NASA mission to monitor dust in Earth’s atmosphere will launch

A new NASA mission will watch over dust-ups from orbit to quantify their effect on Earth’s climate. 

Dubbed the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation mission (EMIT), the experiment is scheduled to launch Thursday (July 14) for an International Space Station mission. It will ride to orbit aboard the SpaceX Commercial Resupply Mission 25 (CRS-25) inside the Dragon cargo spacecraft.
