at sub-arcsecond resolution!" said IRIS Principal Investigator and Hi-C co-investigator, Dr. Bart De Pontieu from Lockheed Martin Solar & Astrophysics Laboratory.

During its first flight in July 2012, Hi-C captured the highest-resolution images ever taken of the one and a half million-degree solar corona, revealing previously unseen magnetic activity. For decades, scientists have suspected that activity in the Sun's magnetic field is heating the corona. The third flight of Hi-C captured images of comparable resolution in a different regime of extreme ultraviolet light, enabling more direct study of the interface between the hot corona and the cooler layers lower in the solar atmosphere.

"Understanding how the Sun works is important to everyday things we do on Earth," said Winebarger, who started her scientific career as an undergraduate doing research at SAO. "Solar flares and disruptions can disrupt radio, GPS communications and satellites that disseminate cell phone signals. By studying how the Sun releases these bursts of energy, we hope to be able to better anticipate them and, in the future, design technology better equipped to withstand these disruptions."

The Hi-C experiment is led by MSFC in partnership with SAO; Lockheed Martin Solar & Astrophysics Laboratory in Palo Alto, California; and the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, UK. Launch support is provided by NASA's Sounding Rocket Program at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia, which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division manages the sounding-rocket program for the agency.

University and community college students will get a boost in their studies and support in launching their careers during Rocket Week June 15-22, 2018, at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
Спойлер
Nearly 200 university and community college students and instructors fr om across the country will build and fly experiments on a NASA suborbital rocket through the RockOn! (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/national-programs/rockon-2016-home) and RockSat-C (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/national-programs/rs-c-2016-home) programs.

Another 20 high school educators from across the United States will be at the Facility to examine how to apply rocketry basics into their curriculum through the Wallops Rocket Academy for Teachers (WRATs (http://education.wff.nasa.gov/))
[свернуть]
The week culminates at 5:30 a.m. EDT, June 21, with the launch of a NASA Terrier-Improved Orion suborbital sounding rocket carrying the students' experiments. The rocket is 36 feet long and the payload weighs 667 pounds.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 4:30 a.m. EDT on launch day for viewing the flight. Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites. Facebook Live coverage begins at 5:15 a.m. The rocket launch is expected to be seen from the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland.

The rocket will carry 28 experiments (measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation counts) from the RockOn! Program and several experiments from nine schools in the RockSat-C program and more than 80 small cubes with experiments developed by middle school and high school students as part of the Cubes in Space program, a partnership between idoodlelearning inc. and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

The rocket will fly the student experiments to nearly 73-miles altitude. The experiments will land via parachute in the Atlantic Ocean wh ere they will be recovered by boat. The participants should have their experiments returned to them later in the day to begin their data analysis.

Joyce Winterton, Wallops senior advisor for education and leadership development, said, "Rocket Week provides the participants with the opportunity to receive an authentic, hands-on learning experience. For the RockOn! and RockSat-C students, they are able to apply what they've learned in their courses and gain an invaluable experience for their careers. For the WRATS educators, they learn from engineers here at Wallops practical applications that can be applied in the classroom as they inspire the next generation."

Conducted with the Colorado (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/) and Virginia (http://www.vsgc.odu.edu/) Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its eleventh year, RockSat-C its tenth year and WRATS is in its eighth year.

"NASA has been supporting all three programs for many years, showing the value of this type of learning experience," said Giovanni Rosanova, chief of the NASA Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) Office at Wallops. "Sounding rockets and all of NASA's suborbital programs provide a unique opportunity for hands-on and experiential learning for students."

Participants in RockOn! receive instruction on the basics required to develop a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere during the school year they design and build an experiment for rocket flight.

Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium, said, "This year we have the largest class for RockOn! in its 11 years with nearly 100 participants. Working with NASA personnel, building an experiment and watching it fly into space is something the participants find exciting and some of the reasons this program continues to grow."

WRATS works with high school teachers to show them the basics of rocketry and how to take what they learn into the classroom. The 20 participants from Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Michigan, North Carolina, Illinois, Georgia and Pennsylvania will receive instruction on the basics of rocketry including Newton's Laws, fundamentals of electronics, drag and propulsion. This instruction will be applied to hands-on learning activities including building and launching model rockets. The educators also will attend the June 21 rocket launch.

The RockOn!, RockSat and WRATS programs are supported by the NASA Sounding Rocket Program. RockOn! also is supported by NASA's Office of Education (http://www.nasa.gov/education) and NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program in partnership with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, as well as the program participants.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding rocket program for the agency.

Arizona Space Grant Consortium

The Arizona Space Grant Consortium team is a collaboration between the University of Arizona in Tucson and Arizona State University in Tempe. The mission has four objectives: to generate a continuous panoramic image as the rocket ascends cylindrical image of flight and eventually create a virtually explorable visualization of flight; to measure ionizing radiation; to observe radiation effects on bacteria and immune cells; and to measure atmospheric data using a low-cost LiDAR system.

Cubes in Space

Cubes in Space is an educational program for students age 11-18 to design experiments in a 40 mm cube and launch on a sounding rocket. The program builds awareness in the pre-college age group about easily accessible, short-duration, and relatively low-cost spaceflight missions and opportunities in support of scientific exploration objectives.

Hobart and William Smith College

The Hobart and William Smith College in Geneva, New York, team is studying muon flux at different levels in the atmosphere as well as modeling how Earth's magnetic field changes with respect to altitude using a magnetometer. The team also is developing a curriculum for local middle school students based on their magnetometer experiment to promote STEM outreach. From this experiment, this team believes their results may be able to provide assistance to scientists to better model the upper atmosphere and how to interact with it.

Langston University

The goal of the Langston University in Oklahoma STEM team is to design and manufacture a clinostat – a device meant to combat the rotation of a rocket, which can be used to support growth of biological samples. The clinostat will contain vials with prebiotic and probiotic samples that will be stabilized by the clinostat. The team is also conducting a ground experiment with a centrifuge to see how the samples are affected in both situations and compare the effectiveness of the clinostat. With their results, the team hopes to study dysregulation in the immune system of astronauts during prolonged flights.

Oregon Institute of Technology

Oregon Tech's mission consists of four main experiments: a radiation shield test using four Geiger tubes, a fiber optic gyroscope mission, a data management system to record experimental values, and the development of a universal mounting system for future RockSat-C missions. Through their experiment, Oregon Tech in Klamath Falls hopes to design better systems for space applications and encourage the program at their institution.

Stevens Institute of Technology

Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey, will conduct two experiments during flight. The first objective is to create a system that can record and isolate vibrations occurring in the payload for sensitive electronics and other equipment. The second experiment will measure the High-Speed Boundary Layer Transitions from laminar to turbulent pressure waves using a high frequency pressure sensor mounted in the multipurpose port. After gathering data, the team hopes to characterize the transition phase of the boundary layer through various pressures and velocities along the surface of the rocket.

University of Delaware

The University of Delaware in Newark will demonstrate the durability and test performance characteristics of a graphene-silicon based optical chip under launch conditions and construct a reusable inertial navigation system and platform for future RockSat-C missions at their university. The team is launching their experiment as part of their senior capstone project, and hope to provide accurate data for the newly developed optical chip to aid with research at their university.

University of Wisconsin

The University of Wisconsin team is a collaboration between students at the Milwaukee and Sheboygan campuses. Their mission is to observe the effects of rocket flight to the lower atmosphere on DNA plasmid transfer rates and use sensors to measure the conditions during flight. The team will use four Geiger counters (with and without shielding) to study how radiation affects the samples. The team believes the data will help to better understand how the conditions found in space might affect the efficiency with which bacteria communicate with each other (such as how antibiotic resistance could be spread at a higher rate during extended space travel).

Washington & Jefferson College

The Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania, team will measure the intensity of electron and ion currents in space to calculate the density and temperature of plasma. In addition, the team will measure the sodium density in a narrow layer of the atmosphere and include a Geiger tube as a radiation experiment. The team hopes their results will assist others to better understand the nature of the ionosphere.

West Virginia Collaboration

The West Virginia Space Flight Design Challenge is a collaboration between NASA IV&V in Fairmont, West Virginia; Fairmont State University; Blue Ridge Community and Technical College in Martinsburg; West Virginia University's (WVU) in Morgantown Amateur Radio Club and the National Society of Black Engineers. Fairmont's mission is to record the trajectory of the rocket and record its data in real time to eventually model the flight in 3D. Blue Ridge hopes to capture vibration data that can be used to help future teams create experiments that are designed to withstand harsh vibrations with the use of Piezoelectric Ceramic Disks. The goal of the WVU Amateur Radio Club's experiment is to provide a method of telemetry collection through the use of a transmitting station aboard the rocket and a receiving station at the launch site. They will use two antennae (one transmitting and the other a GPS) in their multipurpose port. The WVU National Society of Black Engineers will collect and store flight data (altitude, temperature, pressure, trajectory, rotation, and speed). Finally, the NASA IV&V Pathways Agency Cross-Center Connections interns' experiment includes a microfluidics experiment designed to observe channel occlusion due to protein aggregation, an RNA folding experiment, and a synthetic protocell gene expression experiment. They believe their data will benefit NASA's goal of sustained space flight, medical/pharmaceutical research and development, and the field of astrobiology research.

EVE calibration, 7th launch

Sounding Rocket Takes a Second Look at the Sun

Tom Woods knows about space gunk.

As the principal investigator for the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment, or EVE, instrument aboard NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, he's all too familiar with the ways that exposure to the harsh space environment can lead to a spacecraft instrument's degradation.

"Since its launch in 2010, EVE's sensitivity has degraded by about 70 percent at some wavelengths," Woods said.

When your job is to measure subtle variability in extreme ultraviolet, or EUV, light emitted by the Sun, that amount of degradation, left unchecked, can be a big problem.

But all is not lost: To correct for the effects of degradation, Woods uses calibration sounding rockets. The seventh such rocket will launch fr om the White Sands Missile Range in White Sands, New Mexico. The launch window opens at 1 p.m. MT on June 18, 2018.

EVE calibration sounding rockets carry a copy of the EVE instrument to approximately 180 miles above Earth, wh ere it measures EUV light from the Sun for about 10 minutes before parachuting back down to Earth for recovery. The measurements, made by the rocket instruments unaffected by degradation, are compared to the those from the degraded satellite EVE instrument, so Woods and his team can correct for any discrepancies.

"That's why the sounding rockets are so important – they're like a second channel, to calibrate the channel that is seeing the Sun all the time."

The EVE sounding rockets are a critical part of the mission. "Without the calibration, EVE wouldn't be able to do its job," Woods continued. "We really wouldn't know what the brightness of the Sun is, because we wouldn't know how much the instrument has degraded."

Measurements from the EVE sounding rocket are used to calibrate extreme ultraviolet instruments aboard several other spacecrafts, including NASA's Thermosphere Ionosphere Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED); Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE); Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO); ESA (the European Space Agency) and NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) Program; and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and NASA's Hinode.

Thanks to calibration sounding rockets like EVE we can keep our space instruments working at full capacity — and through them, keep our eyes continuously on the skies.

Students Experiments Launch on NASA Rocket from Wallops

The RockOn! and RockSat-C student payload was successfully launched on a NASA Terrier-Improved Orion suborbital sounding rocket at 5:30 a.m. EDT, Thursday, June 21, 2018, from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The payload flew to an altitude of 75 miles during its suborbital flight. After landing in the Atlantic Ocean via a parachute, the payload was recovered and will be returned later today to Wallops for the students to access their experiments and begin their data analysis.

More than 200 students and 20 educators from around the United States were present for the launch.

"Having all these teams come together as one at the end, and meeting requirements that NASA professionals meet is enormously exciting," said RockSat-C participant Emily Certain, a junior studying mechanical and aerospace engineering at West Virginia University, Morgantown.

"Just being able to come to Wallops to experience things first hand and then go back to our institution is a very unique and useful experience," said Rockon! participant Brady Kinner, a junior studying mechanical engineering and computer science at Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina. "The most exciting part was working on these parts and finally seeing it take off to the sky."

"Our rocket team consists of so many backgrounds of people and a lot of us haven't had the opportunity to have been through a program like this one," said RockOn! participant Thayne Yazzie, a faculty member at Northwest Indian College, Bellingham, Washington. "To see our students excel, not just in their school, but in their lives is really cool."

Conducted with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its eleventh year, and RockSat-C its tenth year.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility, which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division manages the sounding rocket program for the agency.

Wallops' sounding rockets are suborbital. They go (https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/125628.png) and back (https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/125629.png). This gives us the ability to recover the payload after flight.

For missions like ASPIRE, which tests the Mars 2020 rover's parachute, recovery is vital for parachute evaluation before its journey to Mars.

NASA Launches X-ray Telescope on Sounding Rocket to Study Star Wreckage

Editor's note, July 23, 2018: The Micro-X team reports that while the detector functioned as expected during the flight, demonstrating the technology in space flight for the first time, the observatory's pointing system was unable to lock onto its target, Cassiopeia A. The team will be looking forward to its next opportunity for a reflight.

NASA launched a prototype telescope and instrument to observe the X-rays emitted by Cassiopeia A, the expanding debris of an exploded star. The High-Resolution Microcalorimeter X-ray Imaging Rocket (Micro-X) (http://microx.northwestern.edu/) launched July 22 aboard a sub-orbital launch vehicle called a sounding rocket (https://www.nasa.gov/missions/research/f_sounding.html) and successfully tested its detector technology.

This image of supernova remnant Cassiopeia A, captured by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, reveals the location of silicon (red), sulfur (yellow), calcium (green) and iron (purple) in the debris. The Micro-X mission will map a wider range of elements so astronomers can better understand the explosion. Cassiopeia A lies about 11,000 light-years from Earth.

"The flight time of a sounding rocket is short compared to orbiting satellites, so you have to get as much light as you can to do the science you want," said Principal Investigator Enectali Figueroa-Feliciano, an associate professor of physics at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. "There are only a couple of X-ray sources in the sky that are bright enough for the few minutes of observation time such flights give us, and Cassiopeia A is one of the brightest. Our study will build on the current knowledge of supernova remnants, how they exploded and evolve, and we will get new insights into the history of Cassiopeia A."

Launched from the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, Micro-X soared to an altitude of 100 miles (160 kilometers) — required to detect X-rays that are absorbed by Earth's atmosphere — and observed the remnant for the next five minutes. At its pinnacle Micro-X reached an altitude of 167 miles (270 kilometers).

The mission incorporates the first array of transition-edge sensor X-ray microcalorimeters to fly into space. These sensors act as highly sensitive thermometers and make ideal detectors for an X-ray telescope.

The microcalorimeter is comprised of three main parts: an absorber which takes in light and converts it to heat, a thermistor that alters its own resistance due to changing temperature and a heat sink that cools the microcalorimeter back down.

Micro-X is shown during vibration testing at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility at Wallops Island, Virginia, on June 11, 2018. Such tests verify the telescope can withstand the rigors of a rocket flight.

For Micro-X, a refrigerator cools the detector to about 459 degrees below zero Fahrenheit (0.075 degree Celsius above absolute zero), or nearly the minimum temperature possible. When the instrument detects X-rays, the light's energy is converted into heat. This causes a slight rise in temperature, prompting the refrigerator to cool the detector back to its original temperature. The energy of each X-ray can be determined from the change in temperature.

One of the many questions that scientists are interested in using the data to answer is whether or not the temperatures of the gases ejected from the star's explosion are the same for iron and silicon, two elements which were previously measured by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. (https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra/main/index.html) Such an analysis was not possible with Chandra's spectrometers.

"With Chandra, different regions of the supernova remnant overlap in the spectrometer," said F. Scott Porter, an astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, who is participating in the mission. "Micro-X is different because it can take every single photon in its field of view, tell the exact energy and make a spectrum."

The information collected by Micro-X will also be used to help answer the question of how much oxygen resides in Cassiopeia A, create a survey of the various other elements in the remnant and measure the speed of the ring-like ejecta from the exploded star.

One aspect of research that was not possible before Micro-X was the measurement of weak spectral lines. These observations will now tell scientists which gases are present as well as their speed and direction. This is possible because light from sources moving toward or away from us causes a shift in wavelength depending on their speed, a phenomenon known as the Doppler shift (http://astronomy.swin.edu.au/cosmos/D/Doppler+Shift).

Both the mission of Micro-X and the utilization of transition-edge sensors will continue in the future. The Micro-X team plans to direct their attention to other cosmic objects. "In future flights we can look at other sources like other supernova remnants or clusters of galaxies," said Figueroa-Feliciano. "We have even thought about using this type of rocket to look for dark matter."

Transition-edge sensors will also be incorporated in upcoming orbital missions. ESA's (European Space Agency) Advanced Telescope for High Energy Astrophysics (ATHENA) (http://www.the-athena-x-ray-observatory.eu/), planned for launch in the early 2030s, will wield an array of about 5,000 pixels, nearly 40 times the size of Micro-X's 128-pixel detector. ATHENA will study hot gas structures — such as groups of galaxies — and conduct a census of black holes.

In addition to NASA and Northwestern University, Micro-X is supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home) at Wallops Island, Virginia, which is managed by Goddard. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding rocket program for the agency. The development of the Micro-X payload was supported by NASA's Astrophysics Division.

RockSat-X Student Experiments Launching Aug. 14 from NASA Wallops

After toiling all hours of the day, including weekends, on experiments and technology demonstration projects, university and community college students from across the country will see the results of their hard work fly to space on a NASA suborbital sounding rocket Aug.14, 2018, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The launch of the 44-foot tall two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute rocket is scheduled between 5:45 and 10 a.m. EDT. The backup launch dates are August 15 - 17.

After flying to around 91 miles altitude, the payload, with the experiments, will descend by parachute and is expected to land 15 minutes after launch in the Atlantic Ocean, about 64 miles off the Virginia coast. The experiments and any stored data will be provided to the students later in the day following sea recovery of the payload.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 5 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight. The rocket launch is expected to be only seen from the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland.

Live coverage of the mission is set to begin at 5:15 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites. Facebook Live coverage begins at 5:30 a.m.

The experiments are flying through the RockSat-X program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/). RockSat-X is the most advanced of NASA's three-phase sounding rocket program for students. The RockOn launches are at the entry level, then progress to the intermedia level RockSat-C missions and then RockSat-X.

Participating institutions in this flight are the University of Colorado, Boulder; the University of Puerto Rico; Virginia Tech, Blacksburg; University of Kentucky, Lexington; Capitol Technology University, Laurel, Maryland; University of Maryland, College Park; Temple University, Philadelphia; .

Also, the West Virginia Space Flight Design Challenge is a collaboration between The Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York, and four colleges in West Virginia --.West Virginia University, Morgantown; Marshall University, Huntington; West Virginia State University, Institute; West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon; and NASA's IV & V Facility in Fairmont.

Giovanni Rosanova, chief of the Sounding Rocket Program Office at Wallops, said, "We are looking forward to the eighth flight of a RockSat-X payload on a NASA sounding rocket. Participating students are able to apply what they learn in the classroom into a hands-on project. To be a part of this process is rewarding to everyone involved in RockSat-X at Wallops."

RockSat-X is part of a three-tier program that introduces secondary institution students to building experiments for space flight and requires them to expand their skills to develop and build projects that are more complex as students progress through the programs. RockSat-X experiments fly approximately 20 miles higher in altitude than those in the RockOn and RockSat-C programs, providing more flight time in space.

"It's amazing to see students progress through RockOn and RockSat process. They are able to increase their skill levels, skills that industry and government organizations seek," said Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

The agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland, conducts NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets). NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding-rocket program for the agency.

The experiments on this RockSat-X flight are:
Спойлер
Community Colleges of Colorado

The Orbital Scrap Capture and Reclamation (OSCAR) project is a collaboration between three community colleges in Colorado -- Arapahoe Community College in Littleton, Community College of Aurora, and Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood. The purpose of this experiment is to develop a cost effective method to alter the trajectory of space debris in suborbital flight. The payload creates an electrostatic field to attract small pieces of aluminum debris by charging a deployable rod with rabbit fur. The team hopes to use what they learn during this flight to better validate a potential method for deorbiting space debris in the future – a problem that is currently being investigated by a number of different institutions.

Capitol Technology University

The goal of Project Janus is to demonstrate the use of a laser distancing system to measure the speed of CubeSats within constellation during flight. This project simulates a satellite powered by its own battery system activated by Wallops. The payload uses two laser range finders to measure the distance and speed of a small CubeSat that moves along a track. It also uses the Iridium network to communicate and downlink data. CTU is also collaborating with a school for students with learning disabilities who are flying their own, independent experiment (U2-Pi Imager). The U2-Pi project aims to take images of the Earth's surface to assess land coverage.

Temple University

Temple University's mission is to detect flux and angular distribution of cosmic radiation as a function of altitude. This project is part of TU's senior design class and aims to expand upon previous research on radiation at lower altitudes. The payload uses scintillation coupled silicon photomultipliers to detect muon and high energy particles at various altitudes during the flight of the sounding rocket. They hope to be able to detect these muons and cosmic rays and collect data on them to be able to determine their direction of travel.

University of Colorado Boulder

The purpose of the Measuring Emitting Ground stations using Antennas Listening for Oscillating Doppler Outputs from NEXRAD (MEGALODON) experiment is to use passive RF technology to characterize the local NexRad Doppler Radar network. RF signals tend to degrade as they travel through the Earth's atmosphere and understanding these losses is crucial in the formation of a link budget. The team is developing a theoretical Matlab model to determine the projected nominal path loss due to altitude, radar pointing and scanning modes, and other environmental factors. The data collected during flight will be compared to the model to characterize other losses such as factors such as free space path loss and radar pointing.

University of Maryland

This payload includes two different experiments from the University of Maryland. The Stratification and Tribocharging Analysis of Regolith (STAR) experiment will study the effects of tribocharging on extra-terrestrial regolith simulant. It utilizes RaspberryPi imagers to capture pictures of regolith simulant as it charges in a space environment. The Space Characterization and Assessment of Manipulator Performance (SCAMP) project will fly a functional robotic manipulator component in a microgravity environment to test contact stability on both hard and soft contacts. This experiment will rotate a bar with a changing moment of inertia in order to provide contact stability data for a satellite servicing robot experiment currently in progress at UMd.

University of Puerto Rico

The University of Puerto Rico's mission is to collect micrometeorites in the Meteor Trail at altitudes of 49 – 68 miles (80-110 km) in order to gather organic molecules for complete DNA, RNA, and Nucleic Acids. The payload uses polyimide aerogels to collect samples of micrometeorites and organic molecules and includes a MinION real-time DNA and RNA sequencer. The payload also uses a number of different cross contamination mitigation strategies prior to and during launch including thorough cleaning of the payload and surrounding rocket skin and releasing oxygen plasma at apogee.

Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech's mission is to support STEM education and outreach by utilizing the ThinSat platform that allows high school and university students to test their own experiment in a space environment. The payload deploys three ThinSats – two of which have been built by local high school students from Blacksburg High School – that collect data on UV radiation, stabilization using a reaction wheel, ionizing radiation (using a Geiger counter), and RF transmission. The payload also deploys an antenna to allow the ThinSats to transmit their data back to the main payload on the rocket.

West Virginia Collaboration

The Hobart and William Smith Colleges are attempting to measure the temperature and vibration of their payload throughout the rocket's flight. Marshall University's experiment uses an automated target acquisition system to take pictures of target stars and assess the effectiveness of astronomy.net for target acquisition during flight. West Virginia State University is preparing for future CubeSat missions by comparing different equipment designs and testing the feasibility of a Michelson Interferometer. West Virginia University is evaluating the capabilities of a jettisoned capsule to project individual experiments in future missions and design an ultra-compact plasma spectrometer with reduced mass, volume, and high voltage requirements and comparing it to identical instruments. West Virginia Wesleyan College's experiment is to compare the effectiveness of a thermionic converter to a solar panel in space and to prove NOAA magnetometer data

Approximately 100 undergraduate university and community college students from across the United States were on hand to witness the launch of their experiments and technology demonstration projects on a NASA suborbital rocket at 6:13 a.m., Aug. 14, from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility.

The Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket launched as the sun was rising over the horizon and carried the student projects to an altitude of 98.5 miles.

After a brief ride into space, the payload carrying the students' projects descended by parachute and landed in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 64 miles from the launch site. After recovery, the experiments will be returned to the students later in the day.
Спойлер
The eight experiments developed by students from across the country flew through the RockSat-X program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/). RockSat-X is the most advanced of NASA's three-phase sounding rocket program for students. The RockOn launches are at the entry level, then progress to the intermedia level RockSat-C missions and then RockSat-X.

Also joining the RockSat-X students for the launch were about 50 students participating in the RockSat-XN program who are at Wallops preparing their experiment projects for flight. Similar to RockSat-X, XN includes experiments developed by students in the United States and those from universities in Norway and Japan.

XN is launching in January 2019 from the Andoya Space Center in Norway as part of an international project called the Grand Challenge Initiative (GCI) – Cusp. (https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/nasa-joins-international-science-team-in-exploring-auroral-cusp-from-norway)

In the GCI, NASA and United States scientists will join those from Norway, Japan, Canada and other countries during the next two years to investigate the region called the geomagnetic cusp — one of the few places on Earth with easy access to the electrically charged solar wind that pervades the solar system. The coordinated studies of near-Earth space at the Polar Regions will help understand the fundamental processes of our neighborhood in space; such knowledge is needed for safe navigation and communication near the poles, wh ere solar activity can disrupt radio signals.

NASA will conduct the third in a series of parachute tests for possible future missions to Mars during the flight of a Terrier-Black Brant IX suborbital sounding rocket in the morning on Sep. 7, 2018, from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The launch window for the 58-foot tall rocket is from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT. The backup launch days are Sep. 8 – 15.

The rocket will carry the Advanced Supersonic Parachute Inflation Research Experiment (ASPIRE) from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

The payload carrying the parachute test article is expected to reach an altitude of 32 miles approximately 2 minutes into the flight. The payload will splash-down in the Atlantic Ocean 40 miles from Wallops Island and will be recovered and returned to Wallops for data retrieval and inspection.

The payload is a bullet-nosed, cylindrical structure holding a supersonic parachute, the parachute's deployment mechanism, and the test's high-definition instrumentation -- including cameras -- to record data.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 8:30 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight.  The rocket launch is expected to be only seen from the Wallops area.

Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites.

ASPIRE is managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, with support from NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, and NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. NASA's Sounding Rocket Program is based at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding-rocket program for the agency.

NASA-funded Rocket to View Sun with X-Ray Vision

Without special instrumentation, the Sun looks calm and inert. But beneath that placid façade are countless miniature explosions called nanoflares.

These small but intense eruptions are born when magnetic field lines in the Sun's atmosphere tangle up and stretch until they break like a rubber band. The energy they release accelerates particles to near lightspeed and according to some scientists, heats the solar atmosphere to its searing million-degree Fahrenheit temperature.

All of this happens in colors of light so extreme that the human eye can't see them. Nanoflares aren't visible — at least not to the naked eye.

Finding the traces of nanoflares requires X-ray vision, and scientists have been hard at work developing the best tools for the job. The latest advance in this project is represented by NASA's Focusing Optics X-ray Solar Imager, or FOXSI mission, soon to take its third flight from the White Sands Missile Range in White Sands, New Mexico, no earlier than Sept. 7.

FOXSI is a sounding rocket mission. Derived from the nautical term "to sound," meaning to measure, sounding rockets make brief 15-minute journeys above Earth's atmosphere for a peek at space before falling back to the ground. Smaller, cheaper and faster to develop than large-scale satellite missions, sounding rockets offer a way for scientists to test their latest ideas and instruments — and achieve rapid results.

FOXSI will travel 190 miles up, above the shield of Earth's atmosphere, to stare directly at the Sun and search for nanoflares using its X-ray vision.

"FOXSI is the first instrument built specially to image high-energy X-rays from the Sun by directly focusing them," said Lindsay Glesener, space physicist at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and principal investigator for the mission. "Other instruments have done this for other astronomical objects, but FOXSI is so far the only instrument to optimize especially for the Sun."

The Sun tells its story in layers of light, each of which reveals what's happening at different temperatures. For example, the sunlight that our eyes can see is primarily from the Sun's photosphere, which is approximately 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. But there's much more going on outside the bounds of human vision. X-ray light, in particular, reveals processes that heat plasma to millions of degrees Fahrenheit, like the most violent explosions at the cores of nanoflares.

But high-quality views of X-rays from the Sun don't come easy. Unlike visible light, X-rays are hard to focus; they are largely unaffected by the lenses and mirrors used in conventional telescopes. Previous X-ray missions had to make do without focused light.

"In the past we generally used cleverly sel ected masks to block out some part of the incoming X-rays," said Säm Krucker, space physicist at the University of California, Berkeley, and principal investigator for FOXSI's two previous flights. "This does not result in very high-quality images, but it nevertheless gave us crucial information on the most energetic part of solar flares."

To focus the X-rays, the FOXSI team used extremely hard, smooth surfaces tilted to a small angle (less than half a degree) that would gently corral incoming X-ray light to a point of focus.

On its second flight, FOXSI captured evidence of hard X-ray emission from nanoflares. FOXSI's observations of hard X-rays are shown in blue outlining the very hottest regions of the solar atmosphere, superimposed over a soft X-ray image of the Sun from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's (JAXA) and NASA's Hinode solar-observing satellite.

"Thanks to these telescopes we can now make focused X-ray images of our Sun" said Krucker. "These images have a much-improved image quality at a much higher sensitivity."

This will be FOXSI's third flight — its first was in 2012, during which it successfully viewed a small solar flare in progress, and its second in 2014, when it detected the best evidence at the time of X-ray emission from nanoflares. The third mission follows up on this discovery, but this time it includes a new telescope designed for imaging lower-energy, so-called soft X-rays as well.

"Including the soft X-ray telescope gives us more precise temperatures," said Glesener, allowing the team to spot nanoflare signatures that would be missed with the hard X-ray telescopes alone. In addition, several other performance improvements have been made to produce more accurate, higher-resolution images.

FOXSI's third flight will also be the first led by Glesener, who was a graduate student, and then the project manager, for the previous two flights led by Krucker.

"This kind of training and project inheritance is common in sounding rocket programs," said Glesener. "They are designed to grow and mature scientific leaders as well as hardware!"

FOXSI is a collaboration between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, and has co-investigators fr om the University of Minnesota; University of California at Berkeley; NASA's Goddard and Marshall space flight centers in Greenbelt, Maryland, and Huntsville, Alabama, respectively; the University of Tokyo; Nagoya University; the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan; and Tokyo University of Science. FOXSI is supported through NASA's Sounding Rocket Program at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. NASA's Heliophysics Division manages the sounding rocket program.

Отмечается, что ракета была запущена в 14.17 по местному времени (13.17 мск), на ней установлен двигатель, созданный норвежской компанией Nammo. Ранее на всех остальных ракетах устанавливались двигатели иностранного производства.

"На первый взгляд, то, что мы видим – что все прошло успешно", — сообщил телекомпании начальник отдела космического центра Кулбьорн Бликс.

Ракета пролетела 107 километров над морем и пересекла границу атмосферы и космического пространства.

"В общей сложности стоимость разработки и запуска ракеты составила 100 миллионов крон (около 10,5 миллионов евро)", — приводит данные телекомпания. Это также первая в Европе ракета с гибридным двигателем, который использует и жидкое, и твердое топливо.

Вес ракеты — 800 кг, длина — 9 метров, однако находиться на орбите она не сможет из-за слишком маленьких размеров. Предполагается, что ракета безопасно упадет в море.

Nucleus: Successful Mission
27.09, 2018
 
On Thursday 27 September Nammo successfully completed the first launch of Nucleus, a sounding rocket powered by its new hybrid rocket motor.

Nucleus launched at 14:16, local time, from Andøya Space Center in Northern Norway, and reached an altitude of 107.4 km. That made it not only the first rocket powered by a Norwegian motor design to cross the Karman line, the commonly recognized border to space, but also the first European hybrid rocket motor to do so in more than 50 years.

"This is a tremendous achievement, and we are really proud of the entire space team. We have invested a lot of time and effort in this project, and it was such a great experience to finally watch it take off earlier today" said Morten Brandtzæg, president & CEO of the Nammo Group.

 The launch was also welcomed by the Norwegian government.

"The Nucleus launch is a manifestation of the know-how and technological prowess of Norwegian industry. I congratulate Nammo and Andøya Space Center on bringing Norwegian space technology a huge step forward," said Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr. Torbjørn Røe Isaksen.

The Hybrid Rocket Motor powering Nucleus has been developed by Nammo at Raufoss in Norway, and could potentially power a whole new generation of smaller European launch vehicles.

"Even though hybrid rockets have been around since the thirties, a number of technical challenges have remained. We are proud that we have been able to solve these, and get the concept to work for the first time", said Adrien Boiron, lead engineer on the Nucleus project.

 Nucleus is a sounding rocket, designed to lift scientific instruments into the upper layers of the atmosphere. The hybrid rocket motor propelling it, however, can be scaled up lift a wide range of payload, including small satellites into low earth orbit.

"For this specific flight, Nucleus carried 3 technical experiments aloft. The most important one being the ASC/UiO 4D-SPACE module loaded with its 6 daughter payloads. During flight, the daughters were released 2 at the time when the rocket passes 60 km altitude. They measured small-scale plasma structures and transmitted data back to the main 4D-Space module. In addition we also tested a newly ASC developed pyrotechnical system and an inertial unit (IMU) from Sensor AS", said Kolbjørn Blix, Director of Space Systems at Andøya Space Center.

Nammo is hoping that the new propulsion technology demonstrated with Nucleus will be able to power future launch vehicles for small satellites.

"Over the next few years there are plans to launch thousands of small satellites. The benefit of our new hybrid rocket motor is they can lift them into orbit with the accuracy of a liquid fueled engine, but without the associated risks and costs, making it ideal for smaller European launch sites," said Onno Verberne, Nammo's VP of Business Development for space.

 Today, only a sel ect few nations – Russia, India, China, USA, France and Japan – have the capacity to build launch vehicles for satellites and send them into space fr om home bases. If the technology demonstrated in the Nucleus is successful, Norway has the potential to join them.

Facts about Nucleus
 The Nucleus rocket was 9 meters long and had a total weight of around 800kg. The motor gave a thrust of 30KN (3 tons). The planned future version of the engine would give 75-100 KN of thrust.

Two hundred people; two centuries, in the Roman style. That's what it takes to launch two rockets fr om the top of the world. One hundred here and another hundred back home to help with the designing and the building and the testing and the shipping and to take each of the thousand steps between an idea and the reality.

We are sixty-one team members in the field, Norwegians, Canadians, and Americans, technicians, engineers, and scientists. Payload team, instrument team, motor team, launcher team. Telemetry and tracking team, range team, safety team. All working together at the end of the Earth, far from home.

Then there are the Kings Bay staff. Pilot, purchaser, plumber, chef, cooks, and carpenter, harbormaster, mechanic, electrician, and the rest of the twenty-three souls that live here in Ny-Ålesund, keeping this community running through the long polar night. Rounding out our first century are the other workers and researchers at the Polar Institute, here in scientific communion.

In our second century are the team members we left at home. The machinists who turn solid aluminum into sleek and elegant instruments, each unique, purpose-built. The designers and technicians who imagined and then built each of the myriads of circuits and pulled the miles of electrical wiring. The administrative staff who make sure the bills get paid, the travel arrangements run smoothly, and emergencies are handled quickly and efficiently. For three years this team has worked so that the field team could spend weeks in the high Arctic, preparing our rockets and experiments.

We have journeyed to Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, the northernmost town in the world, so that we can touch the sky.
Спойлер
(https://img.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/135936.jpg)
Ny Ålesund is the northernmost year-round civilian settlement in the world. On the shores of the Kongsfjord (King's Bay), it benefits from the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, which provides an ice-free harbor year-round. Once an important home of coal mining, it has changed focus to scientific research. At 78.9° N, the town is only 1237 km from the North Pole, and over 5700 km from Washington, DC.
[свернуть]
We are here because the harbor, even at 79° N, is open year-round. We are here because during the months of winter night, there is no Sun to share the sky with the shining aurora. We are here because there is a modern rocket launch facility on the shores of Kongsfjorden, once a home of fishermen and coal miners. Now our aim is a different kind of extraction – prying the mysteries of our upper atmosphere from the cold blackness.

We are here because this is the one inhabited place on Earth that, every morning, passes directly underneath a weak point in our world's magnetic bubble, a funnel that channels the fierce solar wind into our upper atmosphere, sparking auroral displays, and boiling the gases of our atmosphere off into the vacuum of space. We are here to learn how this happens, and to take a picture.

Our mission, VISualizing Ion Outflow via Neutral atom Sensing (VISIONS-2), will launch from Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, between December 4 – 18, 2018. VISIONS-2 is part of the Grand Challenge Initiative — Cusp, a dedicated sequence of 11 rockets launching over 2 years to study the interaction between the magnetic cusp and the upper atmosphere. The Grand Challenge is a multinational cooperative agreement between the US, Norway, and Japan that provides for open data sharing and scientific collaboration. The three nations are leveraging existing infrastructure to optimize scientific return from missions launched by all three countries.

Like the old daguerreotypes, this picture will be primitive. It will be grainy. It will be such a long exposure as to blur the impatient atoms as they champ and strain under Earth's gravity. But this picture will reveal, in false-color chiaroscuro, the locations and strength of fountains of gas that shoot high out of the atmosphere, driven by the intense electric currents that course through the aurora.

Unlike the daguerreotypes, our picture does not register light striking a silvered plate. Our picture is built up by a glass plate that detects the impacts of very fast atoms, racing past their neighbors like a Formula 1 car overtaking a marathon runner. These atoms undergo their own marathon journey, traveling tens or hundreds of miles from the fountains wh ere they are born. But to see them, we must go to space. This because our planet's thick atmosphere absorbs any atoms which travel down towards us on the ground, blanketing us in ignorance and shrouding these fountains in mystery. Only a camera lofted above, to altitudes above this shroud, can reveal these atmospheric fountains and their link to the ghostly aurora.

So, we come to this place, the only one on Earth like it, bringing rockets to lift our cameras high. We come here in the long winter night, our way lit by the aurora's iridescence, and our hearts warmed by the welcome of our Norwegian friends and colleagues. We come here in the spirit of international cooperation and scientific endeavor to learn about our world, and perhaps, about ourselves.

To Image Leaky Atmosphere, NASA Rocket Team Heads North

On a frigid morning in early December, a team of NASA rocket scientists will huddle in the control room in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, a remote archipelago off the northern coast of Norway. Here at the world's northernmost rocket range, operated by Norway's Andøya Space Center, the clock may read 8 a.m., but the Sun won't be up — by that time, it won't have peeked over the horizon in more than a month.

For a month's time, Ny-Ålesund will be home to the rocket team behind NASA's VISIONS-2 mission, short for Visualizing Ion Outflow via Neutral Atom Sensing-2. They have ventured to this extreme place for an up-close look at atmospheric escape, the process whereby Earth is slowly leaking its atmosphere into space. Understanding atmospheric escape on Earth has applications all over the Universe — fr om predicting which far off planets might be habitable, to piecing together how Mars became the desolate, exposed landscape it is today. VISIONS-2 is scheduled to launch no earlier than Dec. 4, 2018.

Led by Doug Rowland of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, VISIONS-2 is a sounding rocket mission, a type of suborbital rocket that makes brief, targeted flights into space before falling back to Earth just a few minutes later. Sounding rockets are unique among scientific spacecraft for their superior dexterity: They can be carted to remote locations, where they are aimed and shot into short-lived events — like the sudden formation of the aurora borealis — at a moment's notice.

The aurora borealis is of keen interest to the VISIONS-2 team, but not just for its otherworldly glow. The aurora play are fundamental drivers in the process of atmospheric escape, whereby planets, including Earth, gradually leak their atmosphere into space.

"The Earth is losing weight," said Thomas Moore, a Goddard space physicist who specializes in atmospheric escape. "There have been enough observations to know that anywhere fr om a hundred to several hundred tons of atmosphere are going into space every day."

(Not to worry — at that rate, Moore estimates, Earth will retain its atmosphere for a billion or so years.)

We've suspected that Earth was losing atmosphere since at least 1904, when Sir James Jeans first published his work The Dynamical Theory of Gases, laying the theoretical foundations for atmospheric escape. But there's one element draining away that still presents a mystery. Scientists had long thought that oxygen, weighing in at 16 times the mass of hydrogen, was too heavy to escape Earth's gravity.

"To escape Earth, oxygen would require something like 100 times the energy that it typically has," said Rowland, the mission's principal investigator. "Only the tiniest fraction should ever make it." But when scientists finally went up and looked in the '60s and '70s, that's not what they found. In fact, near-Earth space is teeming with much more Earth-borne oxygen than anyone had expected.

"But how did it get up there? You need processes that energize that oxygen enough to escape," said Rowland.

The aurora, it turns out, is one such process. The aurora are formed when energetic electrons, accelerated in the electric and magnetic fields in near-Earth space, crash into and excite atmospheric gases, which emit bright hues of red, green, and yellow as they relax back to a lower energy state. But these unruly electrons also create a cascade of havoc in the process, including driving electric currents that heat the upper atmosphere in splotchy patches. In some cases, that heating is sufficient to give stray oxygen atoms enough energy to escape. "It's like putting a heating element into your soup — eventually, it's going to start boiling," said Rowland.

VISIONS-1, the current mission's precursor, launched fr om the Poker Flat Research Range in Alaska in 2013, where they studied oxygen outflow from aurora that form on Earth's night side, the part of the planet that is temporarily pointed away from the Sun. For the VISIONS-2 mission, the team will travel to a unique part of the globe wh ere dayside aurora can be found.

Once a day, Svalbard passes under an unusual feature in Earth's magnetosphere known as the polar cusp. The polar cusps form at both the North and South poles on the Sun-facing side of the planet, and they are the only places wh ere particles from the solar wind can stream directly into our atmosphere. The cusps are like magnetic bridges between Earth and space, wh ere energetic electrons from the Sun crash into atmospheric particles and create a dayside aurora.

VISIONS-2 will fly two rockets into the northern polar cusp, wh ere it will use an imaging technique to map oxygen outflow from the aurora. Using this technique, VISIONS-2 takes a different approach from many other missions, which attempt to combine data from many outflow events. Instead, VISIONS-2 hopes to acquire a great deal of data about a single oxygen outflow event. Not all outflow events are the same, but understanding one in great detail would provide significant scientific value.

"It's like if you're trying to study tornados, you could just measure the winds as various tornadoes fly by at different distances from your house," said Rowland. "You'd get a picture of what an 'average' tornado looks like. What we want to do instead is to comprehensively observe one tornado, to understand how it works in detail."

VISIONS-2 is all about checking whether and how the process for the heating and energizing of oxygen on the dayside aurora — within the polar cusp — is the same as those discovered on the night side. It's far from a foregone conclusion, as the dayside and nightside display some marked differences.

"The ion outflow in the cusp is more steady and lower energy, while that in the nightside is more bursty and can be higher energy," Rowland explained. "In addition, the environment is different between the cusp and nightside, so we're looking for commonalities and differences."

VISIONS-2 won't be the only rocket to launch from this remote location: It is the first of nine sounding rockets launching over the next 14 months as part of the Grand Challenge Initiative — Cusp. Drawing researchers from the United States, Canada, Norway, the UK and Japan, the Grand Challenge is an international collaboration to explore the northern polar cusp, hopefully cracking the code of this unusual portal between Earth and space.

VISIONS-2 is scheduled to launch from Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard rocket range in December 2018. The launch window extends from December 4 through 18.

ЦитатаA Light in the Dark: NASA Sounding Rocket Probes the Dark Regions of Space

Though stars and galaxies fill our night sky, most of the matter in the universe resides in the dark voids in between. Spread out over unfathomable distances, this cold, diffuse gas between galaxies — called the intergalactic medium, or IGM for short — hardly emits any light, making it difficult to study.

Scientists plan to launch a sounding rocket for a fifteen-minute flight Dec. 3, 2018, equipped with special ultraviolet optics, which they hope will shed light on the nature of the IGM. The Dual-channel Extreme Ultraviolet Continuum Experiment, or DEUCE for short, plans to measure starlight from a pair of nearby hot stars in the constellation Canis Major, aiming to help researchers understand how the IGM got to its current state.

Scientists know that the IGM, which is mostly hydrogen, has been blasted with high-energy radiation, causing the electrons to break apart from their atoms — a process known as ionization. Many think intense ultraviolet starlight from star-forming galaxies is responsible for ionizing the universe, but not all agree this is the sole cause. Since Earth's atmosphere blocks ultraviolet light, it is impossible to study this type of radiation from the ground. Instead, scientists must capture this light from above the atmosphere, and sounding rockets — which provide an inexpensive alternative to space telescopes — are a practical option.

DEUCE was first launched in Oct. 2017, from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. However, science data was not obtained because of an issue with the payload's attitude control system (https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2017/sounding-rocket-probes-the-dark-regions-of-space). The payload descended by parachute and was recovered. Following an extensive investigation by the NASA Sounding Rocket Program and a payload redesign, the follow-up flight was approved.

"DEUCE is about being able to better understand if and how star-forming galaxies ionized the early universe," said Nicholas Erickson, a graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder working with the project. "This ionizing light has never been measured accurately in hot stars, and DEUCE will make the first calibrated measurement of it, telling us the contribution stars could have had to helping ionize the universe."

Over two flights, DEUCE will look at two young, bright stars — first Epsilon Canis Major and later Beta Canis Major— using a telescope sensitive to ultraviolet light. These stars are close enough that their light reaches Earth before being fully absorbed by interstellar gas, allowing the scientists to measure the amount of starlight to see if it's enough to significantly contribute to the amount of ionized gas in the IGM.

"It's a hard measurement to make, because there still is neutral hydrogen between stars that is extremely effective at absorbing the starlight at these wavelengths," said Erickson. "To be seen at Earth, you need a really bright star that's close by, and there are only two stars that are viable candidates for this measurement."

DEUCE uses a microchannel plate detector — the largest ever flown in space — to measure the starlight. The mission, in addition to providing scientific data, will test this type of large UV detector for readiness in future large-scale space missions. The second DEUCE flight to look at Beta Canis Major has not yet been scheduled.

NASA-funded Twin Rockets to Tag Team the Cusp

In early December, observers in northern Norway will be treated to an unusual show: a sounding rocket double feature. Arcing up over the Norwegian sea, the first rocket will blast off to an altitude of more than 600 miles high, headed due north. Approximately two minutes later, at a lower altitude, another rocket will follow its path.

These twin rockets are chasing down a mystery about magnetic reconnection, the explosive process that allows charged particles fr om space to stream into Earth's atmosphere. Carefully observing anomalies in this stream of particles, scientists have wondered about the processes that let them in: Does magnetic reconnection turn on and off, like a faucet, or do particles course in fr om separate locations, like the distinct streams of a sprinkler?

Armed with two rockets and a clever experimental design, the scientists behind the TRICE-2 mission, short for Twin Rockets to Investigate Cusp Electrodynamics-2, hope to uncover an answer. The results promise to shed light on the fundamental process of magnetic reconnection and, in the long run, help us better predict how and when Earth's magnetic shield can suddenly become porous and let outside particles in.

Earth is surrounded by a magnetosphere, a giant magnetic shield created by the churning of liquid iron deep inside the planet. Our magnetosphere is what stands between us and a steady rain of electrically charged ions and electrons streaming from the Sun, known as the solar wind.

For the most part, it holds strong. But occasionally, it gives way.

"When the solar wind encounters Earth, the energy and field lines of the Sun's magnetic field can connect up with those of Earth," said Craig Kletzing, a physicist at the University of Iowa in Iowa City and TRICE-2's principal investigator. The magnetic reconnection process creates a bridge between the solar wind and Earth, allowing ions and electrons from the Sun to stream directly into Earth's atmosphere via a region known as the polar cusp.

"All of these field lines [where magnetic reconnection occurs] funnel down into what we call the cusp," said Stephen Fuselier, a space physicist at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas and TRICE-2 team member. "When you fly through that region, you get the time history of all the fields that you're crossing."

The polar cusp is a weak spot in our magnetic bubble — but it's also a place to investigate magnetic reconnection processes that occurred in otherwise difficult-to-access regions of Earth's magnetosphere. Researchers have measured the solar wind ions that pour in through the cusp for clues about magnetic reconnection processes that allow entry. But so far, a puzzling feature of these ions remains unexplained.

As solar wind ions race along the newly reconnected magnetic field lines, they spread themselves out like runners in a marathon. The fastest-moving ions move to the front of the pack, overtaking those moving at slower speeds. Slower-moving ions gradually fall behind. In theory, this process should create a constant, unbroken stream of particles, smoothly varying by energy levels: the highest energy ions reach Earth first, followed by slower and slower ions behind them.

But when spacecraft have measured the ions that pour in, they don't find such a smooth, unbroken stream — instead, they find abrupt transitions from high to low energies.

"What people actually observe is something that has little steps," said Kletzing. "So then the question becomes: What causes those steps?"

Puzzled by these results, scientists developed two models of magnetic reconnection that might produce them. The first model suggests that magnetic reconnection varies in time, like a faucet being turned on and off. The abrupt changes, or steps, in the data are produced because the faucet switches from on to off and vice versa, releasing particles in short spurts.

"The other possibility is that we're seeing four or five different places wh ere reconnection is happening," said Kletzing. According to this model, the steps are the result of the spacecraft passing through different magnetic reconnection events, like a finger running along the separate streams of a sprinkler. As your finger passes through one stream and abruptly enters a new one, you feel a sudden change — a step in the data.

The two rockets for the Twin Rockets to Investigate Cusp Electrodynamics, or TRICE-2, are in the launch position during a dress rehearsal at the Andøya Space Center in Norway, Dec. 1, 2018. The two NASA Black Brant XII sounding rockets are encased in an insulation form to keep the motors and payload warm. The launch window for TRICE-2 is Dec. 4–19, 2018. TRICE-2 is one of nine missions for the Grand Challenge Initiative – Cusp, an international collaboration to explore the northern polar cusp – wh ere Earth's magnetic field lines bend down to meet the poles and particles from space can enter our atmosphere.

The TRICE-2 team designed their mission to differentiate these two models. The key difference between them, they reasoned, is whether the observations should change over time.

If reconnection is turning on and off like a faucet, the specific pattern of steps you observed should be changing all the time. "If you flew through a minute or two later, the whole pattern would be different," said Kletzing.

But if reconnection is more like a sprinkler, with different streams fixed to different locations, then you should feel the same steps no matter what time you passed through them. "In that case, two minutes later you should see exactly the same pattern in the same place."

To distinguish between these two models, the TRICE-2 team will fly two rockets that will traverse the same path, approximately two minutes apart. They will be measuring the ions in the atmosphere, looking out for the steps, or abrupt changes, in ion energy levels. If the two rockets detect the steps in the same, fixed locations, that suggests they are passing through different reconnection events, and reconnection is more like a sprinkler. If they don't observe the same steps in the same location, the faucet must be turning on and off — reconnection is changing over time.

For the TRICE-2 mission, aligning the trajectories of their two rockets is especially important to their mission.

"It's not that people haven't tried this before with various satellites," said Kletzing. "But it's very hard to get two satellites to have the right distance in time and location to really make that happen."

So the TRICE-2 team will use sounding rockets, sub-orbital spacecraft that make short, targeted flights into space before falling back down to Earth. Sounding rockets can be timed and aimed precisely, adjusting their launch directions at a moment's notice to accommodate local winds and weather conditions.

The TRICE-2 mission is one of nine sounding rocket missions taking part in the Grand Challenge Initiative – Cusp, an international collaboration to explore the northern polar cusp. Over the next 13 months, researchers from the United States, Canada, Norway, the UK and Japan will fly their rockets from the rocket ranges at the Andoya Space Center and Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard to unravel the mysteries of this place wh ere Earth meets space.

The TRICE-2 mission will launch from Andoya Space Center in Andenes, Norway. The launch window extends from Dec. 4, 2018, to Dec. 19, 2018.

Two NASA sounding rockets were successfully launched Dec. 7 from Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, in Norway providing scientist a look at the process of Earth's atmosphere escaping into space.

The Visualizing Ion Outflow via Neutral Atom Sensing-2 or VISIONS-2 rockets were launched at 6:06 and 6:08 a.m. EST from the launch site operated by Norway's Andoya Space Center.

ЦитатаGovernment shutdown delays commercial launch

WASHINGTON — The ongoing partial government shutdown has led one company to delay an upcoming launch and could affect other commercial launches in the near future, including a key commercial crew mission.

Exos Aerospace had planned to launch its SARGE suborbital rocket Jan. 5 from Spaceport America in New Mexico. That launch has been delayed to Feb. 9, John Quinn, chief operating officer of the company, said Jan. 2.

Quinn said a major reason for the delay was the inability of the company to get its existing launch license from the Federal Aviation Administration's Office of Commercial Space Transportation modified. The company was seeking to modify the license to change wind-related safety calculations in order to reduce the chance of a launch scrub.

"FAA was not supporting license modifications during the shutdown, so we delayed for the potential to decrease the probability of a scrub based on the wind placard restriction in our license," he said.

The FAA, part of the Department of Transportation, is one of the government agencies affected by the partial government shutdown that started Dec. 22 when a continuing resolution funding those agencies expired. The FAA announced Dec. 22 that only "exempt" activities would continue during the shutdown. That includes "commercial space launch oversight," according to the department's shutdown plan, but no other activities related to commercial space transportation.

Quinn said that, had Exos decided to go ahead with the launch, the FAA would have assigned personnel to support it. However, the company decided to delay the launch to buy more time to get its license modified. A factor in that, he said, was limited supplies and high costs of helium, used to pressurize the vehicle's propulsion system; delaying the launch reduces the chance that helium would be wasted on a wind-related launch scrub.

The launch will be the second for SARGE, a reusable sounding rocket developed by Exos for flying payloads to the edge of space. The rocket, on its first launch Aug. 25, suffered a problem with its GPS receiver that triggered an early shutdown of its main engine. The rocket reached a peak altitude of 28 kilometers — far less than the planned 80 kilometers — before gliding back to a landing near the launch site. Had the GPS receiver not malfunctioned, the company said the rocket could have flown to nearly 90 kilometers.

CAPER-2 Launch Successful (https://www.andoyaspace.no/2019/01/04/caper-2-launch-successful/)
ЦитатаASC and NASA launched the CAPER-2 sounding rocket on January 4th, 2019, at 09:27:00 UTC.

CAPER is an abbreviation for "Cups Alfvèn and Plasma Electrodynamics Rocket" and is a mission to investigate dayside magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling. The vehicle flew through the cusp region of the Earth's magnetic field, reaching an altitude of 774 kilometers.
CAPER-2 is the fifth sounding rocket to launch in the Grand Challenge Initiative – CUSP project, an international research project between Norway, USA, Canada and Japan, involving 12 sounding rockets launched from Andøya and Ny-Ålesund between 2018 and 2020 which will study the Earth's cusp region in unprecedented detail. The basic idea behind the project is to gather scientists with individually funded sounding rocket projects investigating phenomena related to the magnetosphere and Earth's cusp regions. All participants share the collected research data between them.
Principal investigator for CAPER-2 is professor James LaBelle from Dartmouth College.

WASHINGTON — Exos Aerospace flew its SARGE reusable sounding rocket for the second time March 2, but winds kept the rocket fr om achieving its planned altitude.

The Texas-based company launched the Suborbital Autonomous Rocket with Guidance, or SARGE, rocket from Spaceport America in New Mexico at about 12:45 p.m. Eastern time March 2. The launch had been scheduled for early January but postponed twice because of issues linked to the partial government shutdown.

The launch, called "Mission 1" by Exos, reflew the same rocket it launched from the spaceport on a "Pathfinder" mission in August 2018. The rocket carried several small research payloads and was intended to reach a peak altitude of 80 kilometers. The rocket, though, reached only a peak altitude of about 20 kilometers before gliding back to a landing about 1.2 kilometers from the launch pad.

John Quinn, chief operating officer of Exos, said in a later email that engine shut down when it hit a lim it for instantaneous impact point (IIP) on its trajectory. The vehicle is designed to shut down its engine during ascent if it runs the risk of impacting outside a "safety circle" seven kilometers in radius around the launch site. That's intended to protect the major buildings at Spaceport America, including the hangar for anchor tenant Virgin Galactic, that are 7.1 kilometers away, and lowers the company's insurance costs.

The rocket's control system wasn't good enough to overcome high winds on ascent that threatened to push the instantaneous impact point outside the safety circle. "As the winds buffeted the rocket the gimbal correction was insufficient to keep it close enough to center of the circle to keep the IIP within the 7 km circle," he wrote.

Despite missing its planned altitude, Quinn said the flight was otherwise successful. "This was a great test. Any flight wh ere Exos and its payload customers can walk away with another set of data and an intact vehicle/payload makes for a good day."

Exos says it will move into regular commercial operations of the SARGE vehicle, but didn't state when their next launch would take place. The company also plans to use SARGE as the basis for an orbital launch vehicle called Jaguar able to place payloads weighing up to 100 kilograms into low Earth orbit.

Details:

Another great night in Abisko! Last night at approximately 25 minutes after midnight we noticed a set of unusual blue lights on the webcam, which at first could only be described as a UFO. As time passed, the blue lights expanded and looked like two giant squid dancing in the northern sky with an impressive aurora display as its backdrop. The combination of the blue light, the auroras and the Suns orange glow on the horizon combined to make on otherworldly scene! I have lived in Abisko for nearly a decade and am still surprised by just how amazing a night in the National Park can be. As a matter of fact, our webcam has been taking a picture every five minutes for nearly 10 years these images are by far the most exciting Ive ever seen it record! What a fantastic way to close out the 2018/19 aurora season!

Im one of the scientists working with this launch, so I was stationed up at Alomar Observatory and we knew exactly when to expect it. Even so, we were all stunned by how spectacular the display was, as it unfolded.

The Black Brant XIA is a three stage sounding rocket that uses Talos and Terrier Mk 70 boost stages and a Black Brant Mk1 sustainer stage. Despite its name, the Black Brant Mk1 is the latest in many versions of the Black Brant, and is really an uprated Black Brant V

The Black Brant series was a Canadian offshot of the British Skylark sounding rocket design, and first flew from Fort Churchill in Canada in 1959.

Last night (April 5th 2019) NASA's AZURE mission successfully launched 2 sounding rockets back-to-back from the Andøya Space Center in Norway. They released clouds of glowing tracers into the upper atmosphere (the background green is the real aurora though) to study and track the flow of neutral and charged particles in the ionosphere. Each dot is at a different altitude and notice they migrate at a different speed and direction!

I'm at Alomar Observatory in northern Norway as part of the AZURE mission (Auroral Zone Upwelling Rocket Experiment). Two rockets were launched from Andøya Space Center, and my part was to help with optical observations from the nearby highpoint here at Alomar Observatory. I've been here a week waiting for both the weather and the science conditions to cooperate for the launch, but the mission has been waiting for a launch much longer than that - they tried to launch last year but after waiting for two weeks they never found the right conditions, and I think the same might have happened the year before (2017). So this launch was a long time coming.

The AZURE mission used sounding rockets to release these glowing tracer clouds in the upper atmosphere, from around 100km to up to 250km altitude. Observers at the ground sites (like me) then use optical instruments - which are mostly off-the-shelf dSLR cameras - to track the way the clouds move over the next ~30 minutes. This allows investigators to learn about the winds and magnetic fields at these altitudes.

This is a time-lapse of NASA's AZURE rocket launch to research auroras and the upper atmosphere. I coincidentally witnessed the launch of the two rockets and their beautiful payload deployment travelling on MV Trollfjord on Vestfjord in Norway.
While we were watching the after-effects of a beautiful northern lights display, the rockets were launched from the Andøya Space Center only about 180 km away to the north. We saw two orange dots rise into the sky and disappear. A short while later strange lights and colorful, expanding clouds appeared I first did not have an explanation for. It looked like an alien attack  ;)  A quick internet search showed that we had witnessed aurora research conducted by NASA: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/...

NASA successfully launched the Auroral Zone Upwelling Rocket Experiment or AZURE mission on April 5 from the Andøya Space Center in Norway.

Two Black Brant XI-A sounding rockets were launched at 6:14 and 6:16 p.m. EDT on April 5 carrying scientific instruments for studying the energy exchange within an aurora.

The AZURE mission (https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/sounding-rocket-mission-will-trace-auroral-winds) is designed to make measurements of the atmospheric density and temperature with instruments on the rockets and deploying visible gas tracers, trimethyl aluminum (TMA) and a barium/strontium mixture, which ionizes when exposed to sunlight. The vapors were released over the Norwegian Sea at 71 through 150 miles altitude.

These mixtures, using substances similar to those found in fireworks, created colorful clouds that allow researchers to track the flow of neutral and charged particles with the auroral wind. By tracking the movement of these colorful clouds via ground-based photography and triangulating their moment-by-moment position in three dimensions, AZURE will provide valuable data on the vertical and horizontal flow of particles in two key regions of the ionosphere over a range of different altitudes.

Many people believe the Earth's atmosphere "ends" some 20-30 miles above the ground. However, the air we breathe does not abruptly end at some predefined point — instead, it gradually thins. At 150 to 200 miles above Earth, the "air" is extremely thin and these vapor clouds disperse rapidly and follow the winds which can be moving at a few hundred miles per hour.

AZURE is one of nine missions being conducted as part of the Grand Challenge Initiative (GCI) – Cusp (https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/science-on-the-cusp-sounding-rockets-head-north), a series of international sounding rocket missions planned for launch in 2018 - 2020.

NASA and U.S. scientists are joining those from Norway, Japan, Canada and other countries to investigate the physics of heating and charged particle precipitation in this region called the geomagnetic cusp — one of the few places on Earth with easy access to the electrically charged solar wind that pervades the solar system.

NASA previously conducted two missions in December 2018 and two in January 2019 as part of the Initiative.  The final two NASA missions — the Cusp Heating Investigation and the Cusp Region Experiment — are scheduled for November 2019.

AZURE is supported through NASA's Sounding Rocket Program at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. NASA's Heliophysics Division manages the sounding rocket program.

CLASP-2: Extreme Rocket Science in the Desert

NASA scientists and engineers are in the New Mexico desert preparing to launch a research rocket equipped with a cutting-edge Sun-gazing instrument to study the solar atmosphere. The CLASP-2 mission is making strides towards its upcoming launch, set for April 11, 2019, fr om the White Sands Missile Range in the New Mexico desert.

CLASP-2, short for Chromospheric Layer Spectropolarimeter-2, is a sounding rocket mission. Smaller, more affordable and faster to design and build than large-scale satellite missions, sounding rockets offer a way for the team to test their latest ideas and instruments — and achieve rapid science results.

The CLASP-2 instrument uses ultraviolet light to look for hidden details in a complex region of the Sun's atmosphere called the chromosphere. Scientists hope that CLASP-2 experiment will help unlock new clues about how the Sun's energy travels up through the layers of its atmosphere, and eventually out into space.

To achieve that goal, a Black Brandt IX sounding rocket will catapult the instrument above Earth's atmosphere wh ere it will observe the Sun for about five minutes. There, it will take images, as well as polarization spectra – observations that restrict incoming light to a specific direction and then record the intensity of individual wavelengths of ultraviolet light. The team is focusing on obtaining polarization measurements never before gathered at these ultraviolet wavelengths. The experiment will then parachute back to the desert to be recovered by helicopter.

CLASP-2 is a follow-on mission to the Chromospheric Lyman-Alpha Spectro-Polarimeter, which gave us the first-ever polarization measurements of ultraviolet light emitted from the sun's chromosphere. Previous polarization measurements were restricted to visible and infrared light emitted from other regions of the Sun's atmosphere.

Polarization measurements are important because they provide information on the strength and direction of the Sun's magnetic field, which plays a central role in sculpting the solar atmosphere. Understanding how the magnetic field works is vital to predicting powerful solar activity and protecting space and Earth technology from potential damage from geomagnetic storms.
On the ground, researchers will use advanced computer modeling to interpret the data collected by CLASP-2, and better understand how the energy moves through the chromosphere. And even as CLASP-2 uncovers new information, scientists working with its data will rely on data from other observatories to help put those details in context.

CLASP-2's launch and data collection will be coordinated with two satellites: NASA's Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, or IRIS--a satellite observatory that captures non-polarized spectra and images of the Sun's atmosphere--and the joint JAXA/NASA Hinode satellite observatory, making magnetic measurements at the Sun's surface as well as images and spectroscopy in the much hotter atmospheric layer known as the corona. Also taking coordinated data are the Dunn Solar Telescope in Sunspot, New Mexico, and the Goode Solar Telescope in Big Bear, California.

Truly a global mission, CLASP-2 is an international collaboration led by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center with contributions from Japan, Spain and France. CLASP-2 is supported through NASA's Sounding Rocket Program at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. NASA's Heliophysics Division manages the sounding rocket program.

A NASA rocket mission to study disturbances in the upper atmosphere, which interfere with communication and technology systems, will form night-time white artificial clouds visible by residents of the Republic of the Marshall Islands during two rocket flights to occur between June 9 – 21, 2019.

This the second flight of the Waves and Instabilities fr om a Neutral Dynamo, or WINDY, mission. The mission this time is referred to as Too-WINDY -- it's catchier than WINDY 2.

Too-WINDY will study a phenomenon that occurs in the ionosphere – a layer of charged particles in the upper atmosphere. Known as equatorial spread F, or ESF, these disturbances occur after sunset at latitudes near the equator in part of the ionosphere known as the F region. The disturbances can interfere with radio communication, navigation and imaging systems and pose a hazard to technology and society that depends on it.

The Too-WINDY mission consists of two NASA suborbital sounding rockets that will be launched five minutes apart in a window between 8 p.m. and 3.a.m. local time (4 a.m. and 1 p.m. EDT) June 9 - 21 fr om Roi-Namur. The Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands is near the magnetic equator, wh ere post-sunset ionosphere storms are more intense, making the site an ideal location for these studies.

The first rocket launched, a two-stage 47-foot long Black Brant IX rocket, will carry and release both tri-methyl aluminum (TMA) and lithium. The release of the lithium vapors is not visible to the naked-eye but can be viewed with the special cameras.

The TMA will form white artificial clouds that glow in the night sky. Scientists on the ground and from a NASA Langley Research Center aircraft will photograph the movement of these clouds to measure the winds and energetic particles that are in motion in the upper atmosphere. The clouds are expected to be visible for about 30 minutes.

The TMA is deployed between 50 and 112 miles altitude, while the lithium is deployed between 155 and 210 miles altitude. Both substances, which are harmless after release from the experiment, move with the atmospheric winds and can therefore be used to determine the wind speeds and direction over the area wh ere these ionosphere storms are occurring.

TMA reacts spontaneously on contact with oxygen to produce a pale white glow visible from the ground. For the Too-WINDY mission, sunlight reflected by the Moon, will illuminate lithium producing an emission that can be detected with cameras equipped with narrow-band filters. Using moonlight allows the launches to occur later in the evening when the critical ESF conditions occur.

The second rocket, also a Black Brant IX, will be launched five minutes after the first rocket. The second rocket carries instruments to measure ionosphere densities and electric and magnetic fields present in these storms.

During WINDY, launched in September 2017, the second rocket payload did not obtain useful data. Improvements have been made to the payload's instruments to correct for the anomaly during the WINDY mission.

The ionosphere is defined as the layer of Earth's atmosphere that is ionized by solar and cosmic radiation. Ionization occurs when incoming energetic radiation strips electrons from atoms and molecules, creating temporarily charged particles. The nighttime ionosphere has two layers E and F. Disturbances in the F layer, the layer studied by Too-WINDY, degrade radio and radar signals at magnetic latitudes. Predicting these disturbances ahead of time, could help improve the reliability of space-borne and ground-based communication systems.

Too-WINDY attempts to answer questions about the origin of ESF by measuring how horizontal thermosphere winds influence the formation of ESF, as well as taking direct measurements of ionosphere densities and electric and magnetic fields inside these storms.

Data from the ARPA Long-Range Tracking and Instrumentation Radar, or ALTAIR, located on Kwajalein Atoll will play a key a role in the mission. ALTAIR is used to monitor the state of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere in order to determine when the large-scale disruptions occur and will tell the scientists when to launch the rockets. ALTAIR also will be used to monitor the evolution of the ESF after the rockets launch.

Too-WINDY is supported by researchers from Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York; Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina; and Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

ROCKETS, EVAPORATING DROPLETS AND X-RAYING METALS

7 June 2019
Years of preparation, and the finale is over in six minutes. This month a sounding rocket will launch two ESA experiments to an altitude of 260 km to provide six minutes of weightlessness as they free-fall back to Earth.

Rockets carrying satellites into orbit are typically launched fr om sites around the equator, such as Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. There are alternatives for experiments in microgravity and ESA runs Maser campaigns from the Esrange Space Center in Sweden, shooting 400 kg worth of scientific equipment into the sky.

This year's campaign will host investigations looking at the finer details of metal casting and how fluids evaporate.

Maser 14 configuration

Temperature control is a constant preoccupation for engineers on Earth, but even more so in space wh ere the extreme environment requires innovative solutions to keep equipment and astronauts at the right temperature.

The ARLES experiment (Advanced Research on Liquid Evaporation in Space) investigates how liquids evaporate in microgravity. The research focuses on understanding how liquids can best be used to transfer heat and could help improve thermal control systems in space.

The experiment will repeatedly evaporate droplets of less than 10 microliters in microgravity under different conditions – including adding an electric field to the mix – to see how they behave. Infrared video and interferometers record the process for researchers around the world to analyse.

One liquid will include graphene nanoparticles, a material which is of particular interest among the scientific community. The experiment will also increase understanding of how nanoparticles in the fluid coats surfaces as the fluid evaporates.

Daniele Mangini, ESA's science coordinator for the experiment says, "This technique could be a novel way of creating smart coatings, membranes and sensors and even create complex nano-structures. Nano-particles are difficult to test in the closed environment on the International Space Station, so a sounding rocket campaign is ideal for this experiment.

"Weightlessness is necessary for this analysis. On Earth, gravity causes the deposits to spread unevenly, which is often detrimental for applications. It is more difficult to investigate the underlying phenomena because many effects, such as sedimentation, thermo-capillarity and natural convection make it hard to focus on what we are interested in researching.

"The six exciting minutes in microgravity will allow the scientific team to disentangle the processes, helping to understand characteristic signatures during nano-particle deposition and self-assembly."

Metal crystals

In the second ESA experiment, particles will also be added to a molten metal alloy to improve the resulting properties. The XRMON experiment is a recurrent flyer on sounding rockets and is investigating how metal alloys form, searching to improve the materials we use in our everyday life.

On this 14th Maser campaign a 0.2-mm-thin piece of aluminium-copper alloy will be melted and then solidified in weightlessness. An x-ray beam will illuminate the metal sample and a camera will record it, similar to a medical radiography.

"We teach how metals solidify to students in university, and this really allows us to see it happening, in weightlessness" says ESA's science coordinator for this experiment Wim Sillekens.

Casting metal

Researchers are interested in how microstructures form as the metal solidifies.

"On Earth, the crystals in this alloy will rise in the liquid as they form – somewhat like how water ice crystals become ice cubes and will rise to the top of your drink," continues Wim, "in weightlessness there is no buoyancy – in space an ice cube would stay suspended in your drink – allowing us to investigate the crystal-forming process more easily."

The XRMON experiment ran on the Maser 12 campaign in 2012, and then on the Maser 13 campaign in 2015, but with different parameters allowing researchers to compare data and the cast alloy to further improve techniques.

Maser 13 recovery

It only takes the Maser rocket 45 seconds to leave the atmosphere and it lands back on Earth in less than 15 minutes. Parachutes deploy to lessen the impact of touchdown to 30 km/h in the wilderness of Sweden.

Antonio Verga, ESA's head of non-Space Station payloads and platforms, says "Helicopters will return the experiments to Esrange and the whole process will be completed in two hours, but the unique results typically give many years of data to process and analyse!"

The flights are part of ESA's SciSpace programme that allows researchers to run experiments in altered gravity – from hypergravity to the International Space Station – to investigate our Universe and improve the technology we use in space and in everyday life. Another sounding rocket campaign will be held in October this year.

Another platform for microgravity experimentation is the Space Rider (http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Transportation/Space_Rider) laboratory. To be launched on a Vega-C (https://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Transportation/Launch_vehicles/Vega-C) rocket, the high-tech space lab can fit up to 800 kg of payloads inside the environmentally controlled cargo bay that will run in low-Earth orbit for a minimum of two months before returning its payloads to Earth.

Like sounding rockets, Space Rider will enable a range of experiments in microgravity and open opportunities for educational missions, starting in 2022.

Rockets are the backbone of all space-based endeavours. ESA in partnership with industry is developing next-generation space transportation vehicles, Ariane 6, Vega-C, and Space Rider. At Space19+, ESA will propose further enhancements to these programmes and introduce new ideas to help Europe work together to build a robust space transportation economy. This week, take a look at what ESA is doing to ensure continued autonomous access to space for Europe and join the conversation online by following the hashtag #RocketWeek

University and community college students will boost their technical skills as rocket scientists building experiments for space flight during Rocket Week June 14-21, 2019, at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
...
Rocket Week culminates at 5:30 a.m. EDT, Thursday, June 20, with the launch of a NASA Terrier-Improved Orion suborbital sounding rocket carrying the students' experiments. The rocket is 36 feet long and the payload weighs 667 pounds.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 4:30 a.m. EDT on launch day for viewing the flight. Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5 a.m. on the Wallops Ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops) site. Launch updates also are available via the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/NASA_Wallops) sites. Facebook Live coverage begins at 5:15 a.m. The rocket launch is expected to be seen fr om the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland.

The rocket will carry 28 experiments (measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation counts) fr om the RockOn! Program, nine experiments in the RockSat-C program and more than 80 small cubes with experiments developed by middle school and high school students as part of the Cubes in Space program, a partnership between idoodlelearning inc. and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

The rocket will fly the student experiments to nearly 73-miles altitude. The experiments will land via parachute in the Atlantic Ocean wh ere they will be recovered by boat. The participants should have their experiments returned to them later in the day to begin their data analysis.

Conducted with the Colorado (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/) and Virginia (http://www.vsgc.odu.edu/) Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its twelfth year and RockSat-C its eleventh year.

Participants in RockOn! receive instruction on the basics required to develop a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere during the school year they design and build a more complicated experiment for rocket flight.

"The RockOn! and RockSat-C programs have shown that they are excellent training grounds for students exploring future careers in the aerospace industry," said Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.  "The interest in the programs continue to grow and is evident as this year was the earliest that we filled the openings for RockOn!."

The RockOn!,and RockSat-C programs are supported by the NASA Sounding Rocket Program. RockOn! also is supported by NASA's Office of  (http://www.nasa.gov/education)STEM Engagement and NASA's National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program in partnership with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, as well as the program participants.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding rocket program for the agency.

  • Cubes in Space
    Cubes in Space is an educational program for students age 11-18 to design experiments in a 40 mm cube and launch on a sounding rocket. The program builds awareness in the pre-college age group about easily accessible, short-duration, and relatively low-cost spaceflight missions and opportunities in support of scientific exploration objectives.
  • Clemson University, South Carolina
    The Clemson University team is developing a single segment of a spring based soft robotic arm to better analyze the forces and actuation of soft robotic devices during flight. From this experiment, the team is hoping to produce deflection analysis using a camera and motors that will adjust the robotic arm to stay fixed on a single point throughout the duration of flight. In addition, the team created an outreach program for local students to encourage interest in STEM and will fly a GPS receiver that was discussed and analyzed through the program.
  • Delgado Community College, New Orleans
    The Delgado Community College Shoe LAACES team is measuring the intensity of radiation and relative abundance of components produced by cosmic rays in the atmosphere using a Geiger Muller Tube and Cosmic Watch Scintillator system. In addition, the team will measure and record environmental data (pressure, temperature, humidity) and acceleration data throughout flight. The team hopes to use their data to baseline future cosmic ray components and assist cosmic ray intensity research at their college.
  • Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, New York
    The Hobart and William Smith Colleges team is studying the magnetic fields of the Earth and muon flux at different altitudes, and studying materials that will dampen vibration in order to open up new possibilities in the future for flying more sensitive equipment on sounding rockets. In addition, the team has created an outreach program for local middle school students to understand the science behind their mission and promote youth interest in STEM.
  • Langston University, Oklahoma
    The Langston University Lunar-BC team is studying the effect of suborbital micro-gravity effects on immune cell regulation. The team is placing plant and probiotic metabolite extractions in vials at varying distances from the center of their canister to show the effects at a molecular level of gene expression changes in activated immune cells during launch and at apogee. In addition, the team is flying environmental sensors (temperature, pressure, humidity) and an accelerometer to refine their results. The project is in conjunction with their existing NASA project investigating natural countermeasures to astronaut immune system dysregulation.
  • Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey
    The Stevens Institute of Technology team is conducting three separate experiments. First, the team is creating a reflow oven capable of soldering surface mount electronic components to a printed circuit board in the microgravity environment. With the oven reaching internal temperatures of 200 C and studying heat dissipation from the high temperature experiment, this will inform the development of a reflow soldering oven to be used on long duration manned space missions. Next, the team is creating a system that can record accelerometer data in the payload during launch that will help to build a model of the rocket telemetry. This will be accomplished with a pair of two-axis accelerometers, with one acting as a control and the other utilizing a passive material to provide filtering. The final experiment is measuring high-speed boundary layer transition from laminar to turbulent pressure waves using both a high and low frequency pressure transducer. The team hopes to characterize the transition phases of the boundary layer through various pressures along the surface of the vehicle.
  • Temple University, Philadelphia
    The goal of the Temple University Space Owls experiment is to detect muon radiation in the upper atmosphere while gathering auxiliary sensor data to better understand the performance of the design. After gathering the accelerometer data, the payload will be modeled with 3D software to show the orientation and activity of the canister during flight. Through this experiment, the team hopes their results will benefit not only scientists who study this field but also engineers and astronauts who design systems for these altitudes.
  • University of Delaware, Newark
    The University of Delaware team is interested in studying the performance and effect of radiation on a Gallium Nitride High Electron Mobility Transistors semiconductor during a sounding rocket flight. The team will baseline their results by measuring the drain-source voltage/current throughout flight and will see the effects of radiation on IV characterizes. In addition, the team continues to refine a reusable inertial navigation and sensor measurement system from previous missions to extend to future RockSat-C missions. Finally, the team is creating a method for "plug and play" experiments for local students. This will enable the students to attach smaller experiments to the main mission to allow all units to function autonomously and without interference.
  • University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
    The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee SEDS team is observing the effects of rocket flight in the lower atmosphere on bacterial DNA using multiple sensors to measure conditions during flight. In addition, the team will observe the effects that minimizing radiation has on DNA through the use of radiation shielding and test the effectiveness of different materials. The team believes the data will be useful in determining the survivability of microorganisms in space flight.
  • West Virginia University, Morgantown
    The West Virginia University RockSat-C team is divided into two subgroups: Blue Team and Gold Team. The Blue Team is studying the correlation of the accepted Earth magnetic field models with a MLX90393 magnetometer and measuring the change in radiation throughout flight while calculating an estimated altitude based on the radiation level encountered. In addition, the team is estimating attitude and spin rate using an inertial measurement unit and receiving and saving GPS band radio frequencies on a HackRF Software Defined Radio for later comparison with the known flight GPS data from Gold Team. The Gold Team is using on-board videography to gauge the accuracy of coastal matching by comparing calculated position from collect images to measure GPS position. The team hopes to calculate rocket telemetry from the optical coastal matching from their GoPro and compare the results to the tracked telemetry results from the GPS.

NASA Launches Student Experiments to Space on a Suborbital Rocket

More than 200 university students fr om across the United States witnessed the launching of their experiments aboard a NASA suborbital sounding rocket Thursday, June 20, 2019, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The launch, conducted at 5:30 a.m. EDT, is part of the RockOn! and RockSat-C programs designed for students to learn and apply skills in building experiments for suborbital space flight.

"Attending the RockOn! Workshop has not only given me hands-on experience with assembling a payload from start to finish, it has also helped me practice effective teamwork. Learning from peers, helpers, and staff while being at the Wallops Facility has been inspiring and incredible. I look forward to taking newfound knowledge and techniques and applying them to future endeavors," said Katie Pighini, a junior astronomy and astrophysics major at Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania.
Participants in RockOn! receive instruction on the basics required to develop a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere during the school year they design and build a more complicated experiment.

Conducted with the Colorado (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/) and Virginia (http://www.vsgc.odu.edu/) Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its twelfth year and RockSat-C its eleventh year.

DeVonte Patterson, a senior computer science major at Langston University in Oklahoma, said, "The chance for me to be a part of ROCKON! is a memory for the books. Through this program, I was able to make positive and productive use of my talent and education. Over the course of one week, I was able to spend many hours listening and talking about NASA stem opportunities that align with my goals and plans. This was a rewarding highlight. Because of this experience, I'm more excited than ever to pursue a career at NASA." 
 
The 40-foot tall rocket carried 28 experiments (measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation counts) from the RockOn! Program, nine experiments in the RockSat-C program and more than 80 small cubes with experiments developed by middle school and high school students flew in the nose cone as part of the Cubes in Space program, a partnership between idoodlelearning inc. and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.

Launched aboard a 2-stage Terrier-Improved Orion rocket, the experiments flew to an altitude of 73 miles and were recovered from the Atlantic Ocean.  The students will receive their experiments late morning June 20 to begin their data analysis.

NASA's Sounding Rocket Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is conducted at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) manages the sounding rocket program for the agency.

WASHINGTON — A reusable suborbital rocket developed by Exos Aerospace suffered a loss of attitude control seconds after liftoff on a test flight June 29, but the rocket was still able to glide safely back to Earth.

Exos' Suborbital Autonomous Rocket with GuidancE, or SARGE, rocket lifted off from Spaceport America in New Mexico at about 2 p.m. Eastern. In the company's webcast, the rocket started gyrating seconds after liftoff before disappearing from view.

Controllers were able to reestablish some control of the rocket, aborting the flight. The rocket deployed a drogue parachute and parafoil while venting unused propellant. The rocket slowly descended under that parafoil, landing within view of the launch pad 14 minutes after liftoff.

"We had a performance challenge on our gimbal control for one reason or another," John Quinn, chief operating officer of Exos, said in brief comments at the end of the company's webcast. "It's a very, very sad day. However, any day you recover a rocket it is a good day."

Quinn didn't elaborate on the problem that caused the anomaly after liftoff, but expressed optimism the problem will be quickly identified and corrected. "Great improvement from last time on the recovery," he said of the vehicle's landing. "We'll be doing this again soon."

This launch, called Mission 3 by Exos, came after two earlier flights of SARGE in August 2018 (https://spacenews.com/exos-aerospace-launches-sarge-suborbital-rocket/) and this March (https://spacenews.com/exos-aerospace-reflies-suborbital-rocket/). Both those launches suffered some issues that prevented them from reaching the edge of space, but in neither case were those problems as severe as for this flight.

The company thought those earlier problems had been corrected. Quinn noted on the webcast prior to launch that the company had identified 93 lessons learned from the March launch that they incorporated into Mission 3.

The rocket was carrying educational, research and technology demonstration payloads from nine customers on this launch, ranging from a dust aggregation experiment from the University of Central Florida to a biomedical experiment for the Mayo Clinic. Exos expected the rocket to reach a peak altitude of more than 80 kilometers if all went as planned, providing those payloads with a brief period of microgravity before returning to Earth.

A successful flight, the company said prior to launch, would have allowed the company to move into more routine commercial operations of the vehicle, including making it eligible for indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts from NASA's Flight Opportunities program. "With a successful flight we will leave the testing phase," Quinn said in a pre-launch statement.

Exos also hoped a successful test would allow it to move ahead with a small orbital launch vehicle called Jaguar. That vehicle will feature a reusable first stage using technology developed for SARGE, and be capable of placing 100 kilograms into low Earth orbit. The first launch of Jaguar is planned for late 2022, and Quinn said on the webcast the company is starting to hire personnel to work on that vehicle.

Students fr om across the United States witnessed the launching of their experiments aboard a NASA suborbital sounding rocket Thursday, June 20, 2019, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The rocket will carry 28 experiments (measuring acceleration, humidity, pressure, temperature and radiation counts) from the RockOn! Program. Participants in RockOn! receive instruction on the basics required to develop a scientific payload for flight on a suborbital rocket. After learning the basics in RockOn!, students may then participate in RockSat-C, wh ere during the school year they design and build a more complicated experiment.

Conducted with the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortia, RockOn! is in its twelfth year and RockSat-C its eleventh year.

Shining (Star)light on the Search for Life
ЦитатаSummary:
    [/li]
  • To find life on other planets, scientists look for traces of gases produced by living things


  • Some stars may produce these gases in a planet without life


  • The SISTINE sounding rocket studies stars to find which gases are valid signs of life


In the hunt for life on other worlds, astronomers scour over planets that are light-years away. They need ways to identify life from afar — but what counts as good evidence?

Our own planet provides some inspiration. Microbes fill the air with methane; photosynthesizing plants expel oxygen. Perhaps these gases might be found wherever life has taken hold.

But on worlds very different from our own, putative signs of life can be stirred up by non-biological processes. To know a true sign when you see it, astronomer Kevin France at the University of Colorado, Boulder, says, you must look beyond the planet itself, all the way to the gleaming star it orbits.

To this end, France and his team designed the SISTINE mission. Flying on a sounding rocket for a 15-minute flight, it will observe far-off stars to help interpret signs of life on the planets that orbit them. The mission will launch from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico in the early morning hours of Aug. 5, 2019.

When Earth Is a Bad Example
Спойлер
Shortly after Earth formed 4.6 billion years ago, it was enveloped by a noxious atmosphere. Volcanoes spewed methane and sulfur. The air teemed with up to 200 times more carbon dioxide than today's levels.

It wasn't for another billion and a half years that molecular oxygen, which contains two oxygen atoms, entered the scene. It was a waste product, discarded by ancient bacteria through photosynthesis. But it kick-started what became known as the Great Oxidization Event, permanently changing Earth's atmosphere and paving the way for more complex lifeforms (https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2004-01/bc-ott012204.php).

"We would not have large amounts of oxygen in our atmosphere if we didn't have that surface life," France said.

Oxygen is known as a biomarker: a chemical compound associated with life. Its presence in Earth's atmosphere hints at the lifeforms lurking below. But as sophisticated computer models have now shown, biomarkers on Earth aren't always so trustworthy for exoplanets, or planets orbiting stars elsewhere in the universe.

France points to M-dwarf stars to make this case. Smaller and colder than our Sun, M-dwarfs account for nearly three-quarters of the Milky Way's stellar population. To understand exoplanets that orbit them, scientists simulated Earth-sized planets circling M-dwarfs. Differences from Earth quickly emerged.

M-dwarfs generate intense ultraviolet light. When that light struck the simulated Earth-like planet, it ripped the carbon from carbon dioxide, leaving behind free molecular oxygen. UV light also broke up molecules of water vapor, releasing single oxygen atoms. The atmospheres created oxygen — but without life.

"We call these false-positive biomarkers," France said. "You can produce oxygen on an Earth-like planet through photochemistry alone."

Earth's low oxygen levels without life were a kind of fluke – thanks, in part, to our interaction with our Sun. Exoplanet systems with different stars might be different. "If we think we understand a planet's atmosphere but don't understand the star it orbits, we're probably going to get things wrong," France said.

To Know a Planet, Study its Star

France and his team designed SISTINE to better understand host stars and their effects on exoplanet atmospheres. Short for Suborbital Imaging Spectrograph for Transition region Irradiance from Nearby Exoplanet host stars, SISTINE measures the high-energy radiation from these stars. With knowledge about host stars' spectra, scientists can better distinguish true biomarkers from false-positives on their orbiting planets.

To make these measurements, SISTINE uses a spectrograph, an instrument that separates light into its component parts.

"Spectra are like fingerprints," said Jane Rigby, an astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, who uses the methodology. "It's how we find out what things are made of, both on our planet and as we look out into the universe."

SISTINE measures spectra in wavelengths from 100 to 160 nanometers, a range of far-UV light that, among other things, can create oxygen, possibly generating a false-positive. Light output in this range varies with the mass of the star — meaning stars of different masses will almost surely differ from our Sun.

SISTINE can also measure flares, or bright stellar explosions, which release intense doses of far-UV light all at once. Frequent flares could turn a habitable environment into a lethal one (https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/flares-may-threaten-planet-habitability-near-red-dwarfs).

The SISTINE mission will fly on a Black Brant IX sounding rocket. Sounding rockets make short, targeted flights into space before falling back to Earth; SISTINE's flight gives it about five minutes observing time. Though brief, SISTINE can see stars in wavelengths inaccessible to observatories like the Hubble Space Telescope (https://hubblesite.org/).

Two launches are scheduled. The first, from White Sands in August, will calibrate the instrument. SISTINE will fly 174 miles above Earth's surface to observe NGC 6826, a cloud of gas surrounding a white dwarf star located about 2,000 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. NGC 6826 is bright in UV light and shows sharp spectral lines — a clear target for checking their equipment.

After calibration, the second launch will follow in 2020 from the Arnhem Space Centre in Nhulunbuy, Australia. There they will observe the UV spectra of Alpha Centauri A and B, the two largest stars in the three-star Alpha Centauri system. At 4.37 light-years away, these stars are our closest stellar neighbors and prime targets for exoplanet observations. (The system is home to Proxima Centauri B (https://exoplanets.nasa.gov/exoplanet-catalog/7167/proxima-centauri-b/), the closest exoplanet to Earth.)

Testing New Tech
Спойлер
Both SISTINE's observations and the technology used to acquire them are designed with future missions in mind.

One is NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (https://www.nasa.gov/webb), currently set to launch in 2021. The deep space observatory will see visible to mid-infrared light — useful for detecting exoplanets orbiting M-dwarfs. SISTINE observations can help scientists understand the light from these stars in wavelengths that Webb can't see.

SISTINE also carries novel UV detector plates and new optical coatings on its mirrors, designed to help them better reflect rather than absorb extreme UV light. Flying this technology on SISTINE helps test them for NASA's future large UV/optical space telescopes.

By capturing stellar spectra and advancing technology for future missions, SISTINE links what we know with what we've yet to learn. That's when the real work starts. "Our job as astronomers is to piece those different data sets together to tell a complete story," Rigby said.

University and community college students from across the country will complete their summer vacation on high note as they send their projects into space on a NASA two-stage Terrier-Improved Malemute suborbital sounding rocket Aug.12, 2019, from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The projects are a mix of technology and science experiments including developing spacecraft reentry and thermal protection systems, measuring cosmic rays and gathering organic molecules in space for DNA sequencing,

The launch of the 44-foot tall rocket is scheduled between 5:30 and 9:30 a.m. EDT.  The backup launch dates are August 13 - 16.

After flying to around 91 miles altitude, the payload, with the experiments, will descend by parachute and is expected to land 15 minutes after launch in the Atlantic Ocean, about 64 miles off the Virginia coast. The experiments and any stored data will be provided to the students later in the day following sea recovery of the payload.

The NASA Visitor Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/visitorcenter) at Wallops will open at 4:30 a.m. on launch day for viewing the flight. The rocket launch is expected to be only seen from the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland.

Live coverage of the mission is scheduled to begin at 5:10 a.m. on the Wallops the Wallops Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF) site.

The experiments are being flown through the RockSat-X program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/). RockSat-X is the most advanced of NASA's three-phase sounding rocket program for students.  The RockOn launches are at the entry level, then progress to the intermediate level RockSat-C missions and then RockSat-X.

Giovanni Rosanova, chief of the Sounding Rockets Program Office at Wallops, said, "RockOn and RockSat have shown to be valuable programs in developing the skills of our future scientists, technicians and engineers. As NASA returns to the Moon and goes on to Mars, these students will be needed in our future workforce to carry on these ambitious missions, as well as science missions to understand the planet Earth and our universe."

Participating institutions in this flight are the Arapahoe Community College, Littleton, Colorado; Community College of Aurora, Colorado; Red Rocks Community College, Lakewood, Colorado; College of the Canyons, Santa Clarita, California; the University of Puerto Rico, San Juan; University of Kentucky, Lexington; University of Maryland, College Park; University of Nebraska, Lincoln; and Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, New York.

Additional participants from West Virginia include West Virginia University, Morgantown; Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, Martinsburg; West Virginia State University, Institute; West Virginia Wesleyan College,  Buckhannon; and NASA's IV & V Facility in Fairmont.

RockSat-X is part of a three-tier program that introduces secondary institution students to building experiments for space flight and requires them to expand their skills to develop and build more complex projects as they progress through the programs. RockSat-X experiments are flown approximately 20 miles higher in altitude than those in  the RockOn and RockSat-C programs, providing more flight time in space

"This will be the ninth flight of a RockSat-X payload," said Chris Koehler, director of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium. "The program has provided opportunities for more than 1000 students to participate in developing an experiment for spaceflight, which has been beneficial as they have joined such organizations as NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Space-X, Lockheed Martin, DigitalGlobe, Northrop Grumman and many others after graduation."

NASA's Sounding Rockets Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) is managed at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home), which is managed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) in Greenbelt, Maryland. NASA's Heliophysics Division (http://www.nasa.gov/sunearth) funds the Sounding Rockets Program (http://www.nasa.gov/soundingrockets) for the agency.

The experiments being flown on this RockSat-X flight are:

Community Colleges of Colorado

The Debris Orbital Tumbler and Thermal Sensor (DOTTS) project is a collaboration between three community colleges in Colorado: Arapahoe Community College, Community College of Aurora, and Red Rocks Community College. Their primary experiment is to develop a cost-effective method to alter the trajectory of space debris in suborbital flight. The payload is designed to create an electrostatic field to attract small pieces of aluminum debris by charging a deployable rod with rabbit fur. Their secondary experiment is meant to expand their knowledge about an interesting discovery the team made during the launch of their 2018 experiment. They will be flying multiple pieces of 3D printed material made out of different types of plastic and in different shapes in order to better understand the effects of reentry conditions on 3D printed structures.

The sun begins to rise in the east over the Atlantic Ocean as nearly 100 university and community college students from across the United States wait in anticipation on Wallops Island in Virginia to see their hard work over the past year fly into space.

Finally, the moment arrives as the NASA Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket lifts into the morning sky at 5:44 a.m., Monday, August 12, 2019, from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility.

The launch is followed by cheers as the undergraduate students see the rocket rise through the sky carrying their experiments to an altitude of 96 miles. The experiments descend from space via parachute into the Atlantic Ocean. It has been recovered and early in the afternoon the students will have their experiments in hand to see how they performed.

"This was the ninth RockSat-X payload launched by NASA. The program, conducted in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium, has proven to be excellent training for students. The experience they receive through RockSat-X will prove invaluable as they pursue careers in industry, academia, NASA and other government agencies," said John Hickman, deputy chief of the NASA sounding rocket program office at Wallops.

"Thanks to the RockSat-X program I've had the hands-on opportunity to learn the basics of electrical and mechanical engineering - something I don't easily have access to in my university. RockSat was a great way to gain this experience, as was meeting new people and socializing. I've met like-minded people who became my close friends thanks to the program. It has been a surreal experience to travel to Wallops Flight Facility to see the launch and work with NASA engineers," said Amanda Ortiz, a junior mechanical engineering major at the University of Puerto Rico.

Seven projects, some including multiple experiments, flew through the RockSat-X (https://www.nasa.gov/wallops/2019/feature/undergraduate-student-experiments-soaring-high-with-rocket-launch-aug-12-from-nasa-wallops) program in conjunction with the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/). RockSat-X is the most advanced of NASA's three-phase sounding rocket program for students.  The RockOn launches are at the entry level, then progress to the intermedia level RockSat-C missions and then RockSat-X.

Participating institutions in this flight are the Arapahoe Community College, Littleton, Colorado; Community College of Aurora, Colorado; Red Rocks Community College, Lakewood, Colorado; College of the Canyons, Santa Clarita, California; the University of Puerto Rico, San Juan; University of Kentucky, Lexington; University of Maryland, College Park; University of Nebraska, Lincoln; and Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, New York.

Additional participants from West Virginia include West Virginia University, Morgantown; Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, Martinsburg; West Virginia State University, Institute; West Virginia Wesleyan College, Buckhannon; and NASA's IV & V Facility in Fairmont.

In addition to enhancing their technical skills, students also experience project management, working in a team environment and mentoring from NASA engineers and technicians.

"Ever since I was a child I knew that my purpose was within the engineering field. I participated in many programs with the hope of gaining the experience to participate with NASA. After attending the Community College of Aurora, I had the opportunity of being part of RockSat-X which was an eye-opener. Diversity, inclusivity, and a wide range of experiences were seen not only in our team but in all the teams. The feeling of "belonging" was something that was felt throughout the project which helped keep me motivated to continue in my career path," said Ruby Martinez Gomez, an aerospace engineering major at the University of Colorado – Boulder.

Josh Loredo, a senior computer science and mathematics major from the University of Kentucky, added "RockSat-X was a great opportunity for me to get experience building a sounding rocket payload. Getting to learn from and network with engineers here at Wallops is an opportunity I will forever be grateful for."

Proposals for the next RocKsat-X flight in August 2020 (https://spacegrant.colorado.edu/national-programs/rs-x-home) are now being accepted by the Colorado Space Grant Consortium. The due date for proposals is September 16, 2019.
