Carthage College RockSat-X Team: The X-Statics
Description: Carthage College in Kenosha WI has participated in the RockSat program since 2010 and continues the tradition by joining in the RockSat-X program this past year. Our experiment looks at very low frequency (VLF) electromagnetic impulses from lightning discharges in the atmosphere by utilizing electric plate and magnetic loop antennas. From the data we collect from the payload, we hope to see how these VLF waves escape through the Ionosphere and interpret how this may happen.
