The NASA/APL Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission will revolutionize our understanding of the Sun by swooping to within 4 million miles of the Sun s surface. This mission targets the fundamental processes and dynamics that characterize the Sun s corona and outwardly expanding solar wind and will be the first mission to fly into the low solar corona (i.e., the Sun s atmosphere) revealing both how the corona is heated and how the solar wind is accelerated. PSP has many engineering challenges presented by the intense environment in ...

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission plans to send a spacecraft to explore the inner region of the heliosphere and is currently working towards launch in 2018. The SPP spacecraft will make in-situ measurements and remote observations over a series of 24 nearly-ecliptic solar orbits with perihelion decreasing from 35 solar radii (Rs) to a minimum of 9.86 Rs over a period of 7 years. Proper orientation of the spacecraft and solar arrays relative to the Sun is essential for a successful mission. A large shield must be kept betwee ...
