NASA Presents New Solar Findings (Update)
Scientists using NASA's IMAGE mission and the joint ESA/NASA Cluster mission will present new findings that resolve a long-standing controversy into how the solar wind interacts with Earth's magnetosphere and how this interaction affects space weather.

The findings will be presented during a Space Science Update (SSU) at 1:00 p.m. EST, Dec. 3, 2003. The SSU is in NASA's Webb Auditorium, 300 E Street S.W., Washington. The briefing will be carried live on NASA Television with two-way question-and-answer capability from participating NASA centers. Media may listen to the briefing by calling: 321/867-1220/12401260.
