But NASA's Lidar In-space Technology Experiment (LITE) marks the first time a lidar has flown in space, says Patrick McCormick of NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va.
On the same September shuttle flight, scientists will test a laser system designed to investigate atmospheric chemistry, Known as LITE, for LIDAR In-Space Technology Experiment, this pilot study will examine the composition of aerosols in the stratosphere and troposphere, gauge the altitudes of clouds, and measure the temperature and density of the upper atmosphere in the range of 10 to 40 kilometers.
