Re: alternatives & SOHO
- One of the cameras on Soho is facing the wrong way. Its facing to the left of the sun. You
can't see the sun but you can see a bunch of stars and the light coming from the sun to
right. I don't know which camera it is.
It was a comet!!! I could only see this on the LASCO instrument because most of the Soho
shots are so close to the sun you can't see anything. I thought it was a cosmic ray...

Recovery from ESR has been postponed until tomorrow.
SOHO entered ESR (safe) mode at 07:27 UT. The ESR was tiggered by another spurious
FSPAAD (Fine Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Detector) anomaly. Recovery is in progress.

- As you've found, SOHO has had experienced two ESR (Emergency Sun
Reacquisition) events. At this time, there isn't any scientific data
being returned from SOHO.

state of affairs is the best way, or that it can't be improved upon.
The technologies you've mentioned are all potentially viable
alternatives. In time, I have no doubt they will come into wider use.
However, it will take time, and during that time, oil is still the
fuel that drives the machines of industry, manufacturing, and
