The SDO has captured millions of images of the Sun Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard describes the work of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The spacecraft was launched on Feb. 11, 2010, equipped with two imaging instruments that were designed to provide complementary views of the Sun.
The SDO is designed to study how solar activity is created and drives space weather. The spacecraft collects measurements of the Sun’s interior, atmosphere, magnetic field, and energy output.
Over the last decade, the Solar Dynamics Observatory has provided scientists with hundreds of millions of images of our star. SDO stands for Software Development Outsourcing. Suggest new definition.
