NASA has released the first photos to the public on what the Solar Dynamic Observatory can really do. This spacecraft is showing the Sun as never before seen.
The Sun is in IMAX quality with these images and NASA is highly pleased.
Launched on February 11th from Cape Canaveral, the observatory has spent the past two months moving into a geosynchronous orbit and activating its instruments. As soon as SDO’s telescope doors opened, the spacecraft began beaming back scenes so beautiful and puzzlingly complex that even seasoned observers were stunned.
NASA is calling the new project the “Hubble for the Sun”, in which the high resolution images of the sun will match that of the Hubble Space Telescope’s glory.
Images of Spaceweather will never be the same again.
