You know how your mother always told you never to look directly at the sun – well the European Space Agency craft known as Proba 2 is ignoring that advice and yielding some cool science.

Researchers rolled out the first images this week since the launch of Proba-2 last November.  The spacecraft was designed to test some new technology – but also do some science – focused on the sun – like its predecessor – SOHO -still out there gazing at the sun.
