SOHO and friends


Daniel here, I'm going to tell you all about an important spacecraft called SOHO, which I use to study the Sun. My friends will also tell you about some other solar spacecraft: YOHKOH, TRACE and ULYSSES.

For the latest news on SOHO visit our iSun|trek website.

We are using instruments on board SOHO to find out:

what the inside of the Sun (the solar interior) is like

how the Sun's outer atmosphere (the corona) is heated

how material flows out from the Sun (the solar wind)

SOHO is operated from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) close to Washington DC, the capital of the USA.
