United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs

International Heliophysical Year (IHY 2007)

Introduction

In 1957, in a display of unprecedented international cooperation, more than 66.000 scientists and engineers from 67 nations participated in the International Geophysical Year (IGY1957). Fifty years on, the International Heliophysical Year (IHY 2007) again drew scientists and engineers from around the globe in a coordinated observation campaign of the heliosphere and its effects on planet Earth.

Drawing on nearly fifteen years of workshops on basic space science for the benefit of scientists and engineers from developing nations, the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs, through the United Nations Basic Space Science Initiative (BSSI), assisted scientists and engineers from all over the world in participating in the preparations for IHY 2007.
