New Space Ship for Sun Monitoring to Appear
Solar activity

Russian physicists will soon end developing a new type of space ships for monitoring the Sun from a very close distance less than Mercurys orbit.
      By the end of 2012 Russian academy of sciences and RosCosmos will decide how the InterHelioZond space ship would look like and what scientific equipment it would carry.
      The space ship will broadcast Suns images, taken with resolution of 300 kilometers. Physicists will equip the satellite with three telescopes, a coronagraph to block out direct light from the star and hard X-ray and optical heliospheric devices.
      New coronagraphs will show scientists observe the Suns ecliptic plane form above and see the real topology of an interplanetary magnetic field, which is currently thought to be a spiral with the Sun in the centre. Moreover, real trajectories of solar bursts, moving towards our planet can also be detected.
