HMI Proposal Cover Art

HMI Proposal Cover image

The cover image on the April 2002 HMI proposal is a photo of the Pomodoro cube (which is presently in the Keck Chemistry building at Stanford University) overlaid on a photo of Pomodoro's Sphere No. 6 (Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C.).

The cover of the 1984 NASA report "Solar Oscillations from Space" featured Pomodoro’s Sphere No. 6.  That report led to the helioseismic study of the global Sun. Pomodoro's Cube at Stanford can represent HMI data cubes for investigation of localized regions in the Sun.
