Welcome to the home of AESOP-Lite! In this website you will find updates about our ongoing mission, as well as information about the instrument, the science behind the mission, and the previous flight from 2018. We plan on launching our instrument from McMurdo Station, Antarctica in November of 2022. Check out the Palestine, Texas (2022) blog to track our progress during integration at the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility.
