Is EVE Offline? (Extreme ultraviolet Variability Experiment)
I frequently check the SDO and other solar image data sites like SOHO. What with all the X Class happenings one would want to keep up with the latest
EVE data, but there is
no latest EVE data.
Here's an example of a typical EVE image: The M1.7 flare from 5/20/13 (bottom right corner of photo):
Latest solarham.com images show no data from EVE.
And their data site is non responsive:
Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE) 
Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment
The Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE), will measure the Sun's extreme ultraviolet irradiance with improved spectral resolution,
"temporal cadence", accuracy, and precision over preceding measurements made by TIMED SEE, SOHO, and SORCE XPS. The instrument incorporates
physics-based models in order to further scientific understanding of the relationship between solar EUV variations and magnetic variation changes in
The Sun's output of energetic extreme ultraviolet photons is primarily what heats the Earth's upper atmosphere and creates the ionosphere. Solar EUV
radiation output undergoes constant changes, both moment to moment and over the Sun's 11-year solar cycle, and these changes are important to
understand because they have a significant impact on atmospheric heating, satellite drag, and communications system degradation, including disruption
of the Global Positioning System.
The EVE instrument package was built by the University of Colorado at Boulder's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, with Dr. Tom Woods as
Principal Investigator, and was delivered to Goddard Space Flight Center on September 7, 2007. The instrument provides improvements of up to 70
percent in spectral resolution measurements in the wavelengths below 30 nm, and a 30 percent improvement in "time cadence" by taking measurements
every 10 seconds over a 100 percent duty cycle.
