Summary
Abstract: The Polar Ionosphere Beacon Satellite Program, S-66, was for the purpose of ionospheric research. The S-66 program aimed to make possible a synoptic study of the ionosphere as it varies in time and space. The program was designed to provide information on the spatial and temporal variations for the entire ionosphere. The Polar Ionosphere Beacon Satellite S-66 was launched in October 1964. ...
