Richard Collins
Dept. of Atmospheric Science and GI, UAF


MTeX is a rocket based experiment designed to study turbulence in the upper mesosphere. The experiment is based on two rocket payloads that were successfully launched at Poker Flat on the night of 25-26 January 2015. In this talk I will present the scientific goals of the experiment, the implementation of the rocket investigation, and our first results. A facebook page on the experiment is available at
