Trajectory Plots on Microfiche


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1973-10-30 to 1988-01-11


This data set is microfiche of a hard copy report prepared by J. D. Sullivan, A. J. Lazarus, P. A. Milligan, and E. J. Groener (MIT R CSR-TR-81-1, May 14, 1981), and is entitled ``IMP 8 (Explorer 50) Trajectory: October 30, 1973 to November 9, 1980''. For each period of 12 days, the report provides five trajectory plots, in earth radii. Two plots are in GSM Cartesian: Y vs. X and Z vs. Y. Three plots are in GSE Cartesian: Y vs. X, Z vs. Y, and the distance in Y-Z plane vs. X. The fifth plot also contains the trajectory of the moon and modeled curves of bow-shock and magnetopause.
