IBEX Lands in Hawaii and Lifts Off Without a Whisper

I blogged that the IBEX would be landing in Hawaii soon almost a month ago here.

Well the IBEX has came and gone and not much was said about it.

So I’ll just copy and paste this story about it:

After mating to the Orbital Sciences L-1011 carrier aircraft on Oct. 6, the aircraft carrying the Pegasus XL rocket with IBEX departed Vandenberg Air Force Base Oct. 11.

After an overnight stop at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii, the ferry flight continued and arrived at the Reagan Test Site at Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific Oct. 12. The following day, an IBEX spacecraft state of health check was performed without problems.
