NASA - IBEX Launch and Deployment Animation
October 3, 2008

The IBEX team designed a groundbreaking concept for placing a spacecraft into high-altitude orbit using a Pegasus rocket. Pegasus will deliver IBEX to an altitude of about 120 miles. IBEX will use its internal hydrazine system over several orbits to raise its apogee to 200,000 miles and its perigee to about 4,400 miles above the Earth.
