Solar Orbiter: Assessment Phase Final Report


"The assessment study of the Solar Orbiter has addressed all mission areas,
from the scientific requirements to the payload complement, the space and
ground segments, and the respective technology readiness, including all corresponding programmatic aspects."

"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853
