In this image, a NASA Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket was launched at 8:44 p.m. EDT, Sunday, May 16, 2021, from the Wallops Flight Facility.

The four stage rocket carried the KiNETic-scale energy and momentum transport eXperiment, or KiNet-X, designed to study a very fundamental problem in space plasmas, namely, how are energy and momentum transported between different regions of space that are magnetically connected.

These student-designed projects are a mix of technology and science experiments, including the development of a 360-degree camera for use on sounding rockets; space debris removal concepts; a solar array deployment system for CubeSats; and collection of particles in space for research on the origins of life.

在这张照片中,美国东部时间2021年5月16日周日晚8点44分,美国宇航局布莱克布兰特XII亚轨道探测火箭从瓦勒普斯飞行设施发射升空。

这枚四级箭携带了动能尺度的能量和动量传输实验(KiNet-X),旨在研究空间等离子体中的一个非常基本的问题,即能量和动量如何在磁连接的不同空间区域之间传输。

这些学生设计的项目是技术和科学实验的结合,包括开发用于探空火箭的360度相机;空间碎片清除概念;立方体卫星太阳能阵列部署系统;以及在空间收集粒子以研究生命起源
