The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), is a project of international cooperation between
the European Space Agency (ESA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to study the Sun, from its deep core to the outer corona, and the solar wind.
SOHO is operated from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) near Washington. There an
integrated team of scientists and engineers from NASA, partner industries, research laboratories
and universities works under the overall responsibility of ESA. Ground control is provided via
NASA’s Deep Space Network antennae, located at Goldstone (California), Canberra (Australia), and
