AirUCI faculty Michael Prather was interviewed on the local NBC station on July 7, 2016 about his participation in a seminal NASA study to measure greenhouse gases worldwide using their flying laboratory.  The Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) mission route includes a flight over the North Pole, then New Zealand, the tip of South America and on to the Arctic. Science instruments aboard the NASA DC-8, based at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Palmdale, will collect information about greenhouse gases and other particles in the atmosphere.
