ESA's unexpected fleet of space weather monitors

29 June 2018

A team of researchers, supported under ESA's Basic Activities, has recently investigated a resourceful new method of monitoring space weather. They utilised the data from the Swarm and GOCE Earth Explorer missions, and from LISA Pathfinder to investigate whether platform magnetometer data could also be used for space weather diagnostics.

 

Swarm satellite thermo-optical properties and external geometry published

22 June 2018

Modelling of non-gravitational forces such as drag or solar radiation pressure requires knowledge of the thermo-optical properties and geometry of the outer surfaces of the spacecraft. These are now provided in a memorandum and can be accessed here.
