New mission to study critical layer of Earth’s atmosphere
Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at a new mission focused on studying a crucial layer of Earth’s atmosphere: the ionosphere.
The ionosphere is the uppermost layer of Earth’s atmosphere that overlaps with the beginning of outer space and protects life on Earth from harmful radiation.
Now, NASA has launched a new mission called GOLD (the Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk instrument) to examine this important layer.
