Smoke and steam rolls engulfs the launch tower at Launch Complex 17-A, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, as the Boeing Delta II rocket propels NASA’s Genesis spacecraft into the sky. The Genesis/Delta launch occurred on time at 12:13:40 p.m. EDT. Genesis is on a journey to collect and return to Earth just 10 to 20 micrograms of solar wind, invisible charged particles that flow outward from the Sun. The particles will be studied by scientists over the next century to search for answers to fundamental questions about the exact composition of our star and the birth of our solar system
