Spacecraft go to film Sun in 3D
CMEs will typically throw a billion tonnes of matter into space
'US space agency Nasa has launched two spacecraft that are expected to make the first 3D movies of the Sun.
The Stereo mission will study violent eruptions from our parent star known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs).
The eruptions create huge clouds of energetic particles that can trigger magnetic storms, disrupting power grids and air and satellite communications.'
