Explorador de la Frontera Interestelar-Poster DLESE Reviewed Collection
This poster outlines the major mission highlights of the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission, a Small Explorer Earth-orbiting spacecraft that is designed to map the distant boundary between the solar wind from our Sun and the interstellar medium. The poster aims to answer the following questions: ? What is IBEX and what is it exploring? ? How does IBEX explore the boundary of our Solar System? ? How do scientists communicate with the spacecraft? ? How do we launch IBEX? ? What will we learn from IBEX, and how will it help us? This poster supports a full-length planetarium show about the IBEX mission and the boundary of the Solar System. Each short activity/product helps to build awareness and engagement in the science and engineering aspects of the mission that is reinforced as visitors choose to participate in more activities, including viewing the Show and the mission website. This is a Spanish-language translation of an English-language product (which passed review in 20008), titled: IBEX: Exploring the Edge of Our Solar System.
