Space Science/Solar-Terrestrial Missions

  • Herbert J. Kramer


A NASA/GSFC solar-terrestrial mission in the Explorer Program (Explorer-71) with the objectives to determine: the elemental and isotopic composition of matter, the origin of the elements, the formation of the solar corona and acceleration of the solar wind. S/C designer and builder: JHU/APL. The S/C structure has two octagonal decks, 1.6 m across and 1 m high; the S/C is spin stabilized with the spin axis Earth/sun pointing (star and sun sensors). Mission launch occurred on August 25,1997 with a Delta II launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral, Florida. S/C mass = 785 kg (includes 189 kg of hydrazine fuel for orbit insertion and maintenance), power=443 W (EOL) from four fixed solar arrays, nominal life of the mission is 2 years with a five-year goal.1434)

    Note: The new S/C was named after the mythical bird “Phoenix.” In ancient Egypt and in classical antiquity, phoenix is a fabulous long-lived bird associated with the worship of the sun. As its end approached, the phoenix fashioned a nest of aromatic boughs and spices, set it on fire, and was consumed in the flames. From the pyre miraculously sprang a new phoenix, which, after embalming its father’s ashes in an egg of myrrh, flew with the ashes to Heliopolis (“City of the Sun”) in Egypt, where it deposited them on the altar in the temple of the Egyptian god of the sun, Re.Google Scholar
