Low density wind tunnel tests were carried out at Mach 2 and 3 to simulate the release of nitric oxide in the upper atmosphere from a sounding rocket. The supersonic flow contained atomic oxygen, and the wall-less chemiluminescent reaction of O with NO was investigated. Reaction rate constants thus obtained were up to 5 orders of magnitude higher than previously obtained laboratory rate constants.
