Description:

A participant in the U.S. space program since the 1950s, the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado conducts research in atmospheric and planetary sciences, develops space instrumentation, and creates computer information systems. Through the extensive Tour, visitors can learn about LASP's assistance in unmanned robot spacecraft missions and its involvement in the International Solar Terrestrial Physics (ISTP) program. Students can read about experiments designed to discover why polar mesospheric clouds form and to understand the physics of low energy collisions in space. Researchers can find datasets collected by many of the LASP Programs such as Mariner 9 and Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite. [RME]
