Van Allen Probes

Launched on August 30, 2012, the two Van Allen Probes spacecraft operate in the Van Allen Radiation Belt suffering the harsh conditions they are studying. While other satellites have the luxury of turning off or protecting themselves in the middle of intense space weather, the Van Allen Probes must continue to collect data, and therefore, were built to withstand the constant bombardment of particles and radiation they experience in this intense area of space.
