A new solar orbiter which happens to be called "solar orbiter" is going up this week. Yet another satellite intended to study the interaction between the sun and earth.
I find this amusing because all the believers be like "move along, nothing to see here, these aren't the droids you're looking for" any time a new earth sun interaction is discovered or more earth/sun instrumentation goes up.
