Airborne Arctic Stratospheric (Ozone) Expedition Stavanger Norway Jan-Feb 1989: The clouds seen from the NASA DC-8 aircraft at nearly 39,000 feet in the polar regions north of Stravanger, Norway, are representative of what are called 'Type II' polar stratospheric clouds. This type consists mostly of water molecules frozen as ice. These particular clouds are also exhibiting what is called orographic effects - the clouds have taken on a wave-like form because of motion associated with underlying topographic features of the earth's surface; in this case, some mountains in Iceland.

Arctic Ozone Expedition Stavanger Norway  These clouds in the polar regions north of Stravanger, Norway are representative of what are called 'Type 1' and Type 2' polar stratospheric clouds. Type 1 are seen in the lower portion and consist of cloud particles comprised of nitrogen trihydrates. Seen edge-on as in this view, they appear as a thin dark orange or brown layer. Multiple layering can be seen. The Type 2 clouds are above and consist mostly of water molecules frozen as ice. The size of the particles in Type 2 clouds, the water-ice clouds, are much larger than the particle size of the Type 1 clouds - which are on the order of the wavelength of light.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. --  After being dropped from the L-1011 aircraft at 3:14 p.m. EST over the Atlantic Ocean, the Pegasus XL rocket fires, propelling NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) toward its orbit. Separation of the spacecraft from the rocket occurred 10 minutes and 46 seconds after launch at about 3:24 p.m.  Initial contact with the satellite was made seven seconds after separation via a NASA communications satellite network. Over the next few days, the mission team will insure that the spacecraft is functioning properly. The SORCE science instruments will then be turned on and their health verified.  Approximately 21 days after launch, if all is going well, the instruments will start initial science data collection and calibration will begin. The spacecraft will study the Sun's influence on our Earth and will measure from space how the Sun affects the Earth's ozone layer, atmospheric circulation, clouds, and oceans.  This mission is a joint partnership between NASA and the University of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics in Boulder, Colorado.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - After takeoff off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., the Pegasus XL rocket, with NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE), can be seen attached underneath and between the wheels of the L-1011 aircraft. The L-1011 will release the rocket over the Atlantic Ocean at 39,000 feet. After separation from the rocket, initial contact with the satellite will be made and the mission team will insure that the spacecraft is functioning properly. The SORCE science instruments will then be turned on and their health verified.  Approximately 21 days after launch, if all is going well, the instruments will start initial science data collection and calibration will begin. The spacecraft will study the Sun's influence on our Earth and will measure from space how the Sun affects the Earth's ozone layer, atmospheric circulation, clouds, and oceans.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- The Pegasus XL rocket is dropped from the L-1011 aircraft at 3:14 p.m. EST, propelling NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) toward its orbit. Separation of the spacecraft from the rocket occurred 10 minutes and 46 seconds after launch at about 3:24 p.m.  Initial contact with the satellite was made seven seconds after separation via a NASA communications satellite network. Over the next few days, the mission team will insure that the spacecraft is functioning properly. The SORCE science instruments will then be turned on and their health verified.  Approximately 21 days after launch, if all is going well, the instruments will start initial science data collection and calibration will begin.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, CALIF.- The cover is being lifted off SciSat-1 spacecraft at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif.   Sci-Sat, which will undergo instrument checkout and spacecraft functional testing, weighs approximately 330 pounds and after launch will be placed in a 400-mile-high polar orbit to investigate processes that control the distribution of ozone in the upper atmosphere. The data from the satellite will provide Canadian and international scientists with improved measurements relating to global ozone processes and help policymakers assess existing environmental policy and develop protective measures for improving the health of our atmosphere, preventing further ozone depletion. The mission is designed to last two years.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, CALIF. -  The SciSat-1 payload and Pegasus launch vehicle are lifted and mated to the L-1011 carrier aircraft.  The SciSat-1 weighs approximately 330 pounds and after launch will be placed in a 400-mile-high polar orbit to investigate processes that control the distribution of ozone in the upper atmosphere. The data from the satellite will provide Canadian and international scientists with improved measurements relating to global ozone processes and help policymakers assess existing environmental policy and develop protective measures for improving the health of our atmosphere, preventing further ozone depletion. The mission is designed to last two years.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- EOS Aura: The Aura mission will study air quality, climate and stratospheric ozone depletion.  Aura is the third of NASA’s major Earth Observing System (EOS) orbital platforms and has four instruments. The Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) and the High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (HIRDLS) will make complementary measurements of stratospheric ozone and the chemicals that destroy it.  HIRDELS and MLS will also measure upper tropospheric water vapor and ozone - key gases that regulate climate. The Aura payload also includes the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES), which will make the first global measurements of lower atmospheric ozone, and the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI), which will measure the total amount of atmospheric ozone as well as lower atmospheric dust, smoke and other aerosols. Aura is scheduled to launch in 2004.  The flags on the decals represent the countries participating in the mission: United States, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Finland.  The EOS Aura mission is being managed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. KSC-04pd1237
