In November 2015, a new Solar Irradiance Climate Data Record (CDR) consisting of total and spectral solar irradiance and their associated time- and wavelength-dependent uncertainties was presented to the public. The 400+ year climate data record extends from 1610 […](Read more»)
The last few months have been challenging for the SORCE Mission Operations team as they work to bring SORCE science measurements back to life. Their hard work has paid off and in recognition for everything they have done, from creative problem solving to extraordinary long hours, Tom Woods (SORCE Principal Investigator) and Bill Possel (LASP […](Read more»)
Great news! SORCE successfully transitioned to a new “hybrid” operating mode on Monday, Feb. 24th. The hybrid mode allows SORCE to take solar measurements again after an approximate 6-month break. After months of development and planning, the new version of flight software making this all possible was uploaded to the spacecraft on Friday, Feb. 21st […](Read more»)

With the loss of another battery cell, SORCE is now operating in a new configuration. While we are working ultimately towards recovering back to normal operations with daily solar irradiance measurements, our current focus is preparing the spacecraft to support a campaign mode to assure overlapping measurements between SORCE and TCTE in December 2013. There […](Read more»)
