Sun Study

Twin spacecraft, known as STEREO, for Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory, blasted off Wednesday night on a mission to study huge eruptions from the sun that can damage satellites and disrupt electrical and communications systems on Earth.

Good thing NASA is planning a night landing too. ;-)

Wouldn't it be ironic if huge eruptions from the sun damaged this STEREO satellite?
