Joint Solo/RPW & PSP/FIELDS workshop at Hôtel Dupanloup – Orléans

The LPC2E is strongly involved in the two major space missions currently investigating the physics of the Sun and of the solar wind: Parker Solar Probe, launched in 2018 by NASA, which aims to visit for the first time the atmosphere of our star, and Solar Orbiter, launched by ESA in 2020, which seeks to understand how the Sun controls the interplanetary space.

The scientific exploitation of these missions is still ongoing, and the LPC2E is organising a conference from 26 to 29 February at Dupanloup, bringing together around sixty European and American researchers and engineers involved in these missions. The conference will focus more specifically on the results obtained by the RPW and FIELDS instrument suites, for which the LPC2E has supplied a magnetic field sensor. Karine Issautier, a researcher at the Paris Observatory, will be giving a lecture in french for the general public on Tuesday 27 February at 8pm at the Muséum d’Orléans pour la Biodiversité et l’Environnement, entitled “Les mystères du Soleil dévoilés”.
