    An aurora is a natural light display that shimmers in the sky. Colorful blue, red, yellow, green, and orange lights shift gently and change shape like softly blowing curtains. Auroras are only visible at night, and usually only appear in lower polar regions. Auroras are visible almost every night near the Arctic and Antarctic Circles, which are about degrees north and south of the Equator.   Reference: ESA/SRE()7. This Definition Study Report (also known as the Red Book) presents the outcome of the CHEOPS Definition study. It describes the resulting mission concept that will fulfil the mission science requirements, and therefore allow us to achieve the science objectives presented in the original proposal, and further detailed and elaborated in this document.

    A magnetosphere is a region of space surrounding an astronomical object in which charged particles are affected by that object's magnetic field. It is created by a star or planet with an active interior dynamo.. In the space environment close to a planetary body, the magnetic field resembles a magnetic r out, field lines can be significantly distorted by the flow of electrically. Template:Infobox spaceflight The Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS) is a NASA unmanned space mission to study the Earth's magnetosphere, using four identical spacecraft flying in a tetrahedral formation. The spacecraft were launched on 13 March at UTC. It is designed to gather information about the microphysics of magnetic reconnection, energetic particle acceleration, .

    Envisat was ESA's successor to ERS. Envisat was launched in with 10 instruments aboard and at eight tons is the largest civilian Earth observation mission. More advanced imaging radar, radar altimeter and temperature-measuring radiometer instruments extend ERS data sets. This will damage the magnetosphere and the magnetic field begins to open at the poles of the earth. This occurs when the sun's magnetic field points southwards. This can destroy all the circuits. The magnetosphere acts as an armor. It extends out to 43, miles.

Solar Terrestrial Physics Division, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama The Inner Magnetosphere Imager (IMI) mission will carry instruments to globally image energetic neutral atoms, far and extreme ultraviolet light, and X rays.

These imagers will see the ring current, inner plasmasheet, plasmasphere, aurora, and geocorona. The Inner Magnetosphere Imager (IMI) mission will carry instruments to globally image energetic neutral atoms, far and extreme ultraviolet light, and X rays.

These imagers will see the ring current, inner plasmasheet, plasmasphere, aurora, and geocorona. After 30 years of in situ measurements of the Earth's magnetosphere, scientists have assembled an incomplete picture of its global composition and dynamics. Imaging the magnetosphere from space will enable scientists to better understand the global shape of the inner magnetosphere, its components and processes.

The proposed inner magnetosphere imager (IMI) mission will obtain Author: Charles L. Johnson, Melody C. Herrmann. The Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration (IMAGE) is a NASA Explorer mission that is the first space mission dedicated to imaging of the Earth's magnetosphere.

IMAGE was launched from Vandenberg AFB into an elliptical polar orbit by a Delta II launch vehicle on Ma G.K. Parks, in Encyclopedia of Atmospheric Sciences (Second Edition), Introduction. Magnetospheres are new magnetic structures discovered during the space age by satellite-borne instruments that made possible physical measurements in distant regions previously not accessible.

The first magnetosphere discovered was Earth's. Soon afterward, another discovery showed that space. The bu eting of the magnetosphere by the solar wind and the interactions between magnetospheric and near-Earth solar wind plasma is the cause of many phenomena in the magnetosphere and the ionosphere, and a ects the way in which we observe many other features.

For many years, scientists have tried to understand the physical phenomena in. A magnetosphere is the region around a planet dominated by the planet's magnetic field. Other planets in our solar system have magnetospheres, but Earth has the strongest one of all the rocky planets: Earth's magnetosphere is a vast, comet-shaped bubble, which has played a crucial role in our planet's habitability.

This report contains the results of ESA's Definition Study (Phase B1), including a description of the mission science objectives and requirements, payload, mission scenario, science operations and expected science return, the main features of the spacecraft design, and the proposed management.

Students will learn about polarity, attraction, repulsion, and magnetic field strength, which are the basic terms and concepts we will be us-ing throughout the THEMIS program.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration Marshall Space Flight Center •. IMAGE studied the global response of the magnetosphere to changes in the solar wind.

Major changes occur to the configuration of the magnetosphere as a result of changes in and on the Sun, which in turn change the solar wind. IMAGE used neutral atom, ultraviolet, and radio imaging techniques to detect and gather data on these changes. Earth's magnetosphere The magnetosphere is the region of space surrounding Earth where the dominant magnetic field is the magnetic field of Earth, rather than the magnetic field of interplanetary space.

The magnetosphere is formed by the. A magnetosphere is a magnetic envelope of charged particles that surrounds some planets, including Earth. It is invisible to the human eye, but Cassini's Magnetospheric Imaging Instrument was able to detect the hydrogen atoms (represented in red) that escape it.

In response to this report, NASA formed the Magnetosphere Imager (MI) mission team to examine the feasibility of various types of instruments for magnetospheric imaging. The results of the MI mission team have recently been published in.

The Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission is a Solar-Terrestrial Probe mission comprising four identically instrumented spacecraft that will use Earth's magnetosphere as a laboratory to study the microphysics of three fundamental plasma processes: magnetic reconnection, energetic particle acceleration, and turbulence.

For each plasma parameter, equatorial (x-y plane) and noon-midnight magnetic meridian (x-z plane) cut planes are plotted in GSM coordinates.The outermost part of the Earth's or any other planet's atmosphere is the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere is dominated by the Earth's magnetic field, but it also contains a very thin amount of.The MMS mission is set to explore the magnetic reconnection at the nose of the magnetosphere, providing the first ever three-dimensional view of this process as it is happening and unprecedented amounts of information to help scientists better understand what sets .
