NASA’s Firefly mission, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, will study the possible relationship between Earth lightning and gamma ray emmissions. By using a cubesat, the Firefly mission provides a low-cost approach to high-quality, highly targeted science. It was among the 29 satellites launched Nov. 19 on the Minotaur 1 rocket from Wallops Island, Va. Credit: NASA Goddard
