RBSPM @ APL

The pair of Radiation Belt Storm Probes Mission satellites were built by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, MD. They are the 65th and 66th spacecraft built and launched by APL since 1961.  I didn't know they had built that many. Very cool. Their RBSPM site has everything you'd ever want to know about the mission.
