Student Nitric Oxide Explorer, Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, University of Colorado

Service Provider Description
The Student Nitric Oxide Explorer (SNOE) measured nitric oxide density in the Earth's lower thermosphere (100-200 km altitude) and analyzed how the Sun and the Earth's magnetosphere affect its abundance. SNOE carried three instruments: an ultraviolet spectrometer to measure nitric oxide altitude profiles, a two-channel auroral photometer to measure auroral emissions beneath the spacecraft, and a five-channel solar soft X-ray photometer.
