Some Links with Relevant Information
Via thw www you can get the actual
view of the sun in all wavelength regions.
Links to some overview information sites:
- An easy to understand overview on Heliospheric Physics has been published
recently as Heliospheric Learning
Center in connection with the Advanced
Composition Explorer (ACE) Program.
- A nice compilation on the Heliosphere is also found on a www
site by Steve Suess.
- One of the last frontiers in the Heliosphere, the sun's corona and the
origin of the solar wind, will be approached by the Solar
Probe that is planned within NASA's new line of deep space probes.
- With measurements inside the heliosphere we also get access to information
about the neighboring interstellar
medium. Pickup ion measurements as depicted in an animation
of the "Giant Swing" of the interstellar gas have led the way.
You can find NASA Space Science News
and Space Weather related News Items from
NASA websites as they pop up. A similar site exists for ESA.
