NASA Set To Launch Five Rockets In Five Minutes

Assuming the weather is clear, a NASA experiment that will see five rockets launched in as many minutes will take place in Wednesday’s wee hours from a coastal site in Virginia.

The countdown for the mission will begin at 7:00pm ET Tuesday, the space agency said, and the suborbital sounding rockets are set to take off from Wallops Island, Va., between midnight and 5:00am Wednesday.

The rockets are destined for the jet stream that lies 65 miles (104km) above Earth and packs winds that can zip well over 300mph (480kph).

After blasting off in near-synchronization, the rockets will release a chemical into that atmospheric highway, leaving milky, white cloud trails that will allow researchers and the public to “see” those winds from hundreds of miles away.-[source]
