Description

 The STEREO mission, launched in 2006, consists of two identical spacecraft with EUV and white-light imagers that circle around the Sun in opposite direction and provide us for the first time a true stereoscopic view of solar flares and coronal mass ejections. We show some scientific highlights of this mission, including 3D reconstructions of the coronal plasma in active regions, eruptive flares, and mass ejections that propagate through the heliosphere.
