Default Climate Researchers Plan Glider Mission to Edge of Space

Climate Researchers Plan Glider Mission to Edge of Space

Not a lot is known about the weather at 90,000 feet above the earth’s
surface, so a team of scientists and aviators are going to fly there
using an engineless aircraft to learn more about what the weather at
such extreme altitudes has to say about climate change.

It’s called the Perlan Project, and the glider the team will use —
the Perlan Mission II glider — will attempt its first flight on
Wednesday in Oregon, the first of many test flights before the
aircraft rides a column of air rising off the Andes Mountains to
90,000 feet over South America sometime in 2016.


sci.physics is an unmoderated newsgroup dedicated
to the discussion of physics, news from the physics
community, and physics-related social issues.
