    The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) is a spacecraft that was launched in December 1995 to study the sun...

    I'd say "that's cool", but the sun is rarely cool.

    By the way, that image you attached looks to me like a Rorschach (inkblot) test! And what do I see in that solar image? The first thing that came to mind is a baby in utero.
