Solar Dynamics Observatory

“The Solar Dynamics Observatory is the first mission to be launched for NASA’s Living With a Star (LWS) Program, a program designed to understand the causes of solar variability and its impacts on Earth. SDO is designed to help us understand the Sun’s influence on Earth and Near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously.”

When the movies from SDO first came out in mid April, I showed them to my classes. They are amazing, and the videos of the solar activity goes really well with APtBS selections as a soundtrack.
