Spacecraft Track Solar Storms From Sun To Earth

August 23, 2011

NASA’s STEREO spacecraft and new data processing techniques have succeeded in tracking space weather events from their origin in the Sun’s ultrahot corona to impact with the Earth 96 million miles away, resolving a 40-year mystery about the structure of the structures that cause space weather: how the structures that impact the Earth relate to the corresponding structures in the solar corona. credit: NASA
