Might be to hazy and cloudy to make fake clouds with radioactive isotopes


T-3 count will be the g/ng

Too many clouds to make fake clouds again

It's the angle of the dangle they tell us

Is this thread about the colorful rocket launch?

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, 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.

I am so glad it has gotten pushed back because I didn't know anything about it and will now possibly get a chance to watch.

Thank you for the updates. I've read through and looked at your links.

I hope things are a go this evening!
So exciting! I'm on top of East River Mountain in WV so hoping my elevation allows me to see.

Nasa, what a tease.

You should be. The area that can see the launch covers a couple hundred miles depending on conditions at the time of the launch.

The launch of the NASA Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket scheduled for Monday, June 19, has been postponed to June 20 because the weather is not expected to be conducive for launch. The launch has been rescheduled for Tuesday, June 20, with a launch window between 9:06 and 9:21 p.m.
