Atmosphere-Space Interaction Monitor
Atmosphere-Space Interaction Monitor (ASIM) is a project led by the European Space Agency. It will place cameras and x-ray- and γ-detectors on the International Space Station, where it will observe the upper atmosphere, looking for sprites, jets and elves and terrestrial gamma-ray flashes in connection with thunderstorms. It is hoped that measurements of these phenomena from space will contribute to our understanding of the upper atmosphere.
