Single Event Upsets in Aircraft Avionics

In this aircraft avionics worksheet, science fans read about the first unmanned air vehicle that collects data about the Earth and is subject to damage by cosmic ray showers. Pupils analyze two graphs of data showing the neutron flux vs. the altitude and the number of upsets vs. the flight hours. Students answer 9 questions using the graphs about the altitude of the aircraft, the number of upsets by cosmic rays encountered.
