The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) is a Small Explorer (SMEX) mission selected by NASA in January 2005 for development and flight. IBEX will provide the first global views of the Sun’s interstellar boundaries; unveiling the physics of the heliosphere’s interstellar interaction; providing a deeper understanding of the heliosphere and thereby astrospheres throughout the galaxy; and creating the opportunity to make even greater unanticipated discoveries.
