The first lecture in the 2011 Exploring Space Lecture Series featured Dean Pesnell, Project Scientist for the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). SDO is designed to help us better understand how the Sun works and how it influences our lives. From the very start of its mission, SDO revealed incredible views of erupting prominences and flares with amazing clarity. Learn how SDO will change how we see the Sun inside and out!

Presented as a live webcast on Thursday, March 24, 2011 at 8pm ET at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.
