APL spacecraft capture a solar storm in
The APL-built and -operated twin STEREO observatories
have made the first 3-D
measurements of solar explosions, known as coronal mass
ejections, enabling scientists to see their

Scientists will be able to use this information to help
determine how these strong solar storms will
impact Earth's atmosphere.
