Farewell space probe Ulysses

After 18 years and nearly three complete orbits around the sun, Ulysses, the interplanetary space probe that provided scientists with a more complete understanding of the solar wind and the solar activity cycle, was turned off. Nathan Schwadron, an associate professor of astronomy, can discuss the space probe’s solar wind observations, which led scientists to write two books and more than 1,000 articles.
