CU Boulder scientists will conduct longest mission to the ionosphere
The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at CU Boulder is the only academic institution to send a spacecraft to every planet in the solar system, but this next mission will be a little closer to home.
They have been selected by NASA to design and build an instrument to investigate the ionosphere, the outer most layer of Earth's atmosphere which gradually blends into space.
“With this mission, we will actually be able to better describe the turbulent nature of this region,” said heliophysics researcher Laila Andersson. "This is really the part of space that can affect society."
