mission research

Spent the day getting to grips with the various missions here at SSL.
They're documented really well online with loads of videos and interviews, diagrams, data.... lots of links here to various missions

We're interested in how the data recieved is translated into information we understand, and how those decisions are made and informed.
We need to unpick the mind of things like this great object the aptly titled "instrument data processing unit"!

Also a wealth of images on the network recording various simple magnetic experiments like this one below:

there's a series of these really beautiful electromagnetic drawings/structures

We're finding lots of nice ways in and forming many ideas of how we can work here.
