In the Loop: Picture Perfect - RBSP and Florida Storm Clouds
One of the most powerful photos of NASA’s Radiation Belt Storm Probes prior to launch is this stunning image of the spacecraft and their Atlas V launch vehicle, taken after the rocket’s first roll out on Aug. 22, 2012 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Launch Complex-41.
RBSP is part of NASA's Living With a Star Program to explore aspects of the connected sun-Earth system that directly affect life and society. LWS is managed by the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. APL built the RBSP spacecraft and will manage the mission for NASA.
