Wikipedia

  1. TWINS

    Two Wide-Angle Imaging Neutral-Atom Spectrometers (TWINS) are a pair of NASA instruments aboard two United States National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) satellites in Molniya orbits. TWINS was designed to provide stereo images of the Earth's ring current. The first instrument, TWINS-1, was launched aboard USA-184 on 28 June 2006. TWINS-2 followed aboard USA-200 on 13 March 2008. Each instrument consists of an energetic neutral atom imager and a Lyman alpha detector. The ENA imager provides indirect remote sensing of the ring current ions, and the Lyman alpha detector gives a measure of the neutral hydrogen cloud about the Earth, known as the geocorona. The TWINS prime mission lasted two years, from 2008 to 2010, and has been followed by an extended mission which is ongoing.

    Twins are two offspring produced by the same pregnancy, often born at roughly the same time. They can either be identical (monozygotic), meaning that they develop from a single fertilized egg splitting into two embryos, or they can be non-identical or fraternal (dizygotic), meaning they develop from two different eggs, each fertilized by separate sperm cells.

    Twins are a Hong Kong-based female Cantopop duo which was created in the summer of 2001 by Emperor Entertainment Group. Twins are made up of two girls, Charlene Choi Cheuk-Yin and Gillian Chung Yan-Tung. They were a popular group in Hong Kong and a top band in China. Their fanbase have included Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, United States and Philippines. Their music was generally targeted at young teens, but in 2004 they began to attract a wider audience by venturing into different styles of music. In July 2008 the duo announced their split after the Edison Chen photo scandal involving Gillian Chung. After two years the group finally reunited in 2010.
