A 60-year-old mystery regarding the source of some energetic and potentially damaging particles in the Earth’s radiation belts has been solved, using data from a student operated shoebox-sized satellite. The results indicate energetic electrons in Earth’s inner radiation belt – primarily near its inner edge – are created by cosmic rays born from explosions […]
