Solar Orbiter spacecraft takes its closest look at the sun

The Solar Orbiter spacecraft will make its closest strategy to the sun on Saturday (March 26), passing at about one third of the sun-Earth distance. And we are able to count on some fabulous new record-breaking pictures to comply with quickly!

The daring European mission (with contribution from NASA), will look at the sun from a distance of “only” 30 million miles (48.3 million km) on Saturday morning at 7:50 a.m. EDT (1150 GMT). Doing that, the probe is about to interrupt its personal earlier document for the closest pictures of the sun ever taken.
