In the final article, a virtual solar-terrestrial observatory uses the semantic web to provide access to observational data sets from fields spanning upper atmospheric terrestrial physics to solar physics.
The most widely publicized group was a National Aeronautics and Space Administration team that conducted solar physics experiments during the March 2006 solar eclipse.
Similarly, biology and our very existence stands on the shoulders of the solar physics that created matter, and therefore, the planets that give us the notion of space and time instead of voidness or emptiness.
Modern solar physics programs (such as NASA's Living with a Star effort) are practical and oriented toward space weather prediction; but they also help us see our home--the solar system--as a single large place, tied together by weather patterns like the large storm fronts that roll across our own planet.
The article on the Sun was revised and re-illustrated to include new developments in solar physics and new understandings of solar activity.
