NASA is using a DC-8 aircraft as a flying science laboratory. The platform aircraft, based at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif., collects data for many experiments in support of scientific projects serving the world scientific community. Included in this community are NASA, federal, state, academic and foreign investigators. Data gathered by the
DC-8 at flight altitude and by remote sensing have been used for scientific studies in archeology, ecology, geography,
hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, volcanology, atmospheric chemistry, soil science and biology.
