Abstract:
The Sampling for Microorganisms In The High atmosphere (SMITH) payload will sample for the presence of cells at 36 km. The payload will also characterize the environment microorganisms may encounter in the stratosphere including temperature, pressure, and humidity. The SMITH 2012 concept will be an extension of the SMITH 2011 payload's data. The SMITH team is led by Noelle Bryan, under the guidance of Dr. B. Christner, P.I. The team members include M. Alleman, K. Blackburn, B. Broekhoeven, S. Burke, and A. Spring.
