ua Ultraviolet spectrometer: It will study the upper atmosphere and traces of oxygen and hydrogen further out into space.
The scientific devices the probe will be using are the Emirates eXploration Imager (EXI), Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS), and the Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer (EMIRS).
An ultraviolet spectrometer aboard Hope will track traces of oxygen, hydrogen, and other gases as they escape into outer space.
The scientific devices the probe will be using include The Emirates eXploration imager (EXI), Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer (EMUS), and the Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer (EMIRS), are ready and EMUS had been successfully mounted on the probe.
It also will have an ultraviolet spectrometer which will study the upper atmosphere and traces of oxygen and hydrogen further out into space.
The Remote Sensing Package, an imaging ultraviolet spectrometer, will determine the global characteristics of the upper atmosphere and its partially ionized component (the ionosphere), which are where the solar wind and the planet's atmosphere meet.
instruments aboard the spacecraft are the Microwave Instrument for Rosetta Orbiter (MIRO), an ultraviolet spectrometer called Alice, and the Ion and Electron Sensor (IES).
Researchers are still analyzing data taken by the craft's visible-light and ultraviolet spectrometer to identify the plume's composition.
Bio-Botanica also incorporates highly sophisticated analytical equipment, such as high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography, infrared spectrometer (IR), ultraviolet spectrometer (UV) and total organic carbon analyzer (TOC), which allows analysts to check water for chemical or microbiological contamination, down to parts per billion.
His third mission involved dispatching and retrieving an ultraviolet spectrometer satellite and an aborted extravehicular activity (EVA), or space walk, when the shuttle's pressure door jammed, the latter described as the biggest disappointment of his astronaut career.
If Rosetta is successful in meeting its target, Alice will be the first ultraviolet spectrometer ever employed in this area of space research.
