The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) was launched by the Space Shuttle on Septem into a near circular orbit at km altitude inclined 57 degrees to the Equator. Measurements were initiated a few days later, including solar energy inputs to the atmosphere and vertical profiles of temperature, important minor gas species Cited by:   UARS (Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite) was launched in as the first satellite dedicated to understanding the dynamics of the ozone layer. This minute video looks at the ozone layer and how UARS is used to study it. It was produced by the Scientific Visualization Studio at Goddard Space Flight Center.

NASA’s decommissioned Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite fell back to Earth at 12 a.m. EDT ( GMT), as Friday, Sept. 23, turned to Saturday, Sept. 24 on the United States east coast. The Joint Space Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California has determined the satellite entered the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean at The ton Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) will return to Earth in the next several weeks, according to NASA. At least some pieces of the spacecraft, which is 35 feet long and 15 feet wide, are expected to survive the fiery plunge into the atmosphere and reach the ground.
