Monitoring van Allen from the ISS: Energised particle Radiation
The aim of our experiment is to measure ionised sub-atomic particle radiation from the inner Van Allen belt; recording the energy levels of the electrons and energised protons in this region. Most of the recording will take place over the South Atlantic Anomaly where the inner belt can lower to a roughly 200km altitude, where the ISS will pass through.
