Play video - Launchpad: SAGE III Goes to the International Space Station

NASA's third generation science instrument, SAGE III, sheds light on how aerosols, water vapor and other gases interact with and affect our atmosphere. See how a unique hexapod helps the instrument stay oriented on the International Space Station and how NASA plans to use moonrise and moonset to double measurement capabilities, helping us truly understand the chemical balance in our atmosphere.
