ISEE-3 Becomes A Spacecraft For All In Today's Lunar Flyby, io9

"Our plucky crowdfunded spacecraft has been getting into all sorts of productive mischief, from detecting a solar burst to worming its way into Google Chrome's interactive heart. Today ISEE-3 will be making its closest approach to the moon, and you can watch live with commentary from the project experts."

ISEE-3 Spacecraft Moon Data To Be Given To The Public, IBT

"ISEE-3, the 36-year-old spacecraft retired by Nasa and reactivated by a private group of scientists and engineers, will make a swing past the moon on Sunday as part of its long journey around the sun. It will be another 15 years before ISEE-3 gets this close to Earth again. During the lunar flyby, which will occur on August 10 at 11:16am PDT (3.16pm GMT), members of the ISEE-3 Reboot Project will begin collecting scientific data from the spacecraft's instruments and make it available to the public."

Crowd-funded ISEE-3 reboot mission to begin Sunday after lunar flyby, Ars Technica

"A vintage NASA satellite will fly past our moon Sunday before embarking on a unique citizen science mission. The International Sun-Earth Explorer 3 (ISEE-3) will have the closest view of the moon at 11:16 a.m. PDT. Members of the rebooted mission partnered with Google to create a website, where they will host a video hangout beginning at 10:30 a.m. PDT. The website, which launched on Friday, will play a greater role in the future as a source to view data from the ISEE-3 as it orbits the sun."
