Wind is a spin stabilized spacecraft launched in November 1, 1994 and placed in a halo orbit around the L1 Lagrange point, more than 200 Re upstream of Earth to observe the unperturbed solar wind that is about to impact the magnetosphere of Earth. Wind, together with Geotail, Polar, SoHO and Cluster, constitute a cooperative scientific satellite project designated the International Solar Terrestrial Physics (ISTP) program that aims at gaining improved understanding of the physics of solar terrestrial relations.
