All current, past and future sun-earth connection missions with their offical mission pages.

Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO)
SOHO is a joint NASA and ESA mission to study the sun's interior, atmosphere and solar wind, in operation since 1995.

Fast Auroral Snapshot (FAST)
FAST, the second mission in NASA's Small Explorer Satellite Program (SMEX), is a satellite designed to study Earth's aurora.

What is the sun made of? Are the Earth and planets made of the same stuff? Genesis launched in 2001 sunward to collect pieces of the sun (solar wind), that may contain these answers. Upon its return to Earth in 2004, scientists will study the solar wind samples for years to come.
