STEREO

abbrev. for Solar/Terrestrial Relations Observatory. A NASA mission for the agency's Office of Space Science Solar Terrestrial Probes Program that is set to provide revolutionary views of the Sun–Earth system and in particular solar eruptions and their effects on the Earth. The mission is due for launch in July 2006 aboard a Delta 2 7925 rocket from Cape Canaveral. The STEREO mission is set to accomplish its task by imaging coronal mass ejections (see coronal transients) and background events simultaneously from two spaceborne observatories. The twin spacecraft are to be placed into solar orbit, one ahead of the Earth, the other behind it. The configuration should allow the observatories to obtain stereoscopic, or 3-D, images of the phenomena concerned.
