To help us learn more about our Sun, space agencies in the United States and Europe worked together to send an unmanned spacecraft into orbit beyond our atmosphere. The craft’s special telescope can photograph a wavelength of light that’s blocked by our atmosphere, giving us a close-up image like this one.
Every day, the Sun is a star player in our lives. From 93 million miles away, its energy gives us light, warmth, and food.
