The recent rediscovery of magnetic field switchbacks or deflections embedded in the solar wind flow by the Parker Solar Probe mission lead to a huge interest in the modeling of the formation mechanisms and origin of these switchbacks. Several scenarios for their generation were put forth, ranging from lower solar atmospheric origins by reconnection, to being a manifestation of turbulence in the solar wind, and so on. Here we study some potential formation mechanisms of magnetic switchbacks in the lower solar atmosphere, usin ...

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft will orbit as closely as 9.5 solar radii from the sun; so close that its thermal protection shield (TPS) will reach a peak temperature of 1,400C. To work in this environment, the solar array will use pressurized water cooling and operate in the penumbra formed by the TPS at a 68 degrees angle of incidence. Even with these mitigations, the array will be subject to extremely high intensity and temperature. This paper will summarize the array s environment, present a preliminary design, out ...
