Save-the-Date Announcement

The First Galileo Solar Space Telescope Workshop (GSST01) will be held at the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE) in São José dos Campos, Brazil, from March 16-18, 2020.

The Galileo Solar Space Telescope (GSST) is a cornerstone mission to provide accurate measurements of the magnetic field in the photosphere and outer layers of the solar atmosphere within the international effort to understand the evolution of the Heliosphere. The main goal of the workshop is the preparation for formal mission analysis, including the assess the technical and programmatic feasibility of the possible concepts (Phase 0/A) of the GSST Mission to be conducted from May/2020 to November/2020.

The underlying basic questions to be addressed by the GSST mission are: What are the fundamental physical/plasma processes at work in the Sun? How does the solar dynamo work? What is the relative contribution of different physical processes that lead to the heating of the outer layers (Chromosphere to Corona)? What are the effects of the magnetic structure of the outer layers of the Sun on the evolution of the Earth's highly coupled atmosphere-ocean system? What is the response of the magnetic field and energetic particles in the vicinity of our planet, i.e. the Earth’s inner magnetosphere region, due to different solar wind structures?

Registration and abstract submission will open on November 19, 2019.
