Small Explorer Mission Celebrates Ten Years

A combined movie from RHESSI and the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer, or TRACE mission. TRACE shows the solar surface, while RHESSI data dances over it: red contour lines show soft X-ray sources, and blue lines show hard X-ray sources. Together such information has helped show how and where particles move around during solar eruptions. Credit: NASA/GSFC/Scientific Visualization Studio
