  • A fleet of NASA spacecraft recently jointly observed a solar storm for the first time, the space agency announced Tuesday. The spacecraft, part of NASA's Sun-Earth Connection program, include two new spacecraft, TIMED and RHESSI, as well as the ACE, SOHO, IMAGE, TRACE, Polar, and Wind missions. The first results from TIMED, launched early this year, will be presented at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union this week in Washington DC.
  • ESA engineers have completed a set of vibration and acoustic tests of the Rosetta spacecraft. The spacecraft passed tests where it was exposed to noise levels of 135 decibels, designed to simulate the noise environment of launch. Rosetta, a mission to explore the comet Wirtanen, is scheduled to be shipped to the Kourou launch site in September for a January 2003 launch.
