The Earth's atmosphere has four primary layers: the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere. These layers protect our planet by absorbing harmful radiation. Thermosphere 53– Miles - In the thermosphere, molecules of oxygen and nitrogen are bombarded by radiation and energetic particles from the Sun, Author: Holly Zell. The objectives, status, and accomplishments of the research tasks supported under the NASA Upper Atmosphere Research Program (UARP) are presented. The topics covered include the following: balloon-borne in situ measurements; balloon-borne remote measurements; ground-based measurements; aircraft-borne measurements; rocket-borne measurements; instrument development; reaction kinetics . After a year deployment on a mission to collect data on Earth's atmosphere and its interactions with the Sun, NASA's Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) ceased operations on Decem Launched from the Space Shuttle Discovery on Septem . SAGE III on ISS - SAGE III on the International Space Station (ISS). The SAGE III instrument is used to study ozone, a gas found in the upper atmosphere that acts as Earth’s sunscreen. More than 25 years ago, scientists realized there was a problem with Earth’s thin, protective coat of ozone it was thinning.

HARP, for High Altitude Research Project, was a study of the upper atmosphere by instruments shot from a cannon. The project was conducted in the s by scientists of the McGill University in Montreal, who named their vehicle the "Martlet", an old name for the martin bird; the shield of the McGill University in Montreal displays three red martlets. NASA’s decommissioned Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite fell back to Earth at 12 a.m. EDT ( GMT), as Friday, Sept. 23, turned to Saturday, Sept. 24 on the United States east coast. NASA Earth Science Division Response to COVID The Earth Science Division continues to collect Earth-observing satellite data on a global scale and has planned for continuity of observations, while prioritizing the health, welfare and safety of our employees .
NASA, satellite, atmosphere UARS (Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite) was launched in as the first satellite dedicated to understanding the dynamics of the ozone layer.
