SDO is designed to help us understand the Sun's influence on Earth and Near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously. The spacecraft left NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., on July 7, 2009 where it was built and tested and arrived at the Astrotech Space Operations facility outside the NASA Kennedy Space Center on July 9, 2009.
