Radiation Belts Data Visualization

Using telemetry logged by Progeny Mk6-II flights over Kerbin from both the day and night side we can finally generate an approximation of what the inner and out radiation belts look like. The dayside data is very rough, logged at 1min intervals the entire flight as opposed to the nightside flight that switched to 1s intervals inside the belts. Still, you can make out the stretching of the belts due to the kerbolar wind as expected
