I think part of the plan is that they will have a clear view of the back of the Sun so that we get a little extra warning when solar flares are brewing. Today's economy depends on communication satellites which can be damaged by large solar flares. I don't know what the countermeasures are, but astronauts can also be killed, which could be avoided with enough warning.

Wow. We'll finally see the dark side of the sun.

LOL. No really, its very bright. It looks a little like California. Especially now with all the brush fires.
