New Yorkers May Get Chance to 'Shoot' NASA Rockets

03.12.12 Bucky Turco

NASA is planning to launch a bunch of rockets into the edge of space for an atmosphere study that could be visible along much of the East Coast. Five rockets will be fired off in five minutes from a facility in Virginia and each will disperse a chemical, creating a “long, milky-white cloud” that scientists can monitor reports the Associated Press. It will also give amateur photographers an opportunity to capture the event and for those in New York City, even the “glowing exhaust trails” may also be seen. The launch, which is dependent on optimal weather conditions, is scheduled to take place between March 14 and April 4, but no matter what day is ultimately chosen, it’s going to be like Christmas for Chemtrail conspiracy theorists.
