The Solar Mesosphere Explorer is an atmospheric research satellite designed to study reactions between sunlight, ozone, and other chemicals in the atmosphere and how concentrations of ozone are transported in the atmosphere in the region from 30-km to 90-km altitude. At press time, the satellite was scheduled to be launched no earlier than October 3 at 7:27 A.M. EDT. At least one year of orbital operation is planned.
