The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), Forecasting Space Weather for Over 25 Years

Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), Image/NASA With recent sun related coronal mass ejections (CME) resulting in space and aviation communications and power grid disruptions here on earth, interest in this phenomenon has ultimately, burgeoned. Launched on December 2, 1995, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), a joint mission between the European Space Agency and NASA, has been instrumental in detecting eruptions…
