NASA Launches 3 Sounding Rockets for APEP Mission from Wallops Flight Facility during Solar EclipseNASA successfully launches 3 sounding rockets from Wallops Flight Facility during solar eclipse On 8th April 2024, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched 3 Black Brant IX sounding rockets for the Atmospheric Perturbations around Eclipse Path (APEP) mission from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the United States of America (USA).

  • This aims to study the disturbances in the ionosphere created during a total solar eclipse.

i.The ionosphere is a region of Earth’s upper atmosphere between 80 and about 600 km above sea level.
ii.Previously, the sounding rockets were launched and successfully recovered from the White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico (USA), during the annular solar eclipse in October 2023.
Mission Objective:
i.The mission aims to study how Earth’s upper atmosphere reacts to the temporary dimming of sunlight during the eclipse.
ii.The mission is led by Aroh Barjatya, a professor of engineering physics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida, USA.
Launch Timeline:
i.Rockets were launched at 3 different times: 45 minutes before, during, and 45 minutes after the peak local eclipse.
ii.These crucial intervals are essential to gather data for understanding how the sudden disappearance of the Sun influences the ionosphere.

  • Solar eclipse-induced disturbances may affect communication systems.

Rocket Mission Overview:
i.The APEP rockets reached a maximum altitude of 420 km (260 miles).
ii.Each rockets measure charged and neutral particle density, surrounding electric, and magnetic fields.
iii.Each rocket deploys 4 secondary instruments (the size of a 2-liter soda bottle) for extensive data collection, equivalent to data from 15 rockets.
iv.3 secondary instruments on each rocket were built by Embry-Riddle, and the 4th one was built at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, USA.
Impact of Eclipse on Atmosphere
i.Eclipse creates rapid localised sunset.
ii.Triggers atmospheric waves and disturbances.
iii.Affects various radio communication frequencies.
Significance of Data Collection:
Gathering the data on these disturbances helps scientists validate and enhance predictive models, crucial for predicting disturbances in high-frequency communication.
Note: With the next total solar eclipse over the contiguous USA not until 2044, the 2024 eclipse presents a rare research opportunity.
