NASA Shot A Rocket Into The Northern Lights And It Was Astonishing
Keep doing what you're doing, NASA. It's incredible.
In the early morning hours of March 3rd, NASA shot a rocket into the sky from a research center in Poker Flat, Alaska.
The rocket was shot straight into the "Northern Lights," over northern Alaska.
The rocket traveled for 10 minutes through the heart of the Aurora.
The goal was for NASA to collect data to determine how certain structures form in the Aurora.
“The conditions were optimal,” Marilia Samara, principal investigator for the mission, told NASA.
It's amazing what NASA can do from a small shed in northern Alaska.
