Below is a list of all Heliophysics Educator Ambassador Program's satellite missions, followed by a brief content list of the educational materials presented on the individual mission's EPO website.
Jump to:


AIM (Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere) -- AIM is a NASA space mission designed to study the highest clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere.

IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) MMS (Magnetospheric Multiscale, A Solar-Terrestrial Probe) -- This mission will explore both the dayside magnetopause and the nightside magnetotail, where magnetic reconnection occurs. RBSP (Radiation Belt Storm Probes) -- RBSP, part of NASA’s Living With a Star program, will provide unprecedented insight into the physical dynamics of the Van Allen radiation belts and give scientists the data they need to make predictions of changes in this critical region of space. This mission will be launched in May of 2012.

SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) -- SDO studies how solar activity is created and how space weather comes from that activity. Measurements of the interior of the Sun, the Sun's magnetic field, the hot plasma of the solar corona, and the irradiance that creates the ionospheres of the planets are SDO’s primary data products.

THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms) -- THEMIS /ARTEMIS studies the causes of Northern Lights TIMED -- TIMED is a mission studying the influences of the Sun and humans on the least explored and understood region of Earth’s atmosphere – the Mesosphere and the Lower Thermosphere/Ionosphere. Voyager -- The twin Voyager spacecraft are exploring regions of space never before encountered as they leave the solar system.
