July 25, 2003
The days and months have flown by since SORCE was launched January 25th. We certainly have something to celebrate and be proud of! This is a great achievement and everyone is looking forward to a very long and scientifically rewarding mission.
The SORCE team is very pleased with SORCE’s progress to date and they are delighted to be on the way to meeting the mission long-term science objectives. These objectives are: 1) to extend the current 24-year record of TSI measurements, 2) to establish a data set of SSI with daily measurements over the wavelength (color) range from 1 nm to 2000 nm, and 3) to improve our understanding of the Sun’s variability and its effect on our atmosphere and climate.
