Ssend at least one 2U CubeSat to the ionosphere to measure the extreme ultraviolet light from 135.6-nm and the thermal electrons in the auroral zone to find out how the upwelling of the polar thermosphere is affected by the solar wind. We plan to study this upwelling in the cusp region of the magnetosphere. In order to do this study, the orbit has to be a polar orbit.
