Sarah Mitchell and Pictures on a Cosmic Scale

We all know that Sarah Mitchell's photos are out-of-this-world. But wait to you see these!

Well, Sarah didn't actually take them with her trusty Canon SLR. She is however a key member of the team that created NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, a space telescope designed to study the sun. Dubbed as our "Hubble for the Sun", SDO promises to uncover as many mysteries and amazements for solar physics.

"No solar telescope has ever come close to the combined spatial, temporal and spectral resolution of SDO," says Alan Title of Lockheed Martin, principal investigator of the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA), the observatory's main telescope array. "This is possible because of the combination of 4096 x 4096-pixel CCDs with huge dynamic range and a geosynchronous orbit which allows SDO to observe the sun and communicate with the ground around the clock."

Yeah great...but can it avoid clipping the highlights?
