SpaceX Bags IMAP Mission Launch Services Contract

Total Cost For NASA To Launch IMAP And The Secondary Payloads Is Approximately $109.4 Million

NASA has selected SpaceX to provide launch services for the agency's Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP) mission, which includes four secondary payloads. IMAP will help researchers better understand the boundary of the heliosphere, a magnetic barrier surrounding our solar system. This region is where the constant flow of particles from our Sun, called the solar wind, collides with winds from other stars. This collision limits the amount of harmful cosmic radiation entering the heliosphere. IMAP will collect and map neutral particles that make it through, as well as investigate the fundamental processes of how particles are accelerated in space, from its vantage point orbiting the Sun at the Lagrange 1 point directly between the Sun and Earth.

Lee County Sheriff Tracks Thief with Helo's and FLIR

The "Bear in the Air" Has Teeth

It can be tough to identify and track people with bad intentions at ground level, but a little elevation and FLIR technologies can be awesome aids in the process. That's why the Lee County Sheriff has established an exceedingly capable aviation unit with helicopters, drones and staff trained to use them to protect the County. On September 25, 2020 the Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary at the Pier 41 Marine boat dealership in Fort Myers located at 15820 South Tamiami Trail. Their Aviation Unit used state of the art FLIR camera technology (probably from their H-125) and observed the suspect, later identified as Humberto Diaz (DOB 07/04/1966).
