SOLAR WIND INTERACTION WITH PLUTO WORKSHOP

Wednesday-Thursday, August 20-21, 2014
LASP, Boulder CO

In preparation for New Horizons flyby of Pluto around July 2015, the above workshop on the solar wind interaction with Pluto’s atmosphere will focus on current ideas and models of the upstream solar wind conditions, the interaction of the surrounding plasma with Pluto’s escaping atmosphere, and perturbations of the solar wind propagating downstream.

The workshop will include presentations on plans for observations that will be made by and datasets collected by the New Horizons Alice (UVS), REX (Radio Science), SWAP (KeV plasma), PEPSSI (MeV particles), and SDC (dust counter) instruments. Go to:
