Preamble by Snoopy20111

Both of these instruments are based upon instruments currently aboard the SOHO and STEREO spacecraft. It also adds a few new flags.

I take no part, nor am I interested in maintaining the CKAN mod metadata for my mods. CKAN is a great mod for those that can't use zip tools. If you are having issues please let the CKAN people know and refer to the CKAN thread. My support of CKAN extends as far as me checking the checkbox in Spacedock when I upload. Beware, CKAN can really mess up though it tries very, very, very hard not to.
