NASA's Genesis mission will send a spacecraft to collect pieces of the Sun, called solar wind that may contain the answers. After a January 2001 launch, the Genesis spacecraft will journey a million miles sunward, unfold its collectors and "sunbathe" for two years, before returning to Earth with its precious cargo. Scientists will study the solar wind samples for years to come. Students can follow the mission at this site and participate in activities such as designing the mission patch.
