Weeks after Parker Solar Probe made the closest-ever approach to a star, the science data from the encounter is just making its way into the hands of the mission's scientists. It's a moment many in the field have been anticipating for years, thinking about what they'll do with such never-before-seen data that has the potential to shed new light on the physics of our star.
On Dec. 12, four such researchers gathered at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in Washington, D.C., to share what they hope to learn from Parker Solar Probe.
