Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission

The Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) Mission is a robotic space mission launched by NASA to research the Earth’s magnetosphere using four identical spacecraft flying in a tetrahedral formation. Launched in March 2015, the mission’s objective is to collect information related to microphysics of magnetic reconnection, particle acceleration and turbulence. A group of Indian scientists recently developed a theory that eliminated all conflicts that existed between MMS mission’s findings and the theoretical predictions.
