In the Loop: Happy Fourth of July from the RBSP Team

Happy Fourth of July from the RBSP Team

With less than 50 days until scheduled launch on August 23, 2012, the RBSP team is hard at work preparing the spacecraft—but they did take a few minutes to pose for this photo celebrating July 4, America’s Independence Day. Credit: JHU/APL

The Radiation Belt Storm Probes mission is part of NASA’s Living With a Star program, which is managed by Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., manages the mission and is building and will operate the RBSP spacecraft for NASA.
