Released on 2019-10-18

Abstract: The ESA Solar Orbiter mission will perform close-up studies of the Sun, from a distance of only 42 million km. That is less than one third of the distance from the Earth to the Sun, and also well within Mercury's orbit. The EUI telescopes will take pictures of the solar atmosphere in non-visible light, i.e. in extreme ultraviolet.
