Day 42: The 23 Degrees Team Buzz of the Week
d ~ 108'057'600 km in Earth's orbit
We are 42 days into our journey around the Sun and already so much has taken place. Every step of the way the 23 Degrees team will be charting the progress of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. We orbit inside the atmosphere of the Sun so the impact of space weather on our planet is also of particular interest to us. As part of the process we will be providing regular roundups on the conversations on the blogosphere, YouTube and Twitter. What have you been talking about this week?
For us the top story this week has been the three dimensional images captured by NASA's Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) satellites giving us a full 360 view of the Sun. This new 3 dimensional view will be of huge significance to scientists' better understanding of solar physics and therefore improve space weather forecasting.
What has made an impact on you this week?
