Their Primary objective is to increase understanding of the Sun— an astronomical body of immense impact on the Earth and the Solar System.
Helios 1 and Helios 2 are a pair of probes that were launched into space to study solar processes of the Sun. As a joint venture of Germany’s space agency DLR and NASA, the probes were launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, on December 10, 1974, and January 15, 1976, respectively.
Ulysses is a decommissioned robotic space probe whose primary mission was to orbit the Sun and study it at all latitudes. It was launched in 1990 and made three “fast latitude scans” of the Sun. The spacecraft was originally named Odysseus, because of its lengthy and indirect trajectory to study the solar poles. It was renamed Ulysses, the Latin translation of “Odysseus”, at ESA’s request.
SOHO, the Solar & Heliospheric Observatory, is a project of international collaboration between ESA and NASA to study the Sun from its deep core to the outer corona and the solar wind. SOHO is a spacecraft built by a European industrial consortium that was launched to study the Sun.
