Transcript of SCISAT

By:Kirat Padda What Is SCISAT? What was the SCISAT made for? Individual canadian What instruments were used? Was It Worth It? SCISAT is a canadian satellite to make observations of the earths atmosphere. This satellite was the fist canadian satellite since 1997. The SCISAT mission to space was to get measurements of the earths atmosphere and measurements of the Aerosol Extinction in the Stratosphere and Troposphere. SCISAT has a orbit of 74 degrees and it revolves around the earth 15 times a day. This gives the satellite an opportunity to observe sunlight which has passed through the earths atmosphere during 15 brief "sunrises" and "sunsets." This gives scientist 30 sets of data per-day. In conclusion, SCISAT was Canada's first satellite since 1997. Its objective was to get measurement and spectra images of earths atmosphere and everything around earth. The SCISAT was made to help canadian and international scientists, improve their understanding of the earths ozone layer. The SCISAT was also made to find out the changes occurring in Canada and in the arctic. Lastly, the SCISAT was made to find the changes/measurements in earths atmosphere. The SCISAT includes many instruments like Optical Fourier, Transform Infrared Spectrometer, The ACE-FTS Instrument, an Ultra Violet Spectrophoto Meter and a Maestro.

The main instrument on the SCISAT is the optic spectrometer. This records the spectrum of the sun as the light raise passes through the earths atmosphere. SCISAT was lunched on August, 12 2003. It cost NASA 65 Million (65,000,000) dollars just to create and launch it to space.
In 2003 the population was 31,660,500
Each canadian had to pay $2.05
How I got my answer:
I took the cost and divided it by the number of canadian citizens in 2003.
65,000,000 ~ 31,660,500
= 2.05303138
Once you round the number the total comes to $2.05 (per canadian)
Each canadian had to pay $2.05. This cost would cover the launching of SCISAT and the creation/creating of SCISAT. Scisat In my opinion I think SCISAT was worth the trip to space. I believe this because of the cost of sending SCISAT up to space wasn't that expensive. Also the information that we got from SCISAT was very helpful and worthy towards our living on planet earth.

First off, an average canadian spends more then $5.00 per day, Giving $2.05 towards a canadian satellite isn't that much. This will help us get information about our atmosphere and many other things located around.

Secondly, sending the SCISAT up to space was tremendous idea because, it helped us understand the meaning towards atmosphere. It was also worth it because, we got information that we would never thought we could get. Such as, the way the sun raise hits planet earth and how the sun effects out atmosphere. Therefore, I agree with sending SCISAT up to space because, it gave us information about what was happening in our atmosphere and if anything dangerous/life concerning was about to happen. The SCISAT was great help while it lasted in our universe/space.

In conclusion, I believe SCISAT was worth the trip and cost to space. I believe in this because, we got useful information about our atmosphere. The SCISAT mission was a success, we got the opportunity to look at our planet earth and its atmosphere we also got information that we never thought we could get. Lastly, the cost that each canadian had to pay was not that expensive. The cost that each canadian had to pay was $2.05. If we didn't pay $2.05 then SCISAT would never have gone to space and we wouldn't know how out atmosphere was created. In my opinion, I think the SCISAT mission to space was worth it. We got 30 sets of data each day and that helped us understand the motion behind our earth and atmosphere. How Does The SCISAT Look Like
