Without the Sun, there would be no life on the surface of Earth. This program provides a comprehensive update on the amazing discoveries of the past decade, during which NASA spacecraft have returned astonishingly detailed views of the only star we can see... "in close up." But our Sun helps us understand all the other stars out there in the Universe beyond our solar system. In addition to seeing the Sun in close-up, viewers will go behind the scenes at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD-Sun Central/Mission Control for many of America's solar spacecraft, and Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory, Palo Alto, CA where some of the most powerful telescopes on board recent spacecraft have been built and tested.
