CU satellite project launched

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - An Atlas rocket carrying a University of Colorado experiment has been launched from Cape Canaveral.

The satellites launched Thursday include a CU project measuring the Earth's radiation belts. It is part of a larger mission to measure space weather.

CU professor Daniel Baker says radiation poses one of the greatest risks for orbiting spacecraft and needs more study.
