Submission + - NASA launches rocket to collect data on aurora (newsminer.com)

leighklotz writes: "NASA launched MICA, a rocket with an ion-field probe and a magnetic-field probe, from Fairbanks Alaska, straight up into a roaring aurora display, and then like Gravity's Rainbow, back down again. No word on whether they encountered Mrs. Coulter. CNN Video shows more surprisingly cogent popular press coverage. One of my sempai from college worked on this project, and shared pretty the pretty pix, some of which are in the University of New Hampshire news release, and in Astronomy Magazine. They should be analyzing the data for a while."
