CSSWE rings in the new year!

January 3, 2013

Happy new year! CSSWE continues to operate well, providing on-orbit science data. Here are a few milestones that the satellite has recently passed:
*110 days of on-orbit operations.
*90 UTC days with the REPTile instrument on.
*1 million six-second science data samples downlinked.
*Professor Xinlin Li (CSSWE PI) presented preliminary CSSWE science data at the 2012 AGU Fall Meeting in December.

2012 was quite a year for CSSWE: it went from final testing at CU to an on-orbit operational satellite. Here’s to an even better 2013!
