Solar Orbiter blasts off to capture 1st look at sun's poles 


Europe and NASA’s Solar Orbiter rocketed into space on 9th February night on an unprecedented mission to capture the first pictures of the sun’s elusive poles.

The $1.5 billion spacecraft will join NASA’s Parker Solar Probe, launched 1 1/2 years ago, in coming perilously close to the sun to unveil its secrets.

It was made in Europe, along with nine science instruments.

NASA provided the 10th instrument and arranged the launch from Cape Canaveral.
