As a component of NASA's Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) mission, MSU scientists operate the Max Millennium Program for several functions that are key to the successful acquisition of observationally complete datasets and the full scientific exploitation of those observations.

They include the following:

  1. Plans for joint observing between RHESSI and other space and ground-based instruments.
  2. Identification of daily observing targets by a cadre of experienced solar observers (MMmotd)
  3. Descriptions of RHESSI data analysis projects
  4. Notification of RHESSI software and hardware updates
  5. The Solar Physics E-Print Archive. The over 2000 e-prints in this archive are cited about twice as often as average.
  6. Three self-subscribed e-mail distribution lists for those who want to receive messages relevant to these functions:
    • Max Millennium News, Science Nuggets from various missions, general announcements (Mmscience list, ~375 subscribers),
    • Daily solar activity observing targets (Mmmotd list, ~285 subscribers),
    • RHESSI software updates (RHESSI_Data Analysis list, ~210 subscribers)
