SORCE Continues to Make Excellent Progress
As the mission heads into its ninth month, scientists are thrilled with SORCE’s progress. The instruments continue to make excellent solar and stellar observations. Since SORCE first launched, the entire SORCE science team has met weekly to review the instrument status, spacecraft status, ground contacts, spacecraft and instrument planning, and data processing. In addition, many smaller meetings are held during the week to focus on individual instruments and the science data produced. These meetings are becoming more exciting as the instrument calibration and data processing efforts are fine-tuned.
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.
