The "MAGIC" (Mesospheric Aerosol - Genesis, Interaction and Composition) payload was launched from Esrange, 10 January 2005, with a single stage improved Orion 14 inch motor to an altitude of 95.1km. SSC (Swedish Space Corporation) in cooperation with MISU (Meteorological Institute of Stockholm), LASP (The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, at the University of Colorado) and NRL (Naval Research Laboratory, Washington DC) conducted the project. The SNSB (Swedish National Space Board) funded the MAGIC project. The main scientific object was to collect cosmic dust particles and bring the samples back to the lab for analysis. The vital parts of the service system consist of a MIDAS gyro platform, an SSC telemetry system with wraparound antenna, an Ashtech G12 GPS receiver with wraparound antenna, a power system and an SSC recovery module with a motor separation system.
