A NASA sounding rocket with the technology of capturing 1,500 images of the sun in five minutes is all set to launch by the NASA scientists on 5 May 2017. The rocket will go 200 miles up in the atmosphere. This launch is a part of the NASA-funded RAISE mission.
As Phys.org cited, the NASA sounding rocket launch, a part of the RAISE mission, will be scrutinizing split second changes which are occurring beside the active regions of the sun. This supervision will include the areas of intense and any type of complex magnetic activity which in result gives rise to the solar flares, ejecting energy and solar materials into the vast space.
Many other missions are still studying the sun which includes NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) but these missions fail in observing the rapid changes which are occurring in certain areas near the sun. The RAISE mission, an abbreviation for Rapid Acquisition Spectrograph Experiment, now can easily identify and visualize those changes occurring there, with the help of NASA sounding rocket.
EurekAlert reported that images which will be captured from the NASA sounding rocket will be utilized to make an information item called a spectrogram, which isolates light from the sun into all its distinctive wavelength parts. By taking a gander at the force of light at every wavelength, researchers can survey how sun oriented material and vitality moves around the sun, and how that development advances into gigantic sunlight based emissions.
This launch of this NASA sounding rocket is not the first flight for the NASA's RAISE mission. It's the third flight and has the updated technology when compared to the past two flights. The detectors have been refurbished and the flight software has also been updated. The payload contains a new diffraction grating which is capable of reflecting light and separating the light into its different wavelengths. The launching time for the sounding rocket has been set to 2:25 PM EDT at the White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces in New Mexico.
