SORCE Making Excellent Daily Solar Observations
Science is the word of the day. Operating in normal mode, SORCE instruments are making excellent daily solar observations, with nightly stellar observations for calibration. As the quality and quantity of solar data continues to expand, the scientists and engineers concentrate on verifying the instrument calibrations and data processing software. New experiment commands are up-loaded daily to the spacecraft.
Data are being distributed to the science community through the Goddard Space Flight Center DAAC. For additional information on obtaining SORCE data from the DAAC and reading the SORCE HDF data files, see the data access page.
