A remarkable story of anticipation, drama, and discovery began with the launch of NASA's Solar Maximum Mission in 1980: anticipation of results from the powerful new instruments on board; drama from the early failure of crucial components which culminated in the first in-orbit repair of a NASA satellite by shuttle astronauts, and discoveries, both anticipated and serendipitous, which form the essence of this book.
"The many faces of the sun" should prove to be a useful tool for both teaching and research, as well as an effective guide for planners of future missions to investigate the sun.
