Article: NASA Holds Teleconference on Intriguing Rocket Experiment Results - NASA

Today at 2 p.m. EST / 1 p.m. CST, NASA will be holding a Press Conference regarding its Sounding Rockets program, and its latest results. The rockets have been launching for 40 years now. They are able to carry scientific instruments into space for 5-20 minutes, then return to Earth. This allows enough time to conduct the experiments at hand.

The program has been very cost effective, since the rockets take a simple parabolic trajectory, avoiding the advanced systems needed to go into space for an extended period and come back. Pretty interesting stuff!
