Quiz: Test Your Knowledge About The Ionospheric Connection Explorer ICON Satellite

Let’s start the quiz

The American Space Research Organization 'NASA' has launched a satellite called 'ICON' to explore the mysterious, dynamic region of the "Ionosphere" which is the meeting point of air and space. This refrigerator-shaped satellite will study the optical components of air produced by gases present in the ionosphere and will also measure the charged atmosphere around the spacecraft, which is 580 kilometers above the Earth's surface. This satellite will help determine the physics of Earth's space environment and will also pave the way to reduce its effects on our technology, communication systems, and society. The study of the ionosphere will help to find out how the upper atmosphere reacts to geomagnetic storms, which is a problem for the Earth's magnetic field due to solar activity. Take This Trivia Quiz About The Ionospheric Connection Explorer ICON Satellite.
