(OGO-D)
will
be
launched
into
a
nearly
polar
orbit
bythe
National
Aero-nauticsand

Administration
from
the
Western
Test Range
in
California,
no
earlier

The)GO-D
spacecraft
willstudy
the
relationship
between
our
Sun
and
the
nature
of
the
Earth's
environment
during
a
period
of
Increasedsolaractivity.
Particular
emphasis
will
be
placed
on
the
interrelation-
ships
between
particle
activity,auroraand airglow,
the
geomagnetic
field,
the
neutral
and
ionized
c:omposition
of
the
atmosphere,
and
the
electromagneticenergysources
contributing
to
ionization
and
atmospheric
heating.OGO-D's

providescientific
data
over
the
polar
regions
where
the
Earth'smag-netic
fleldlines
extend
to
greatdistances
from
the
Earth,
ard
where
special
phenomena
such
as
auroras
and
low

andcosmic

can
be
observed.
