来自美国宇航局的飞行沃洛普斯基金关于瓦勒普岛,位于弗吉尼亚州的工厂,其中美国航天局在1945年首次开始使用,并参加了1950年在甲火箭发射是航天局的网站做亚轨道和卫星的发射。平均而言,该网站主机发射每月一次,从沃洛普斯飞行队采取基金虽然有时在路上他们的设备和专业技能的情况在世界其他地区推出,以研究具体的科学应用。 

接受CNET记者丹尼尔特迪曼造访之旅2010年部分道路设施。您可以按照整个项目在这里。

The facility, which NASA first began using in 1945 and took over in 1950 is the space agency's site for doing sub-orbital and satellite launches. On average, the site hosts a launch once a month, though sometimes teams from Wallops Flight Facility take their equipment and expertise on the road to do launches in other parts of the world in order to study specific scientific applications.

CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman visited the facility as part of Road Trip 2010. You can follow the entire project here.

虽然它的火箭发射大部分都是瓦勒普岛,弗吉尼亚州,美国航天局的沃洛普斯设施进行飞行的道路上还需要它的节目。在许多年中,即包括前往阿拉斯加到火的北极光,试图研究这一现象的科学原理火箭。
Though most of its rocket launches are done on Wallops Island, Va., NASA's Wallops Flight Facility also takes its show on the road. In many years, that includes trips to Alaska to fire rockets into the aurora borealis in an attempt to study the phenomenon's scientific principles.

虽然该基金在沃洛普斯飞行任务的主要部分正在建设,发射,并研究了亚轨道飞行,或将在轨道上的卫星设计的火箭,美国航天局网站还设有航天局也将其大部分研究设计和手工制作高高空气球。这些气球用于悬挂天空很高的科学有效载荷。 

这些是我们现时从沃洛普斯气球飞行设施设计一些比例模型。
While a major part of the mandate at Wallops Flight Facility is building, launching, and studying rockets designed for sub-orbital flight or putting satellites in orbit, the NASA site is also where the space agency does most of its research into designing and crafting high-altitude balloons. Those balloons are used for hoisting scientific payloads high into the sky.

These are scale models of some of the balloons that are designed at Wallops Flight Facility.
