Scientists understand this Earth's atmospheric leakage, atmospheric losses occur in high-energy storms. But losses occur at the dawn of the day, too Scientists want to know the location and strength The source of gas that escapes the Earth's environment. Both output events are not the same.
For a detailed view, VISIONS-2 project researchers (See Ion exit Via NASA's Neutral Atom Sensing-2) with loaded cameras and tools, in its mission in a couple of sound rockets. These small rockets can make direct flights to space and then return to the ground map oxygen flow During a short aurore potential.
The researchers opened Ny-Alesund, Svalbard (Norway) rockets and were waiting at dawn. They were launched on December 7 this year.
Allison Stancil-Ervin's picture taken at NASA's Wallops Flight Installation is a long exposure when rockets show up. Although it's a fun day on the planet, Ny-Alesund's natural light does not exist at this time of year. It was time to start maritime cabins, The level of light we call the horizon, sailing the sea.
The photo shows the ignition and recording phases of two rockets. Kea comes with the first release, illuminated by the second fingerprint. The two views of the rock confirm that scientists provided a variety of tools that require a rotating platform and require a stable platform. In addition, researchers allow you to combine coefficients, which is very useful Continue to change the energy of solar energy over time.

"We had a very simple experience to build complex and burdensome burdens, with Wallops testing and testing to move them closer to the field," he said. Doug RowlandNASA's main mission and physical space for the Goddard Space Flight Center mission.
An initial look at the data of VISIONS-2 reveals how the data that appears in the tools is expected. "I think we saw that it was" an atmospheric source ", said Rowland. Data is still being studied and scaled ", but we can test them from many perspectives."
The loss of the Earth's atmosphere can better understand the understanding of other planets; this is, how some were desolate and what were the habitable. Until then, scientists assure Earth You will not have any oxygen soon. In today's missed rates, the Earth's atmosphere should be for millions of years.
VISIONS-2 is part of the multinational Grand Challenge initiative 11 rockets presentations in two years.
