VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. –  Segments of the Pegasus XL launch vehicle are moved into Building 1555.  The Pegasus will launch NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer Mission, or IBEX, satellite from Kwajalein Island in the Marshall Islands, South Pacific.  IBEX will make the first map of the boundary between the solar system and interstellar space.  IBEX is the first mission designed to detect the edge of the solar system. As the solar wind from the sun flows out beyond Pluto, it collides with the material between the stars, forming a shock front. IBEX contains two neutral atom imagers designed to detect particles from the termination shock at the boundary between the solar system and interstellar space. IBEX also will study galactic cosmic rays, energetic particles from beyond the solar system that pose a health and safety hazard for humans exploring beyond Earth orbit. IBEX will make these observations from a highly elliptical orbit that takes it beyond the interference of the Earth's magnetosphere.  Photo credit: NASA/Moran KSC-08pd1674

IBEX contains two neutral atom imagers designed to detect particles from the termination shock at the boundary between the solar system and interstellar space. IBEX also will study galactic cosmic rays, energetic particles from beyond the solar system that pose a health and safety hazard for humans exploring beyond Earth orbit.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.  – At Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, technicians prepare NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer, or IBEX, mission spacecraft to be lifted from the shipping platform and moved to a mobile stand in the background. The IBEX satellite will make the first map of the boundary between the Solar System and interstellar space.  IBEX is the first mission designed to detect the edge of the Solar System. As the solar wind from the sun flows out beyond Pluto, it collides with the material between the stars, forming a shock front. IBEX contains two neutral atom imagers designed to detect particles from the termination shock at the boundary between the Solar System and interstellar space. IBEX also will study galactic cosmic rays, energetic particles from beyond the Solar System that pose a health and safety hazard for humans exploring beyond Earth orbit. IBEX will make these observations from a highly elliptical orbit that takes it beyond the interference of the Earth's magnetosphere.  IBEX is targeted for launch from the Pegasus XL rocket on Oct. 5.  Photo credit: NASA/Mark Mackley KSC-08pd2403
