SOLVING MAGNETOSPHERIC ACCELERATION, RECONNECTION AND TURBULENCE
Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission Science Working Team - May 2015

 

MMS will use a four-spacecraft suite to study reconnection, the most important process in the Earth's magnetosphere and in astrophysical objects such as solar flares. RICE will be leading the EPO for this mission.

MMS LINKS OF INTEREST


  • Movie showing how four spacecraft can determine the orientation and motion of a boundary by using a weather analogy
  • Movie using actual Cluster data showing how four spacecraft are critical for determining the magnetic field structure of reconnection. The sound is a sonification of the magnetic field data across the boundary.
  • Current and Predicted Space Weather Conditions
  • "One Stop Shopping" for NASA Interns around the country - Recruiting NASA Interns, Fellows and Scholars
