The Van Allen Probes (formerly RBSP for Radiation Belt Storm Probes) in Earth Orbit
A basic visualization illustrating the orbit of RBSP around the Earth. This pair of probes will orbit the Earth between about 1.5 and 6 Earth radii to cover the region of the geomagnetically trapped particle radiation.
