Latest THEMIS Stories
The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) camera on NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft has completed an unprecedented full decade of observing Mars from orbit.
People still talk about the launch. It was the first – and so far, only – time NASA has launched five satellites at one time. Carefully balanced inside a Delta II rocket, the five THEMIS (short for Timed History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms) spacecraft were launched into space from Cape Canaveral at 6:01 p.m. ET on February 17, 2007.
The launch of the Delta II rocket carrying NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) has now been moved to Saturday.
Two small NASA probes that had been used to study space weather now are orbiting the moon to study its interior and surface composition.
2 probes, repositioned from THEMIS mission, will map surface magnetic fields.
Whether it's a giant solar flare or a beautiful green-blue aurora, just about everything interesting in space weather happens due to a phenomenon called magnetic reconnection.
NASA's Time History of Events and Macroscale Interaction during Substorms (THEMIS) spacecraft combined with computer models have helped track the origin of the energetic particles in Earth's magnetic atmosphere that appear during a kind of space weather called a substorm.
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- ATK (NYSE: ATK) and NASA are marking the 10-year anniversary of NASA's Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite.
New mission, ARTEMIS, begins science operations in Lagrange-point parking orbit.
Flight Dynamics data from THEMIS-B (one of the two ARTEMIS spacecraft) indicated that one of the EFI (electric field instrument)spherical tip masses may have been struck by a meteoroid at 0605 UT on October 14.
