NASA’s SDO Captures its 100 Millionth Image of the Sun

An instrument on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured its 100 millionth image of the sun. The instrument is the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly, or AIA, which uses four telescopes working parallel to gather eight images of the sun—cycling through 10 different wavelengths—every 12 seconds. This is a processed image of SDO multiwavelength blend from Jan. 19, 2015, the date of the spacecraft’s 100th millionth image release.

Between the AIA and two other instruments on board, the Helioseismic Magnetic Imager and the Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment, SDO sends down a whopping 1.5 terabytes of data a day. In the almost five years since its launch on Feb. 11, 2010, SDO has provided images of the sun to help scientists better understand how the roiling corona gets to temperatures some 1000 times hotter than the sun’s surface, what causes giant eruptions such as solar flares, and why the sun’s magnetic fields are constantly on the move.

Because nothing feeds the hungry or takes care of the sick like spending 1.1 million dollars building a 198 foot steel cross. 

The Cross Foundation completed a 198 foot Cross at the intersection of Interstates 57 & 70 in Effingham, Illinois.  The site is intended to serve as a beacon of hope to the 50,000 travelers estimated to pass the site each day.  The Cross Foundation is dedicated to building both faith and family on an ecumenical basis.

For that last photo - the US government will spend $3.9 trillion in 2015. That means the government spends $1.1 million in less than 9 seconds, and does so all year, constantly.
Two-thirds of that $3.9 trillion is for transfers, to help the old, the needy, the ill and all the rest.
Only after all that, did private individuals chose to spend $1.1 million of their own money, above and beyond what the federal government takes from each of us.
