This photo provided by NASA shows chemical tracers that were released from five rockets launched from NASA's Wallops Island test flight facility in Atlantic, Virginia, US. The tracers form white clouds that allow scientists and the public to visualise upper level jet stream winds.

NASA launched five rockets within five minutes of each other as part of a study of the upper level jet stream. The rockets released a chemical tracer that created milky, white clouds at the edge of space. Tracking the way the clouds move helps scientists understand the movement of the winds some 65 miles up in the sky.

NASA successfully launched the ATREX five suborbital sounding rockets this morning from its Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia as part of a study of the upper level jet stream. Each of the rockets released a chemical tracer that created milky, white clouds at the edge of space. The launches and clouds were reported to be seen from as far south as Wilmington, N.C.; west to Charlestown, W. Va.; and north to Buffalo, N.Y.

NASA's ATREX rocket launch As part of a study of the upper level jetstream, NASA launched five rockets over the course of about five minutes in the wee hours of this morning. The rockets, once launched, released a chemical tracer that created pale clouds at the upper edge of Earth's atmosphere, which will help scientist study the way the winds move about 65 miles above the ground. They also made for some pretty spectacular photos!
Five sounding rockets streaked into the pre-dawn sky on March 27, 2012, leaving trails of milky white clouds in a little understood part of the atmosphere. The first rocket was launched to the cusp of space at 4:58 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, and the subsequent launches occurred at 80 second intervals. The goal of the Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment (ATREX) was to improve understanding of the process that drives fast-moving winds high in the thermosphere.

Earth captured on its entirety from an altitude of 512 miles (824 kilometers) over the North Pole. The Arctic view of the Blue Marble is not a single photo. Captured by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite, it took 15 orbits to "gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth," according to NASA.
Blue Marble 2012 - Arctic View Fifteen orbits of the recently launched Suomi NPP satellite provided the VIIRS instrument enough time (and longitude) to gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth showing the Arctic, Europe, and Asia.
Photo of the north pole generated by the Suomi NPP satellite, showing the Arctic, Europe, and Asia. Suomi NPP orbits the Earth about 14 times each day, observing nearly the entire surface. This satellite collects key data records that are critical for climate change science... Let's hope they keep the records straight.

The #First #Complete View of #Earth from the #North #Pole This is a very special version of the Blue Marble: Earth captured on its entirety from an altitude of 512 miles (824 kilometers) over the North Pole. Humanity has never had an image so detailed of our home planet from this unique perspective.
Blue Marble - Arctic view NASA has released another incredibly detailed Blue Marble photo of the Earth as seen from the Suomi NPP research satellite, this time giving us a composite view of the Artcic, Europe, and Asia. Like the previous photos, this one is even better when viewed at its impressive full resolution!
In January of this year Suomi NPP images of Earth were used to create an amazing “Blue Marble” image that spread like wildfire across the internet, becoming one of the latest “definitive” images of our planet. Subsequent images have been released by the team at Goddard Space Flight Center, each revealing a different perspective of Earth.
A newly released image from NASA shows off our home planet from an unfamiliar angle our iconic blue marble, snapped by a satellite that circles the Arctic, is arrayed in frosty white. The newly launched Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (S-NPP) satellite, which was blasted into space on Oct. 28, 2011, circled the Earth 15 times to capture the visual data used for the stunning picture. [Full Story: Photo: 'White Marble' Shows Arctic View of Earth]
In 1972, the crew of Apollo 17 took possibly the most famous picture of the Earth from space, which was dubbed "The Blue Marble." Since then, NASA has released many gorgeous images of our planet stitched together from satellite views. Usually, however, these Blue Marble images focus on the western or eastern hemisphere. Not so this image, hereby dubbed "The White Marble." Using images from the Suomi NPP satellite, NASA put together this image of Earth from the top down. The icy Arctic appears amidst swirls of clouds, with Europe, Asia and northern Africa visible toward Earth's midsection.
