Abstract : The three accomplishments are: (1) Observing the source of solar oscillations and detailing the properties and uses of the seismic events on the Sun, (2) The most accurate infrared observations made of the Sun which reveal the true properties of solar faculae which is important in efforts to understand the solar cycle variation of the Sun's luminosity. (3) Treatment of the seismic properties of the Sun's core which seem to apply a deficiency in standard electro weak physics. Also, SOHO data were used to determine the seismic radius of the Sun.
