This week, NASA is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a sensitive spacecraft that has shown the world never-before-seen imagery of the sun. 

The mission launched on Feb. 11, 2010, and during the spacecraft’s first decade in orbit, it has viewed planets crossing in front of the sun, studied the activity of sun’s scorching outer atmosphere (known as the corona) and witnessed nearly an entire 11-year solar cycle.
