IRLabs’ work is featured in the September 2023 issue of Cold Facts Magazine. The article describes the high-altitude cryostat we produced for the German Aerospace Center (DLR) for their OSAS-B oxygen spectrometer that was as part of Europe’s HEMERA balloon campaign. DLR’s mission was to measure atomic oxygen in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Atomic oxygen contributes to corrosion and deceleration of satellites in low Earth orbits and is an indicator of climate change in the upper atmosphere. Read the article starting on page 8.
