    Eclipse from the Edge of Space
    DREAMS-25:The scientific goals for the Eclipse launches is to characterize the effect on the stratosphere due to sudden change of solar radiation. A suite of sensors will measure standard state variables like pressure and temperature as well as a Geiger counter (alpha, beta, gamma radiation), near infrared, near UV, visible light, particle detector (dust), and CO2
    DREAMS-25:
    Night launch, SpringMay/June 2017
    Launch at 3am with full sensor suite to measure relaxed stratosphere as a baseline for eclipse data which will show response to sudden change.
