On March 25 and 26, 1999 we successfully flew a new instrument to simultaneously measure ClO and CO2 in the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere. These measurements are designed to assess the impact of rocket exhaust on lower stratospheric ozone. Below are some photos that were taken at Ellington Field, Houston during the test flights.
