NASA released the first images of Sun

NASA released the first images taken with a charge coupled device (CCD) imaging sensors fabricated in the UK by e2V. The sensors are an integral part of the space agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

The SDO spacecraft will examine the evolution of solar activity and could help to add to our understanding of "space weather by studying the Sun on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously", said NASA.
