According to a latest report, NASA will try to launch a rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia in order to make fake clouds along the East Coast once again. The objective of the launch is to test a new system that enables scientists study auroras and the ionosphere.
If the launch goes as planned, a NASA sounding rocket will release a number of soda-size canisters of vapor tracers in the upper atmosphere that may seem as colorful clouds. The clouds may be visible from New York to North Carolina and westward to Charlottesville, Virginia.
So far, the US space giant didnt enjoy much luck with the launch. The experiment was set for May 31 but unfortunately it delayed as many as 5due to weather. But this time it is hopeful this time as weather forecasts so far indicate good weather conditions for the launch, according to a spokesman from NASA. It is sending alerts to fishermen and others in the area to stay away from the launch site.
Let us wait and see it NASA succeeds in its efforts this time. Stay tuned to hear more about this experiment.
