Uncover the Secrets of Our Sun

  • Released Wednesday, December 13, 2023

We’re celebrating all things Sun with the Heliophysics Big Year and we want YOU to be a part of it! Join Nicola Fox, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, to learn how you can get involved in one of NASA’s many citizen science projects.

In October 2023, NASA launched the Heliophysics Big Year – a global celebration of solar science and the Sun’s influence on Earth, our solar system, and beyond. Modeled after the “Big Year” concept from citizen scientists in the bird-watching community, the Heliophysics Big Year challenges everyone to get involved with fun Sun-related activities.
