NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO) has been studying the sun since 2010, generating about 1.5 terabytes of data every day. The goal of the mission is to understand how the Sun's powerful magnetic field is generated, maintained, and how the stored magnetic energy is converted into solar winds and other high-energy particles that influence the rest of the solar system, including Earth.
