ESA scientists have developed a satellite named Solar Orbiter (SolO) which aims to study the sun very closely. This study in close collaboration with NASA consists of using the satellite to take high resolution images of the sun. Launched on February 9, 2020; the SOlo satellite will allow scientists to better understand the connection between the sun and our planet, the Earth.

Before this mission, scientists never got to see the sun very closely and this ESA mission is the very first. This tweet shows the first images taken by the SolO satellite.
