This paper is the first of a series reporting on the M.I.T. experiments flown on recent satellites. I will begin by reviewing the operations of the M.I.T. Faraday cup, which is the basic plasma detector used by our group, and will then turn to some specific observations made by the IMP-2 satellite. The magnetopause and bow shock will be the main topic of discussion in this paper.
