IMPACT Principal Investigator Janet Luhmann presents the STEREO mission and IMPACT objectives to David Glaser's Solar Campers at Space Sciences Laboratory in Berkeley.
Key Questions: How and why does the vary? How do the Earth and the planets respond?
Students with STEREO Glasses capture the 3-D image of the . Coronal Mass Ejections - what are they? CMEs are the most energetic eruptions on the . CMEs are the primary cause of geomagnetic storms.
Dr. Janet Luhmann explains how different instruments will study the in 3-D. Question: Why do we need 3-D images of the Sun? Answer: CME's that are directed toward Earth can be detected. This will help forecast magnetic storms that are coming toward us.
