Project PoSSUM: The FIRST manned suborbital research program
Project PoSSUM is a 501(c)3 non-profit suborbital research program devoted to the ongoing observation of our upper atmosphere. PoSSUM is the only suborbital program that trains YOU to be a scientist-astronaut. Why be a 'spaceflight participant' when you can now do important climate research, fly through aurora and 'space clouds', and learn from the world's best space scientists and astronaut instructors? Your flight may be tax-deductible.
PoSSUM Instrumentation is supported by NASA's Flight Opportunities Program as the 'Noctilucent Cloud Imagery and Tomography Experiment'. Click here for more information.
