Summary
Abstract: [Source: NASA/GSFC Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) home page, http://stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ]

STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) is the third mission in NASA's Solar Terrestrial Probes program (STP). This two-year mission will employ two nearly identical space-based observatories - one ahead of Earth in its orbit, the other trailing behind - to provide the first-ever stereoscopic measurements to study the Sun and the nature of its coronal mass ejections, or CMEs.
STEREO's scientific objectives are to:

- Understand the causes and mechanisms of coronal mass ejection (CME) initiation.
- Characterize the propagation of CMEs through the heliosphere.
- Discover the mechanisms and sites of energetic particle acceleration in the low corona and the interplanetary medium.
- Improve the determination of the structure of the ambient solar wind.

Description: Access the STEREO Science Center (SSC). SSC serves the following functions:

1. Archive for STEREO telemetry, mission support data, and higher level instrument data and analysis software.
2. Processing center for STEREO space weather beacon data.
3. Focal point for science coordination.
4. Focal point for education and public outreach activities.
