BOULDER, Colo. -

An Atlas rocket carrying a University of Colorado experiment has been launched from Cape Canaveral.
The satellites launched Thursday include a CU project measuring the Earth's radiation belts. It is part of a larger mission to measure space weather.
CU professor Daniel Baker says radiation poses one of the greatest risks for orbiting spacecraft and needs more study.
