Mission-Saving NASA Instrument Secures New Flight Opportunity; Slated for Significant Upgrade

The miniaturized fluxgate magnetometer, developed by instrument engineer Todd Bonalsky at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, proved that scientists could reduce the size of these powerful instruments and gather scientifically useful magnetic-field measurements from small platforms sometimes no larger than a shoebox.
