About this book

The STEREO mission uses twin heliospheric orbiters to track solar disturbances from their  initiation to 1 AU. This book documents the mission, its objectives, the spacecraft that execute it  and the instruments that provide the measurements, both remote sensing and in situ. This  mission promises to unlock many of the mysteries of how the Sun produces what has become to  be known as space weather.
