Abstract

Solar Orbiter will provide, at very high spatial (35 km pixel size) and temporal resolution, novel observations of the solar atmosphere and unexplored inner heliosphere, which will be made in the heliosynchronous segments of the orbits at heliocentric distances near 45 solar radii and out of the ecliptic plane at high heliographic latitudes up to 38°. The Solar Orbiter will achieve its wide-ranging scientific aims with a suite of sophisticated instruments through an innovative orbit design.
