The results from the solar and stellar occultations are also consistent in terms of vertical pressure and temperature structure of Pluto's upper atmosphere. This means that the upper atmosphere vertical profiles of nitrogen, methane, and the observed hydrocarbons are similar over many locations on Pluto.

An experimental program underway at Caltech has produced plasmas where the shape is neither fixed by the vacuum chamber nor fixed by an external coil set, but instead is determined by self‐organization. The plasma dynamics is highly reproducible and so can be studied in considerable detail even though the morphology of the plasma is both complex and Cited by: 4.

Solar ballon flight trajectory visualization. by joaquinx | Novem We have developed instructions on how to record and visualize a balloon's trajectory that might be of interest to the Public Lab crowd: It's really good to see these flight trajectories. I think it's an important way to document a flight.

demands imposed by the space flight community, commercial and emerging technology devices have assumed a prominent role in meeting these needs. Thus, the importance of ground based testing for the effects of total ionizing dose (TID) and proton displacement damage to qualify such devices for flight is paramount.
