USA: NASA Project Called Serpent Deity Launching 3 Rockets Into The Moon’s Shadow On Monday, April 8 During A Partial Solar Eclipse Across North America.

GlobalAwareness101 published NASA Project Called Serpent Deity Launching 3 Rockets Into Eclipse. Wow. ๐Ÿ˜ณ How much more in our face do they need to be for people to see what's going on? Incredible. :/ I added alphaandomega985 name to the video and the captions.

NASA has announced it will fire three scientific sounding rockets into the moon’s shadow on Monday, April 8 during a partial solar eclipse across North America.

In what will be a total solar eclipse for a 115 miles-wide path through parts of Mexico, 15 U.S. states and Canada and a partial solar eclipse for the entire Americas, the event will see a sudden drop in sunlight.

Serpent Deity

The space agency’s project, Atmospheric Perturbations Around The Eclipse Path, will investigate how that drop in sunlight and temperature affects Earth’s upper atmosphere. APEP is named after the serpent deity from ancient Egyptian mythology, nemesis of the sun deity Ra, according to NASA.

NASA’s suborbital rockets won’t launch into totality. Instead they’ll go from Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia, from where 81% of the sun will be blocked by the moon. That moment will happen at 15:33 EST, though the eclipse will take part between 14:06 and 16:33.

Moon Shadow

However, this won’t be the first simultaneous measurements taken from different locations in a very special layer of Earth’s atmosphere during a solar eclipse.

On Saturday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m, 10:35 a.m and 11:10 a.m. MT, the same three rockets were launched into the moon’s shadow during another partial solar eclipse. They launched from White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, where a 90% partial solar eclipse took place, reached altitudes of 216 miles, 219 miles and 218 miles.

All three scientific payloads were successfully recovered to be reflown from Wallops Flight Facility for the second part of the APEP experiment. Just as from New Mexico, the rockets will launch before, during and after the peak of the eclipse.

“Each rocket will eject four secondary instruments the size of a two-liter soda bottle that also measure the same data points, so it's similar to results from fifteen rockets, while only launching three,” said Aroh Barjatya, a professor of engineering physics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida, where he directs the Space and Atmospheric Instrumentation Lab.

Rapid Ripples

The point of APEP is to look for perturbations—changes in the Earth’s atmosphere—during the eclipse, with four small scientific instruments measuring changes in electric and magnetic fields, density and temperature. The rockets will enter the ionosphere, where the air becomes electric. It’s here that ions and electrons wax and wane in temperature and density at sunrise and sunset. It’s expected that the rapid eclipse of the sun will see waves ripple through the ionosphere.

“It’s an electrified region that reflects and refracts radio signals, and also impacts satellite communications as the signals pass through,” said Barjatya. “Understanding the ionosphere and developing models to help us predict disturbances is crucial to making sure our increasingly communication-dependent world operates smoothly.”

There's a total solar eclipse coming up in North America, and NASA plans to shoot some rockets at it to see how the ionosphere changes as the Sun is obscured by the Moon.

NASA plans to launch a trio of sounding rockets before, during, and after the eclipse on April 8 as part of its Atmospheric Perturbations around Eclipse Path (APEP) program in the hopes of being able to better predict and prevent disruptions to terrestrial communications tech.

"Understanding the ionosphere and developing models to help us predict disturbances is crucial to making sure our increasingly communication-dependent world operates smoothly," said Aroh Barjatya, engineering physics professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and project leader.

The ionosphere is part of the thermospheric layer of Earth's atmosphere and forms the boundary between the lower atmosphere and the vacuum of space. Stretching from around 50 to 400 miles above Earth's surface, the ionosphere is pelted by solar radiation during the day, separating electrons from atoms in the layer and creating a blanket of positively charged ions crucial to certain forms of communication.

One of the reasons AM radio broadcasts can be heard so far from their sources is because the signals bounce off the ionosphere. FM waves, being shorter than AM ones, tend to escape the ionosphere.

By cutting the Sun's energy off, an eclipse can disrupt communications – even after a short duration of daytime darkness – affecting radio waves, GPS signals, and satellite communications. Relying on satellites to detect ionosphere changes from an eclipse isn't practical because satellites may not be in the right place at the right time, so rockets are the best bet, says NASA.

The plan is to launch the trio of rockets 45 minutes before the eclipse, in the midst of it, and 45 minutes after to get a baseline degree of disruption, and to see how long it takes for atmospheric ionization to return to normal. Each rocket is expected to reach a maximum altitude of 260 miles, placing it smack-dab in the middle of the ionosphere.

Upon reaching their trajectory, each rocket will launch four two-liter bottle sized instruments, effectively delivering readings "from 15 rockets, while only launching three," Barjatya said. All 15 sensor-packed devices will measure charged and neutral particle density as well as surrounding electric and magnetic fields.

This will be the second time in as many years that APEP has had an opportunity to study ionosphere disruptions due to an eclipse, but the 2023 eclipse was annular, not total. The upcoming eclipse on April 8 is total, meaning measurements could be different.

"We are super excited to relaunch them during the total eclipse, to see if the perturbations start at the same altitude and if their magnitude and scale remain the same," Barjatya said.

Here's hoping everything goes to plan – the next total solar eclipse to grace the skies in the United States won't happen until 2044.

As the Moon wedges itself between Earth and Sun, temporarily dimming the day’s light over parts of our planet, three rockets will take to the skies to observe how those brief moments of darkness affect Earth’s upper atmosphere.

On April 8, NASA will launch three sounding rockets from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia to study the disturbances in the ionosphere during the solar eclipse. The rockets will launch at three different times; 45 minutes before, during, and 45 minutes after the peak time of the eclipse, according to NASA.

The Sun’s sudden disappearance affects part of the planet’s atmosphere, creating disturbances that could possibly interfere with communication systems on Earth.

The ionosphere is part of Earth’s upper atmosphere, and forms the boundary between Earth’s lower atmosphere and the vacuum of space. It contains a large number of electrically charged atoms and molecules, and reflects and refracts radio waves that are used for our communication and navigation systems. During nighttime, the ionosphere thins out because it no longer receives solar radiation, which ionize the atoms and molecules. As a result, the previously ionized particles relax and recombine into neutral particles.

“Understanding the ionosphere and developing models to help us predict disturbances is crucial to making sure our increasingly communication-dependent world operates smoothly,” Aroh Barjatya, a professor of engineering physics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida, and lead scientist of the mission, said in a statement.
