High-energy particles in space cause problems for electronics and detectors. Many dramatic examples are seen in the images taken by the SOHO spacecraft during solar energetic particle 'storms'. Here, superimposed images from different SOHO instruments show the many spots and streaks caused by particle impacts on the pixels of the cameras. The largest area part of the composite image is from the LASCO coronograph.
