Sounding rocket to narrow the search for habitable planets
The Dual-channel Extreme Ultraviolet Continuum Experiment (DEUCE) is a sounding rocket that will measure the shorter, extreme-ultraviolet wavelengths of two Sun-like stars, Alpha Centauri A and B. Working in conjunction with SISTINE, these rockets will take these important measurements of ultraviolet light to help narrow the search for habitable planets.
