Vaisala Data Loggers Protect Critical NASA Data

In August 2001, NASA launched the Materials on the International Space Station Experiment (MISSE), a cooperative effort with the Air Force Research Laboratory, Boeing, the Langley Research Center and several other aerospace industry leaders. MISSE is a series of experiments designed to test the effect of the space environment on different materials over extended periods of time, in hopes of developing new, more affordable materials for launch systems and spacecraft.
