Investigate Magnetic Fields in Three Dimensions
NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission, which launched on March 12, provides an opportunity to bring hands-on science activities related to the mission to classrooms. The MMS mission will study the mystery of how magnetic fields around Earth connect and disconnect, explosively releasing energy via a process called magnetic reconnection. Using four identical spacecraft, the mission will provide the first three-dimensional view of this fundamental process that occurs throughout the universe.
Plus: NASA partnered with the University of Virginia and the International Society of Technology Education (ISTE) to design and publish a set of digital-age resources for students and educators, callediMAGINETICspace. These freely downloadable resources are designed to encourage teachers and students to work creatively and collaboratively through a study of science and engineering principles related to space weather and the MMS mission.
