Observatory on the ATLAS 1 and Spacelab 1 missions are used to study the ultraviolet emissions of nitric oxide in the thermosphere.

By synthetically fitting the measured NO gamma bands, intensities are derived as a function of altitude and latitude. We find that the NO concentrations inferred from the ATLAS 1 measurements are higher than. Get this from a library.

ATLAS-1, the first of the ATLAS series of Shuttle flights, was an important part of the long-term, coordinated research that made up NASA's Mission to Planet Earth. The ATLAS-1 solar science instruments and several of the atmospheric science instruments (MAS, ATMOS and SSBUV) flew on future ATLAS missions.

For example, an Atlas V has a 5-meter fairing, 5 SRBs, and 1 Centaur engine, whereas an Atlas V has a 4-meter fairing, 3 SRBs, and 1 Centaur engine. The crewed Atlas V N22 with no fairing, two SRBs, and 2 Centaur engines is currently intended for launch in The flight will carry the Starliner vehicle for its first orbital test flightLaunch sites: Cape Canaveral SLC, Vandenberg.

The ATMOS Fourier transform spectrometer was flown for a fourth time on the Space Shuttle as part of the ATLAS‐3 instrument payload in November More than sunrise and sunset occultation events provided measurements of more than 30 atmospheric trace gases at latitudes 3–49°N and 65–72°S, including observations both inside and outside the Antarctic polar vortex.

It is obvious by a casual look at the spacecraft (fig. ) that requirements (1), (3), and (4) were followed as evidenced by the escape tower, the retrorocket system that can be seen on the blunt end of the spacecraft, and the simple blunt-body shape without wings.

Items (2) and (5) have been made apparent by the manner in which the astronaut has. Atlas II was a member of the Atlas family of launch vehicles, which evolved from the successful Atlas missile program of the s. It was designed to launch payloads into low earth orbit, geosynchronous transfer orbit or geosynchronous -three launches of the Atlas II, IIA and IIAS models were carried out between and ; all sixty-three launches were successes, making the Function: Medium expendable Launch vehicle.
