Olle Norberg was honored for his presentation of “The Astrid Microsatellite Mission—An Attempt at Energetic Neutral Atom Imaging.” Norberg received a M.Sc. (1988) in engineering physics from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in space plasma physics at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Kiruna, Sweden, where he is a research assistant. His research interests include the study of magnetospheric plasmas, and space plasma instrumentation. He has been studying the hot plasma data from the Phobos-2 Mars mission and the Freja mission. Norberg was a principal investigator on the Swedish Astrid-1 mission, launched in January 1995 to study neutral atoms generated in the ring current.
