First Panoramic View Of The Sun Beamed Down By Nasa Spacecraft


www.guardian.co.uk

Scientists have seen their first panoramic view of the sun, in photographs beamed down by twin spacecraft that faced each other across our nearest star and took snapshots of its surface.

The images from Nasa's $500m Stereo mission will be used to create a three-dimensional map of the sun in an attempt to understand its innermost workings.

Its official - The sun is a sphere!

There is a beautiful video at the NASA Link!

Today, images from $500m Stereo mission give all-round view of the sun – to help scientists better understand its properties; on February 6, the two STEREO spacecrafts will be 180 degrees apart and for the next 8 years the STEREO spacecrafts and SDO will be able to observe the entire 360 degrees of the Sun.

Scientists hope the images will help them better understand the particles the sun blasts towards the Earth.

This is disappointing. I was expecting to see the dark side of the sun revealed. Where are the pix of the dark side? Maybe there are hidden alien bases there! I call disinfo!
