The university's rocket scientists - Prof. Supriya Chakrabarti and Asst. Prof. Timothy Cook of the Department of Physics and Applied Physics - are launching a rocket-borne experiment called PICTURE-B to take direct images of the disk of dust surrounding a nearby Sun-like star. The launch is scheduled to take place before dawn on Nov. 16 from the Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico

Update - Nov. 19, 2015:  The PICTURE-B payload on a NASA Black Brant IX sounding rocket is scheduled for launch November 21 at 4:30 a.m. EST (2:30 a.m. MST) from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.  The previous launch attempt on November 16 was postponed because of high winds.

It's also worth clarifying that this is PICTURE-B, as opposed to C, which is the thread title, but at the moment it doesn't seem reasonable to be dividing the PICTURE project into several threads.
