IRIS (Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph, NASA, launched in 2013) combines imagers and a spectrograph. The solar group gets interest in this mission for its diagnosis capacities of the solar plasma based on these two technics.

This mission (NASA, launched in 2009), following the path of Corot, combines also asteroseismology and the search of exoplanets. The stellar group is actively involved in the data analysis.

Solar Orbiter is a mission for the study of the Sun and its heiosphere. It was selected as the M1 mission of the ESA Cosmic Vision program. Launch is expected in 2020.

 

Solar Orbiter will be the first satellite for the exploration of inner parts of our solar system, allowing a continuous observation (in co-rotation) of active regions of the Sun and providing close-in observations of the polar regions of our star.

ARIEL is a space telescope that will systematically probe the atmospheres of a thousand extrasolar planets, from gas giants to rocky planets, whether hot or temperate around stars of different types. ARIEL will measure the composition and structure of planetary atmospheres, constrain the nature of planetary cores, detect the presence of clouds and study interactions with the host star. More details.

The Sun and its corona as seen by HECOR and HEIT: preliminary results
Launched on September 14, 2009 from White Sands Missile Range (New Mexico), the Herschel sounding rocket was carrying two experiments with strong IAS participation: HECOR and HEIT.

PICARD is a survey on the simultaneous measurement of the absolute total and spectral solar irradiance, solar diameter and shape, and the interior of the Sun by helioseismologic survey.

These measurements obtained throughout the mission will enable study of their variations as a function of solar activity.

The SOHO mission (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory - ESA/NASA) was conceived for the study of the internal structure of the Sun, the heating of its atmosphere and the origin of the solar wind. It was launched by the end of 1995 from Cape Canaveral.
