Astronomy from the Edge of Space



"A team of rocket scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Space Astronomy Laboratory talk about innovative developments such as the Star Tracker 5000, which offers important applications for the national space program. The device accurately orients spacecraft by tracking star fields with a high level of precision. The researchers also explain how they gather information with an ultraviolet telescope launched by rocket, providing insight into the levels of invisible light in the universe."

Sounding rocketry supports astronomy. Yet again, if you have a problem, the solution is likely to be rocketry related.
