SAGE III on ISS: Building on a Storied Legacy

NASA Langley Research Center

Published on Feb 15, 2017
The SAGE III instrument is all set for launch to the International Space Station Saturday, Feb. 18, at 10:01 a.m. EST aboard SpaceX Falcon 9 CRS-10. From its new home on orbit, SAGE will monitor the Earth's ozone levels and aerosols. SAGE III is the latest in a series of missions that started back in the 1970s with Deke Slayton using a handheld instrument. From these humble beginnings, scientists and engineers at NASA’s Langley Research Center have built a long-term record of important Earth science data.
