RM SAMPE Chapter
invites you to our March Meeting, a visit to
Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP)
Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) has a long history of involvement in space missions, beginning in the 1960s and remaining strong today. On any individual mission, LASP may have one or more roles: science direction and research; engineering of an individual instrument or component; engineering of an entire instrument suite; mission operations of individual instruments; or mission operations for the spacecraft as a whole.
CU undergraduate and graduate students are typically involved as part of any mission work that LASP undertakes. Sometimes, student teams lead instrument development under the supervision of professionals; examples include the Student Nitric Oxide Explorer, the Solar Mesosphere Explorer, and the Student Dust Counter.
Note: The Facility Tour will include stops in the lobby (which contains many interesting spacecraft/instruments, models, and historical objects), the engineering labs (including several Class 10,000 clean rooms), the machine shop for building instruments, and the Mission Operations Center from which students and professionals operate satellites.
