Explorer 1 was the first satellite launched by the United States, and was part of the U.S. participation in the International Geophysical mission followed the first two satellites the previous year; the Soviet Union's Sputnik 1 and 2, beginning the Cold War Space Race between the two nations.

(Gamma 1) γ 1 6. Re-entered Scientific satellite to study Lyman alpha radiation from the Sun. Loss of launch vehicle attitude at second stage burnout prevented it from reaching orbit.

Gamma was a Soviet gamma ray telescope. It was launched on 11 July into an orbit around Earth with a height of km and an inclination of degrees. It lasted for around 2 years. On board the mission were three telescopes, all of which could be pointed at the same source.

The project was a joint Soviet-French or: RKA. Directed by Roger Corman. With Dick Miller, Susan Cabot, Richard Devon, Eric Sinclair.

The tide of the space race changed on Januwhen the U.S. successfully launched Satellite Alpha, familiarly known as Explorer I. This satellite carried a small scientific payload that eventually discovered magnetic radiation belts around the Earth.

These belts were named after principal investigator James Van Allen. The Author: Mary Bellis. In all, the European Space Agency (ESA) has developed 60 spacecrafts over the last few decades.

Some of these, such as the ERS satellites and Envisat, are dedicated to monitoring the Earthand providing vital data on the health status of our planet.

Van Allen. The first U.S. satellite, Explorer I, launched on Jan. 31,returned data that was instrumental in the discovery of the Van Allen radiation belts. During the first decade of space exploration, all of the satellites were launched from either the United States or USSR.

On 1 Mayscientific findings from the two Explorer satellites disclosed an unexpected band of high-intensity radiation extending from 1, km above Earth to possibly an 13, km altitude. The radiation was described by Dr.

James A. Van Allen as ”1, times as intense as could be attributed to cosmic rays.”. The trapping regions of high-energy charged particles surrounding the Earth are called radiation (or van Allen) belts (Van Allen et al., ; Van Allen and Frank, ).

The inner one, located between about X = - Re (Earth radii, geocentric) in the equatorial plane, contains primarily protons with energies exceeding 10 MeV.

Flux maximum is at about X = 2 Re. (Distances. Immediately download the Satellite summary, chapter-by-chapter analysis, book notes, essays, quotes, character descriptions, lesson plans, and more - everything you need for studying or teaching Satellite.
