NISSE to be launched into space supported by ESA

nisse

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).

    i am looking forward to providing important insights into the characteristics of the ionosphere. don’t forget to watch me up there, seeding experimental sounding rockets! 🙂
