  • Slide 2
  • Mission Statement Jaevyn Faulk Collect Ultraviolet Radiation Compare data we collect to past data on suns activity. Study how solar activity has changed throughout an eleven-year sunspot cycle and how it has changed recently. Using data from previous flights and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) to find the change in activity of the sun.
