INSPIRESat-1/MinXSS-3 launched and working!

February 14

The launch occurred right on time and without a hitch! INSPIRESat-1 was deployed at 2022-02-14 00:47:31.5 UT into the planned polar orbit, circling the world right along the “terminator”, that 6 AM/6PM time that is always in the sun.

Here is one of the many stories that have been published about the mission, this one by NASA focusing on the contributions of our graduate students: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2022/sun/nasa-s-minxss-instrument-cubesat-launches-to-study-sun-s-flares
