Event Details & Abstract: 

The STEREO mission fundamentally changes the way many heliospheric researchers work because it both integrates solar imaging and in-situ observations, and makes multiperspective, multipoint studies routinely possible. These features have spawned the greater use of 3D coupled coronal and solar wind models, and also a renewed appreciation for solar source complexity and its consequences. In short, we humans enjoy a more complete picture of how the Sun determines our heliospheric space environment than at any time in history.
