Follow-up Inspection on Characterization Wells at Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Cibola Flight Experiment (CFE) is an experimental small satellite that was designed to prove that off-the-shelf computer processors can be used for supercomputing in space. The processors, also called field-programmable gate arrays, can be reconfigured while the satellite is in orbit, enabling researchers to modify them for a variety of tasks like studying lightning, disturbances in the ionosphere, and radio-frequency sources.
 
The CFE satellite was launched on March 8, 2007, in low-earth orbit, and has operated successfully since its deployment. In this 2006 photo, Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Daniel Seitz works on preparing the CFE satellite. | Photo by LeRoy Sanchez, Los Alamos National Laboratory.
