Solar Maximum Mission Information and Data on the MLSO website

The Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) satellite was launched in 1980 aboard a NASA Delta rocket. Among SMM's primary science objectives was the study of the dynamics of solar flares and the study of solar magnetic fields associated with the flare phenomenon. Towards this end, the High Altitude Observatory (HAO) provided a white-light coronagraph/polarimeter (C/P) to study the relationship of the corona to the flare process.
