James Van Allen was an American space scientist at the University of Iowa. He was instrumental in establishing the field of magnetospheric research in space. When the University of Iowa Library came into possession of the original tapes containing his research, they wanted to digitize them to preserve the information. We helped them create a microsite that tells Dr. Van Allen’s story and has the data available to the public.
