02.09.10 - SDO is set to relay tons of data about the Sun and its affect on the Earth.
09.22.09 - To monitor energetic solar photons, NASA is going to launch a sensor named "EVE," short for EUV Variability Experiment, onboard SDO this winter.
07.10.09 - NASA's upcoming mission to study the sun in unprecedented detail and its effects on Earth, the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla. on July 9.
04.28.09 - For three days, SDO sat on a slowly spinning "Miller Table" in the Spacecraft Checkout and Integration Area, a "clean room" at Goddard.
The identical TWINS-A and TWINS-B observatories provide a new capability for stereoscopically imaging the magnetosphere.
The twin spacecraft Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 were re-designated in 1990 as the Voyager Interstellar Mission (VIM), to observe the edge of the solar system and interstellar space.
Wind's mission is to measure crucial properties of the solar wind before it impacts the Earth's magnetic field and alters the Earth's space environment and upper atmosphere in a direct manner.
RHESSI's mission is to explore the basic physics of particle acceleration and energy release in solar flares.
TIMED explores the Earth's Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere (60-180 kilometers up), the least explored and understood region of our atmosphere.
The Cluster mission is an in-situ investigation of the Earth's magnetosphere using four identical spacecraft simultaneously.
ACE's mission observes particles of solar, interplanetary, interstellar, and galactic origins, spanning the energy range from solar wind ions to galactic cosmic ray nuclei.
The Geotail mission's primary objective is to study the dynamics of the Earth's magnetotail over a wide range of distance, extending from the near-Earth region to the distant tail.
SoHO's mission is to study the Sun, from its deep core to the outer corona, and the solar wind.
Solar Dynamics Observatory's (SDO) mission is to understand the Sun's influence on Earth and Near-Earth space by observing the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously.
IBEX is the first mission designed to detect the edge of the Solar System.
