“The Dark Side of the Sun” on the Discovery Channel

A Discovery Channel documentary featuring SPP will air on Discovery Channel Saturday, February 11 and Sunday, February 12 on Science Channel:

Premiering as the centerpiece of Science Channel Weekend on Discovery Channel, THE DARK SIDE OF THE SUN tells the story of our growing awareness of the true nature of our star, its critical importance to all life on Earth, and its potentially harmful effects on modern civilization.

The SPP spacecraft will be featured in the program.

…under construction in the clean rooms of the Johns Hopkins, Applied Physics Lab, is NASA’s Solar Probe Plus, a spacecraft designed to fly to the sun and unlock the secrets of the corona, the mysterious hazy cloud that surrounds the sun and that can be seen during a total solar eclipse — like the one that will be visible across large parts of the United States in August 2017.
