University of Colorado Plans Experiments in Space
Two University of Colorado based experiments will be launched
in May aboard NASA rockets from White Sands Missile Range in New
The first experiment, called EVE for Extreme Ultraviolet
Variability Experiment, is scheduled for a May 3 launch and will
support measurements by the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)
satellite. EVE is headed by Dr. Thomas Woods of the University of
Colorado Boulder and will provide flight calibration for the EVE
instrument on the SDO satellite that was launched Feb. 11, 2010.
The data gathered will allow engineers and scientists to calibrate
the instruments aboard the SDO.
Another experiment called DICE, for Diffuse Interstellar Cloud
Experiment, is scheduled to launch May 16 and will sample
interstellar gas. DICE, headed by Dr. James Green of the University
of Colorado at Boulder, will study conditions of an interstellar
gas bubble in nearby space to determine whether gas is flowing into
or away from the gas bubble.
Both experiments will be launched on NASA Black Brant IX two
stage, solid fueled, suborbital sounding rockets. EVE will reach an
apogee of approximately 175 miles altitude and DICE will fly to
approximately 202 miles altitude.
