The Van Allen Probes mission (formerly known as Radiation Belt Storm Probes mission, renamed on Nov. 9, 2012) is part of NASA’s Living With a Star (LWS) Geospace program, and consists of twin spacecraft carrying scientific instruments designed to answer a number of outstanding questions about the physical processes involved in the enhancement and decay of the radiation belts. The two Van Allen Probes operate in nearly identical eccentric orbits that cover the entire radiation belt region and survey the harsh regions of space on various scales of space and time. They were successfully launched August 30, 2012. This site and all sub-sites to it have been developed in collaboration between the KASI and NASA.
