Since November ESA’s Solar Orbiter spacecraft is in Florida in preparation for its launch on NASA provided Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral.
Equipped with a suite of ten instruments, Solar Orbiter will capture the closest ever pictures of our star, the first images of its poles, and make detailed observations of solar activity. Its specially designed heatshield is capable of enduring temperatures of more than 500 degrees Celsius.
This A&B Roll shows images of preparation of Solar Orbiter in Florida.
It includes interviews with
Daniel MÜLLER, Solar Orbiter Project Scientist, ESA (in English & German)
César GARCÍA, Solar Orbiter Project Manager, ESA (in English & Spanish)
Frédéric AUCHÈRE, Solar Orbiter Principal Investigator (English & French)
