adele_2 May 21, 2018: SCIPP Member, Professor David Smith, and SCIPP alumni graduate students, Dr. Greg Bowers and Dr. Nicole Kelly, in the UCSC News with ADELE, "Lightning in the eyewall of a hurricane beamed antimatter toward the ground". !

AESOP_thumbMay 13, 2018: AESOP-Lite, the cosmic rays experiment SCIPP Members, Professor Robert Johnson, and Graduate Student Sarah Mechbal, have been working on, with a group at the University of Delaware, should** be launching from Esrange, Sweden at 0000 UTC (3.00pm PST) for a 5 days flight to Northern Canada. It is possible for everyone to watch the live stream (already going) provided by the Swedish Space Corporation, and to track the trajectory of our payload across the stratosphere.

**There is always a chance the launch may get moved to another date if the winds pick up. Please check the website for more information! Wish them luck!
