Barium cloud experiments in the upper atmosphere

  • Reimar Lüst
Chapter

Abstract

Space techniques using sounding rockets, satellites and space probes made it possible to send instruments into space not only to measure the physical parameters of the surrounding atmosphere but also to carry out experiments in order to learn about matter and fields in space.
