The Student Nitric Oxide Explorer (SNOE) Data Archive at LASP and NSSDC
Entry ID: SNOE

Abstract: The Student Nitric Oxide Explorer (SNOE or "snowy") is a small scientific satellite that measured the effects of energy from the sun and from the magnetosphere on the density of nitric oxide in the Earth's upper atmosphere. The spacecraft and its instruments were designed and built at LASP, the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics of the University of Colorado. SNOE was launched by a ... View entire text
