the projects involved
The Projects Involved

There are currently five science investigation teams participating in the VIM.

  • Magnetic field investigation
  • Low energy charged particle investigation
  • Plasma investigation
  • Cosmic ray investigation
  • Plasma wave investigation

These five instruments are:

  • MAG Magnetic field investigation
  • LECP Low energy charged particle investigation
  • PLS Plasma investigation
  • CRS Cosmic ray investigation
  • PWS Plasma wave investigation


cosmic ray projects
Cosmic Ray Projects
  • Project mass: 7.5 kg
  • Average experiment power 5.4 w
  • This investigation studied the origin and acceleration process, life history, and dynamic contribution of interstellar cosmic rays, the nucleosynthesis of elements in cosmic-ray sources, the behavior of cosmic rays in the interplanetary medium, and the trapped planetary energetic-particle environment.

  • The instrumentation included a High-Energy Telescope System (HETS) and a Low-Energy Telescope System (LETS). The HETS covered an energy range between 6 and 500 MeV/nucleon for nuclei ranging in atomic numbers from 1 through 30. In addition, electrons in the energy range between 3 and 100 MeV/nucleon were measured by this telescope and an electron telescope. The LETS measured the energy and determined the identity of nuclei for energies between 0.15 and 30 MeV/nucleon and atomic numbers from 1 to 30. The instruments also measured the anisotropies of electrons and nuclei. In addition, electrons in the energy range between 3 and 100 MeV/nucleon were measured by an electron telescope.

voyagers gave most info
Voyagers Gave Most Info
  • They have given us some of the most extensive Knowledge yet known of: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
  • Pluto is now known as a giant ball of orbiting ice and rock and was little discovered.
  • Voyagers 1 & 2 are the only man man made craft to leave the ring our solar system.
  • Launched in 1977, both Voyager spacecraft are still returning data x Amount of times a week in 2002 from their positions well beyond Pluto.


  • In 1977 Nasa built and launched two spacecraft named Voyager 1 And Voyager 2.
  • They were lunched on the Titan III and Centaur rockets
  • They began their long mission of exploring the solar system but as of now they have left the outer ring orbit of Neptune and Pluto
  • They are both in service and are still sending pictures back to us
  • The optimal reason for the project was to research the unknown about the planets.
