Space telescope STEREO watches our Sun

Historian: Our Sun is our ultimate source of energy. Its health effects all life on Earth. When our Sun belches a bunch of its coronal mass (a coronal mass ejection CME) as we see in the image above, this can cause disturbances in, and even fry, much of our electric infrastructure. So, it is a good idea for us to keep a close watch.

Physicist: STEREO (Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory), one of NASA's missions watching our Sun, is celebrating a tenth anniversary by giving us some nice videos which we link to below. We also take this opportunity to link to related NASA sites. There is much to explore via all these links.
