The sun and us

Man has always known that without the sun there would be no life on Earth, and while science may have ‘de-mythologised’ the sun it has certainly not diminished our awe of it. The more we learn, the more we realise that our planet is intricately connected with it in many ways.

Space technology has given us the tools to pursue our intrinsic curiosity to push back the boundaries of our knowledge of our star – and to use the sun’s power for the benefit of people on Earth.
