Transcript of Our Solar System 03: Physical Properties of our Sun

Soho Space Mission The SOHO, the Solar & Heliospheric, observartory was launched on December 2, 1995. It was launched to study from into the core, to the outer corona, and even the solar winds around. It was a collaberation project between ESA and NASA. The tweleve intraments that were brought aboard the SOHO were provided by both American and European scientists. The image (shown before) is from a LASCO C2 and an EIT 304 Angstrom, combind together to give a bigger effect. It was taken on Janurary 8, 2002 and shows more than a billion tons of matter blasting from the sun at millions of kilometers per hour. Stereo Space Mission STEREO stands for Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory. This is the third mission of NASA's Solar Terrestrial Probes program. STEREO was launched in October of 2006. The observatory has given great details and views of the Sun-Earth system which have turned out revolutionary. It has traced the flowing energy and matter between the Earth and Sun. STEREO has provided us with 3D structures of solar flares and major eruptions, giving us further information on why these things occur. It has a unique side-viewing perspective that can provide us with more accurate information on when solar eruptions are directed towards Earth. http://www.hawastsoc.org/solar/raw/Sun/xSun.gif Ace Space Mission Ace was launched on August 25, 1997 and is still operating today. "Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) observers particles of solar, interplanetary, interstellar, and galactic orgins, spanning the energy range from solar wind ions to galactic cosmic ray nuclei." The major objective for ACE is to collect, measure, and compare samples of matter from the solar corona, solar wind, and other particle populations and galactic matter. Studying this data and learning more of the particles will give more understanding to the formation of the solar system and the evolution of our solar system. ACE collects data by carrying six HD sensors and three monitoring instruments. It can withstand through major events, even solar flares collecting large and small particles.
