NASA is here

8 July 2020

In this small town, there are two rocket launching pads for scientific missiles called Svalrak. The uniqueness of the northern location makes this site very interesting to study the cusp. The outer atmosphere where the solar particles enter, because of the magnetic field of the earth. In darkness this can be seen as the aurora borealis. Ny-Ålesund is located within the ring of the aurora.
There is equipment still standing for the next launch. Originally planned in autumn 2021 but postponed for one year. The logo of NASA is clearly visible on these rocket tracking devices

Againts my hut, there is one of the smaller rockets fired from this site and retrieved by Even Molstadt. A kind of trophee.
