I am curious to know if there is any information that has come out of the STEREO mission/project. Are there any pictures available etc?

Thanks for all the links! Much appreciated.

One thing that I am curious about with this mission is the other potential science besides the solar research.

1) They will be at the stable Lagrange points and will hopefully discover debris fields from the creation of the moon.

2) They will be able to simultaneously look at stars and provide a binocular view of the cosmos.

3) They will provide an scientific 'foundation' for any future missions to Lagrange points such as those of the Earth-Moon system.

From what I see on their website the instruments involved might not be able to provide a large amount of secondary science but I'll take what I can get.
