    Swarm’s orbital dance: counter-rotating and closer, for the benefit of science

    Since variations in Earth’s magnetic field directly reflect the flow of fluid in the outermost core, new information from Swarm will further our understanding of the physics and dynamics of Earth's stormy heart—and the satellites are recently flying in a counter-rotating phase and closer in their separation, to enable scientists to discover new elements.
