Dear ISWI Participant:

Last year, I sent out many issues related to RBSP (Radiation Belt Space Probes). Those RBSP issues are as follows:

Vol.4 No16 CSSTEAP Newsletter; SERC School in India; a paper on the heliosheath; website for RBSP conference

Vol.4 No58 RBSP 2012 - Part 1: Photo collage and the Final Program for this conference

Vol.4 No75 RBSP 2012 - Part 2: 200+ photos of this conference taken by one participant (G. Maeda)

Vol.4 No77 RBSP 2012 - Part 3: Talk by Dr. D. Sibeck: "Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP): Partnership with Other Missions."

Vol.4 No78 RBSP 2012 - Part 4: White Paper by Dr. D. Sibeck: "Opportunities for Cooperation: THEMIS and RBSP"

Vol.4 No82 RBSP 2012 - Part 5: Thank You Letter from the organizing committee -- and all presentations

Vol.4 No87 RBSP Mission -- Interface Control Document (ICD) -- Signed and approved for release.

Vol.4 No94 (1) RBSP Mission launch is soon, and (2) SuperSID Software

After the successful deployment of both space probes in Earth orbit, NASA officially changed the name of them to "Van Allen Probes". I attach the Wikipedia write-up on this pair of space probes. If you have any comments on these radiation belt probes, please send them my way.

Humbly and dutifully in the service of ISWI,
