So it's fingers crossed for the Solar Dynamics Observatory, destined to help the predictions of "space weather".
SDO promises to become an exciting mission as an orbiting solar observatory with multiple high-definition telescopes has never been attempted before… cool.gif

The prelaunch readiness press conference will be held at 1 p.m. EST, on Monday, 8th February 2010 from the Kennedy Space Center News Center. It will be immediately followed by the SDO science briefing, both briefings will be
broadcast live on NASA Television. Launch is set for 9th February 2010 (10:30 – 11:30 a.m. EST).

(interesting to see something apparently flying splat into the Sun on 10 Apr - I assume this has been discussed elsewhere)

Comet Eaten By the Sun As Spacecraft Watches

Not so rare an event it seems. From 2006: Comet Plunges into the Sun
