IBEX Map of ENAs at 0.6-1 KeV

January 10, 2013
First IBEX map of the heliosphere showing the distribution of energetic neutral atoms (ENAs) across the entire sky in the range of 0.6 to 1 kiloelectron volts; an unexpected swath of higher numbers of energetic neutral atoms, called the "ribbon", was detected. IBEX simultaneously makes a total of fourteen maps at different energies. Credit: SwRI
