With a triad of instruments, SDO captures an image of the Sun every 0.75 seconds.More news: CDC adds three new COVID-19 symptoms
Till the end of the decade, SDO had utilised total of 20 million GB of space to capture 435 million high resolution images of the Sun.
The time lapse footage is believed to hold much value for the scientists who are interested in knowing about the functioning of the Sun and rise and fall in its activity during its 11 year solar cycle. The video might also offer other insights about the closest star and its influence over the solar system. It accomplishes these tasks by determining how the Sun's magnetic field is generated, and how this stored magnetic energy is converted and released into the heliosphere and geospace in the form of solar wind, energetic particles, and aberrations in the solar irradiance.
The images captured by the SDO are formed by capturing a specific ultraviolet wavelength to let scientists watch the sun's outermost layer, the corona.More news: US COVID-19 Cases Crosses 2.5 Million
The music in the video has been composed by German musician Lars Leonhard.
While an instrument failure resulted in a longer blackout in 2016.
Launched on February 11, 2010 from Cape Canaveral, SDO's mission is to study how solar activity is created and how Space Weather is spawned out of that intense activity that disrupt's Earth's technology systems and communications networks. Occasional frames where the Sun disappears entirely or appears off center represent periods during which the probe was forced to take a quick break from stargazing in order to re calibrate its delicate instruments.More news: India's Davis Cup Tie against Finland Postponed to 2021 Due to Coronavirus
