ICARUS: in-situ studies of the solar corona beyond Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter
The primary scientific goal of ICARUS (Investigation of Coronal AcceleRation and heating of solar wind Up to the Sun), a mother- daughter satellite mission, proposed in response to the ESA Voyage 2050 Call, will be to determine how the magnetic field and plasma dynamics in the outer solar atmosphere give rise to the corona, the solar wind, and the entire heliosphere. Reaching this goal will be a Rosetta Stone step, with results that are broadly applicable within the fields of space plasma physics and astrophysics. Within ...

Execution of Parker solar probe s unprecedented flight to the sun and early results
Parker Solar Probe (PSP) was launched on August 12, 2018, on its way to enter the solar corona and "touch" the Sun for the first time. We utilize enormous planetary gravity assists from 7 repeated Venus flybys via a V7GA trajectory in 24 solar orbits over 7 years, to get within 8.86 solar radii from the Sun s surface. The probe successfully entered the V7GA trajectory and made the first Venus flyby only 52 days after launch. Five weeks later it flew by the Sun at a perihelion distance of 0.166 AU and fl ...
