rocket launch

25 November 2021

A successful campaign at Svalrak, the rocket launch facility in Ny-Ă…lesund. With these rockets, the upper atmosphere is studied inside the cusp of aurora borealis. The extra energy from the solar winds excites molecules, which might affect their release from earth atmosphere. This study can only be performed from a site within the ring of aurora borealis where there is also enough ocean where the rocket can fall back to earth. The pollution of these rocket has been much debated in NySMAC and is under study. More on this topic can be read here
