17th Solar Orbiter Science Working Team meeting and First Joint Solar Probe Plus - Solar Orbiter Workshop "The origins of the Heliosphere"

Second Sunrise II Science meeting in Göttingen, 28-29 September, 2015, Göttingen

SOLAR ORBITER: Magnetized sun, magnetic sun

Solar Orbiter is the next mission of the European Space Agency to study the sun. The SPG contributes to this mission with SO/PHI.

Lateral downflows in the sunspot penumbral filaments and their temporal evolution

For the first time, the temporal evolution of the lateral downflows is observed and characterized

The contribution of the solar internetwork to the network magnetic flux

The weakest magnetic elements on the solar surface determine the maintenance of the network flux patches

IAA-CSIC is co-managing an instrument that will orbit around the Sun on board the Solar Orbiter 

Solar Orbiter (ESA) will travel around the Sun to study both solar physics and the Sun’s influence on the interplanetary medium

The history of a quiet-Sun magnetic element revealed by IMaX/Sunrise 

For the first time, researchers observe the formation and evolution of a resolved quiet-Sun magnetic element
