IRF scientists Stephan Buchert and Anders Eriksson reported on Monday 2 December from ESOC in Darmstadt, "We have now verified that all our three Langmuir probe units on the Swarm satellites are alive in space! We have only seen housekeeping data so far, which means instrument status and some few samples of probe currents. As far as we can see, everything looks as it should. Real science data will be coming in tomorrow (Tuesday 3 December) and Wednesday."
