Latest Swarm Stories
SAN MARCOS, Calif. and TORONTO, Oct. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- REGEN Energy Inc. announced today the closure of a Series B funding round in excess of $12 million.
The first set of high-resolution results from ESA’s three-satellite Swarm constellation reveals the most recent changes in the magnetic field that protects our planet.
Although they were launched only five months ago, ESA’s trio of Swarm satellites are already delivering results with a precision that took earlier missions 10 years to achieve.
The European Space Agency is in the midst of maneuvering their three Swarm mission satellites into position as the probes prepare to deliver what is being called the best survey of the Earth’s magnetic field to date.
Reaching a significant milestone for ESA’s magnetic field mission, the Swarm satellites have completed the critical first phase of their new mission.
ESA’s three-satellite Swarm constellation was lofted into a near-polar orbit by a Russian Rockot launcher this afternoon. For four years, it will monitor Earth’s magnetic field, from the depth of our planet’s core to the heights of its upper atmosphere.
After months of intensive training, the Swarm mission control team are ready for liftoff on Friday. The team will carefully shepherd the trio of magnetic explorers through their critical launch and early orbit phase, ready to react to any problem.
Preparations for Friday’s launch of ESA’s magnetic explorer have reached an important milestone – the constellation is now in the Plesetsk launch tower.
The European Space Agency (ESA) said that it has finished placing all three Swarm satellites on their launch adapter, getting them ready for launch in two weeks.
The launch of ESA’s magnetic field mission from Plesetsk, Russia, has been postponed by about a week.
The Migratory Locust (Locusta migratoria), is the most widespread species of locust. It occurs throughout Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. It was once very common in Europe but has now become rare there. Because of the vast geographic area it occupies, which comprises many different ecological zones, numerous subspecies have been described. However, not all experts agree on the validity of some of these subspecies. Pigmentation and size of the migratory locust vary according to its...
