Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at their Space Storm Hunter, also known as the Atmosphere-Space Interactions Mission, and its journey to space.
The instrument was launched on April 2nd, 2018 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and then was installed on the International Space Station.
According to ESA, this marks “the first time that such a set of sensitive cameras, light sensors and X- and gamma-ray detectors will study the anatomy of luminous phenomena in Earth’s upper atmosphere and bursts of high-energy radiation.”
