Once again the Hotel Aurora at Esrange Space Center is filled with scientists and engineers from all over the world. All together there will be around 130 guests working on the base the coming weeks. And when these campaigns are over there will be new ones coming in, in a steady stream for months to come.
The French balloon campaign started some weeks ago and the next campaign team, REXUS 9 & 10, is on its way to the base with the first arriving guests today. The guests will be focusing on scientific measurements performed on board sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons or establishing new antennas for satellite communications.
