For this investigation the paticle detector FRED (Flight Radiation Environment Detektor) was developed at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel This project is in progress by 4 PhD studens from the department of Extraterrestrial Physics at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel. The spacecraft which will be used is a Bexus balloon. THis balloons can reach an altitude of 35Km and the launch side is in Esrange near Kiruna in north Sweden.
