ESA’s future Lagrange mission to monitor the Sun


Space weather describes the changing environment throughout the Solar System, driven by the energetic and unpredictable nature of our Sun. Solar wind, solar flares and Coronal Mass Ejections can result in geomagetic storms on Earth, potentially damaging satellites in space and the technologies that rely on them, as well as infrastructure on the ground.

ESA’s future Lagrange mission will keep constant watch on the Sun. The satellite, located at the fifth Lagrange point, will send early warning of potentially harmful solar activity before it affects satellites in orbit or power grids on the ground, giving operators the time to act to protect vital infrastructure.

ESA is now working with European industry to assess options for the spacecraft and its mission, with initial proposals expected early in 2020.

  1. The sun's true color in space is white. Depicting it as a fictional yellow / orange (in space) is as ridiculously wrong as depicting a fictional flat earth. It is science denialism / ignorance at its best. Even science-fiction movies now show a factual white sun in space. I hope the scientific community, academic institutions & the media grow up & learn to depict facts.

    There is a youtube video, "Sun Color In Space – Fact vs Fiction" that debunks all silly justifications for misrepresenting the sun color in space visuals.

  2. Hey where is that host guy in glasses. I dunno his name, he was hosting ESA-casts here several years ago. It was really interesting to watch those casts with that guy. Please bring him back. Also strange i couldn't find videos with him hosting here in ESA videos list. WTH basically?

  3. Ainda não foi entendido, mesmo depois de ter atingido tal tecnologia, que a Luz responde ao que lhe foi primeiro enviado. A Lei é: dando x se recebe +x.Agradecer, adorar e mesmo, comandar a Luz – é para quem conhece a Deus.
