A spacecraft for all

In an interesting collaboration with Google, the ISEE-3 Reboot Project has given us the SpacecraftForAll website, showing ISEE-3’s position and some (not yet all) data feeds. The magnetometer plot below is one example. Later today, ISEE-3 will make its closest approach to the Moon, and this will mark the official start of the “ISEE-3 Citizen Science Interplanetary Mission.”

It is interesting to compare the ISEE-3 readings with those from the ACE probe – see the Real Time Solar Wind website, including magnetometer and proton plots.

Other ISEE-3 data is available here, as previously discussed.
