Make a series of global measurements in the lower ionosphere to asses drag and compare against thermal models.
Make a series of global measurements in the lower ionosphere, take space weather measurements, assess drag, and take temperature measurements to compare against thermal models. Target the least explored layer of the atmosphere, the lower ionosphere. probe plasma density, determine drag characteristics of the vehicle, and measure temperature on the skin and in the interior of the spacecraft.
