International Space Station to study meteors hitting atmosphere

CAPE CANAVERAL — Peering down at the Earth’s atmosphere from a research window aboard the International Space Station, a new science instrument launching Tuesday will compose unprecedented characterizations of the chemical makeup of shooting stars.

Called METEOR, the Meteor Composition Determination experiment will take high-resolution video and images of Earth and uses a software program to filter out bright spots, the telltale sign of a meteor plunging into the atmosphere below.

Space Station Live: The Stuff of Meteors


Published on Mar 21, 2016

NASA Commentator Dan Huot talks with Michael Fortenberry of the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas, the developer of the Meteor experiment flying to the International Space Station on the next Cygnus cargo ship. Once set up in the station’s Windows Observational Research Facility (WORF) in the Destiny module, the Meteor camera equipped with a series of filters will observe meteor showers and take spectral measurements that can reveal the chemical makeup of the meteors and improve our understanding of how the planets developed.
