Garfield STEM Activities
We will be conducting a joint High Altitude Balloon(HAB) launch with VHS this Friday (planned right now for the Belen airport). We are launching a cerium doped YAG (yttrium garnet aluminum) scintillator and a fluorescent mineral package including sodalite, calcite, eucryptite, common opal, meionite, and anthophyllite. The minerals vary in the frequencies of UV at which they should fluoresce. Some will glow in short wave UV (UVC) while others will glow in UVA or UVB. UVC is normally blocked by the ozone layer, but we should see it (making the eucryptite glow) because we are above the ozone layer for our flight.
