NASA’s AIM spacecraft goes silent after a 15
After a 15-year run studying the Earth’s oldest clouds, NASA’s AIM spacecraft has gone silent.
The AIM spacecraft was launched in 2002 with the mission of studying the Earth’s atmosphere and clouds. For the past 15 years, it has been observing the Earth’s atmosphere and clouds from space, providing valuable data about our planet’s climate.
However, the spacecraft’s mission has now come to an end, as its funding has been cut by NASA. As a result, the AIM spacecraft will no longer be able to communicate with Earth or transmit data back to NASA.
This is a sad end for the AIM spacecraft, which has provided invaluable data about the Earth’s atmosphere and clouds. However, the spacecraft’s work is not done yet; its data will continue to be studied by scientists in order to better understand our planet’s climate.
