First-of-its-kind measurement to probe the lower solar atmosphere
The Solar eruptioN Integral Field Spectrograph (SNIFS) sounding rocket is designed to break new ground by using a unique set of capabilities to probe the most vexingly complex region of the solar atmosphere, the chromosphere. The SNIFS rocket mission has a primary objective to explore the energetics and dynamics of chromosphere using a next-generation solar spectral imager.
