Finally, many high Earth orbiting satellites monitor solar activity. The GOES satellites carry a large contingent of “space weather” instruments that take images of the Sun and track magnetic and radiation levels in space around them. Other orbital “sweet spots,” just beyond high Earth orbit, are the Lagrange points. At the ...
