These web pages provide information about, data from, and movies of the NASA rocket (suborbital) experiments at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado (CU).

This experiment is supported by the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission for calibrating the SDO EUV Variability Experiment (EVE). The scientific payload is provided by CU/LASP and USC, and the rocket motors and control subsystems are provided by NASA GSFC Wallops Flight Facility and their subcontractors as part of the NASA Sounding Rocket Program.
