In this image provided by NASA the Iris satellite heads into Earth orbit on a egasus rocket, which was dropped from an airplane flying over the Pacific some 100 miles off California's central coast Thursday June 27, 2013. Unlike NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which observes the entire sun, Iris will focus on a little-explored region that lies between the surface and the corona, the glowing white ring that's visible during eclipses.
