The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Launches New Satellite to Study Van Allen Radiation Belts in the Earth's Inner Magnetosphere

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency launched a satellite to study the Van Allen radiation belts in the earth's inner magnetosphere. The exploration of Energization and Radiation in Geospace (ERG) spacecraft was launched from the Uchinoura Space Center, Japan, aboard an Epsilon rocket.
