Walls of text

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Hey there.

I’ve decided to compile some of my writing about “making things” on a website, 1997-style. Some is new, some is old, I hope they are all interesting. 

And I’m not joking about the 1997 style. It’s made of completely static html pages, arranged in books and chapters and is most definitely not a blog.

This however does not mean you are not expected to send vitriol on my mail address though!

I would appreciate it!


NISSE to be launched into space supported by ESA

Monday, November 17th, 2008


The Nordic Ionospheric Sounding rocket Seeding Experiment, NISSE, was accepted to ESA’s sounding rocket programme. The Finnish Meteorological Institute is also involved in the project.

The NISSE experiment will enable observation and measurement of the effects of a man-made, environmental healthy chemical release in a challenging upper atmosphere altitude region. The low ionization degree of the region will push the watercloud tracking radars to their limits. In the best case NISSE will provide important insights into the characteristics of the ionosphere. The NISSE-team consists of two doctoral degree students from Finland (Oulu, Helsinki) and two students from Norway (Bergen).
