SORCE Celebrates 15 Years!

January 31

We are thrilled to be celebrating the 15-year anniversary of the Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment. On January 25, 2003, the spacecraft was delivered into low Earth orbit on a Pegasus XL launch vehicle. This NASA satellite is carrying four instruments developed and built by LASP – TIM, SIM, SOLSTICE, and XPS. The primary objective […]

TSIS-1 Launches

December 17, 2017

After years in the making (almost 2 decades!), the Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor (TSIS-1) launched on Dec. 15, 2017 onboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. It was a beautiful site from Kennedy Space Center! The Dragon capsule with all of the precious cargo arrived to the International Space Station (ISS) on Sunday, Dec. […]

Total Solar Eclipse: August 21

August 31, 2017

Although SORCE was quiet through the August 21st solar eclipse, the SORCE scientists totally enjoyed the Sun’s magnificent show! Without a coronagraph for solar eclipse observations, SORCE solar measurements do not include images, just radiometric and spectral irradiance values of the Sun. As always, our vigilant mission operations team was on the alert to make […]

SIST Meeting in May 2017

June 15, 2017

SORCE scientists and collaborators participated in a 2nd SIST Workshop for the NASA program called: Solar Irradiance Science Team (SIST). The primary purpose of the SIST research projects is to support the development of space-based data sets of total and spectral solar irradiance (TSI and SSI). The data sets will be used as input to […]

SIM Releases Version 23

April 1, 2017

SIM Version 23 (V23) was introduced on May 2, 2017. Below are the release notes for V23, Level 3 data product. SORCE SIM V23 employs the same correction methodology as employed in V22 but now includes a revision in the exposure time record bringing the exposure record up-to-date rather than extrapolating the exposure and increases […]
