在肯尼迪航天中心附近的佛罗里达州提图斯维尔的Astrotech有效载荷处理设施的2号楼南封装湾进行拆封作业期间,一台起重机朝着下面的1号小烟囱(美国宇航局磁层多尺度观测站的两个观测站)下降。MMS的上层堆栈mini stack 2计划在两周后到达。MMS是一个日地探测器任务,由四个相同仪器的航天器组成,它们将利用地球的磁层作为实验室,研究三种基本等离子体过程的微物理:磁重联、高能粒子加速和湍流。2015年3月12日,在卡纳维拉尔角空军基地的41号航天发射场发射联合发射联盟阿特拉斯五号火箭。
MMS Spacecraft Uncrated & Moved
A crane is lowered toward the lower stack, mini-stack number 1, two of the observatories for NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale Observatory, or MMS, during uncrating operations in the Building 2 south encapsulation bay at the Astrotech payload processing facility in Titusville, Florida, near Kennedy Space Center. The MMS upper stack, mini-stack number 2, is scheduled to arrive in about two weeks. MMS is a Solar Terrestrial Probes mission comprising four identically instrumented spacecraft that will use Earth’s magnetosphere as a laboratory to study the microphysics of three fundamental plasma processes: magnetic reconnection, energetic particle acceleration and turbulence. Launch aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station is targeted for March 12, 2015.
