Spacecraft to make 3D videos of the Sun

Posted on Sunday, October 29 2006 @ 05:16:00 CET by

NASA is going to launch two spacecraft that will create the first 3D movies of the Sun:
The Stereo mission will study huge eruptions from our parent star known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs).

These colossal clouds of energetic particles can "fry" the electronics of satellites in Earth orbit and disrupt electricity distribution grids.

Stereo is expected to improve the ability of researchers to forecast the worst aspects of this "space weather".

"Coronal mass ejections are a main thrust of solar physics today," said Mike Kaiser, the Stereo project scientist at the US space agency's (Nasa) Goddard Space Flight Center.
