During solid rocket booster lifting operations on Launch Pad 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, a moth is spotted resting on a structure, oblivious to the action around it. The SRB will be mated with the Boeing Delta II rocket already in place. The Delta rocket is the launch vehicle for NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO). Preparations are under way for a liftoff no earlier than Aug. 1. STEREO consists of two spacecraft whose mission is the first to take measurements of the sun and solar wind in 3-D. This new view will improve our understanding of space weather and its impact on the Earth. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
