  • Radiation detectors and the radio-telemetry system for Pioneer III observations of the Earth's radiation belt are described. Information is given on the vehicle and its trajectory, and logs of flight and telemetry. Observation data and analysis of the data are presented under the following topics: intensity- structure of the region of trapped radiation; effective radial extent of the geomagnetic field; interplanetary value of cosmic-ray intensity; fluctuations in counting rate beyond 10 earth… CONTINUE READING
