The Solar Orbiter is an engineering marvel that has the opportunity of a lifetime. It’s currently making its way around our solar system, getting closer and closer to exploring what lies beyond Earth–namely yours truly! So join me as I explore this new frontier together with this little laboratory-in-a–spacecraft called “SolarOrbit”.
What’s up in the sky? It might be a comet! Comets are chunks of ice that get warmed as they approach our Sun and give off gases, which form tails. typically have highly elliptical (i every oval-shaped) orbits; some even come from deep within space – but not many changes over time because these awesome objects don’t change much themselves through Earthly temperatures either way–so scientists love getting an opportunity to investigate them close-up by studying its composition.
The European Space Agency has released new information about a comet they passed through during one of their missions. The researchers hope to learn more about what makes this object so special from its observations in December 2021, when it will be BACK NEXT YEAR!
The Solar Orbiter team was able to predict when their satellite would pass through the comet’s tail by looking at data about solar winds, which are streams of energetic particles given off from our Sun. By entering information related to these forces into a program that models how objects move in space and around other stars (like constellations), they were then able to see for themselves exactly when it is scheduled to occur during this particular passage!
The Solar Wind Analyser onboard Solar Orbiter detected molecules of carbon monoxide, dioxide, and possibly water in Comet 67P/Churyumov- Pastebin.
The instrument also showed how the solar wind was affecting its magnetic field which is drawn out from that found around our star. These findings are intriguing because they show us what might be happening near this object as well at least parts undergo chemical reactions due to changes occurring during passage through astronomical environments like those close enough for rocky planets but too distant where gas giants exist only within their rings.”
The European Space Agency’s Solar Orbiter has just come close to a comet for the second time in its short mission! This NASA-funded satellite passed through the tail of comets ATLAS, as it gathered enough data about them. More instruments were up this time around so scientists can use what they’ve learned from these adventures and improve how we understand these amazing objects called “comets.”
The European Space Agency is excited about the opportunities that comets provide for their missions. “One of these gifts from above was recently predicted and missed during a scientific observation flight,” said Project Scientist Daniel Müller from ESTEC in Belgium. But not this time around! They were able to get close enough so we could capture images with great detail before it fragmented into pieces which then passed by us harmlessly.”
The closest Solar Orbiter has come to the sun so far was in March 2022 when it passed by at 30 million miles.
