NASA’s STEREO Project Reveals the Entire Sun for the First Time

For the first time in history, we can see the entire sun. NASA launched two satellites in 2006 in order to capture a complete view of the sun. The satellites reached their final destination yesterday, giving NASA a complete view of the sun for the first time.

From NASA:

Launched in October 2006, STEREO traces the flow of energy and matter from the sun to Earth. It also provides unique and revolutionary views of the sun-Earth system. STEREO has given us the first view of the entire sun on February 6, 2011 and when coupled with SDO, will give us complete views of the sun’s entire surface and atmosphere for the next 8 years.

Here is a video from NASA about the STEREO project.
