NASA paints the night sky: Five rockets in five minutes burst into orbit, sending glowing clouds into the atmosphere

Visualising the invisible: Chemical tracers form white clouds that allowed scientists and the public to visualize upper level jet stream winds

NASA has launched five rockets into space that will measure the jet stream by releasing chemical clouds into the atmosphere.

Blasting off from a facility in Virginia, the rockets began their ascent into space early this morning from NASA’s space centre on Wallops Island.

All five rockets were launched in a five-minute span, deploying 80 seconds apart from one another.

The launches had been delayed several times because of bad weather and wind concerns.
