The DANDE mission will characterize how wind and density variability translates to drag forces on satellites in low-earth orbit (specifically an altitude of 350-500km). Here the density of the atmosphere varies greatly due to space weather and a better understanding of drag forces/composition can help predict how quickly a satellite’s orbit will change. The… (More)
