Solar Orbiter will study the sun’s storms

America - Cape Canaveral - Florida: - The European-American "Solar Orbiter" probe was launched toward the sun, on a decade-long mission during which its storms study the sun laden with particles, which can cause crashes on Earth.

The Solar Orbiter probe was launched in partnership with NASA.

A US missile has successfully launched the European Space Agency probe, from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The probe transports ten scientific instruments for an estimated cost of 1.5 billion euros.

After passing through the orbits of Venus and then Mercury, the probe, which has a top speed of 245,000 km per hour, will approach 42 million km from the sun, less than a third of the distance between the Earth and the sun.
