Solar Orbiter launch to face the Sun


ESA’s new Sun explorer will be launched from Cape Canaveral next Monday morning. Solar Orbiter is an ESA-led mission with strong NASA participation. It will provide the first views of the Sun’s unchartered polar regions from high latitudes, giving unprecedented insight into how our parent star works. This important mission will also investigate the Sun-Earth connection, helping us to better understand and predict periods of stormy space weather.
