 NASA's Radiation Belt Storm Probes are flying in Earth orbit after a recent successful liftoff and ascent. The rocket's Centaur upper stage released the probes one at a time and sent them into different orbits, kicking off the two-year mission to study Earth's radiation belts. To read more about the Radiation Belt Storm Probes, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/rbsp/main/index.html This mission is a great example of how NASA studies solar weather and an up-to-date extension to the NASA Explorer Schools lesson Geometry: Space Math Problems: Solar Storms. To access this lesson and get your students studying and tracking space weather, log into the NES Virtual Campus.
