IPEX’s mission has ended

IPEX was launched December 6th, 2013. The last transmission heard from it was on January 30th, 2015. IPEX completed its mission, autonomous image processing and data reduction, fairly early after launch. During the remainder of its functional life, it continued to transmit down health data. With nearly a years worth of health files, the team has been able to observe how the electronics behave in harsh environments. We have learned a great deal from IPEX.

Thank you IPEX for over a year of service! Orbit in Peace.
