SDO Spacecraft Will Bring the Sun Closer to Earth

The SDO craft will bring images of the sun to Earth with 10 times more detail than HDTV. 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.
