Wow, they kept it down to the wire!

This is really amazing work that will lead to incredible new understanding about Helioterrestrial dynamics! We are truly privileged to witness the leading edge of this knowledge.

From the NOAA’s ENLIL models to SDO’s historic imagery and now the ATREX mission, we’re the first humans to have the chance to truly grasp how deeply and fundamentally Sol affects our planet.

It’s taken us over half of a million years to get to this point.

Godspeed, Wallops!
