Summary
Abstract: IMP-8 (IMP-J) was launched by NASA on October 26, 1973 to measure the
magnetic fields, plasmas, and energetic charged particles (e.g.,
cosmic rays) of the Earth's magnetotail and magnetosheath and of the
near-Earth solar wind. IMP-8 continues to operate.

The magnetic field experiment on the IMP-8 spacecraft utilizes a
tri-axial fluxgate (saturable ... View entire text
