The China-ESA Joint Mission SMILE Adopted for Implementation by ESA

In late March 2019, the Solar wind Magnetosphere Ionosphere Link Explorer, or SMILE, a China-ESA joint mission, was adopted for implementation by the European Space Agency (ESA). The adoption, as a milestone event, signifies the kick-off of the engineering phase of the joint scientific mission, which aims to study the interaction between the solar wind and the Earth magnetosphere.

    What caused the extremely hot summer in South and Central China? The researchers found the heat was directly caused by a high-pressure system in the atmosphere, which greatly impacted the surface temperature. In addition to the effects of the high-pressure system, the ocean has continued to warm over the last decade and is predicted to continue warming into the long-term future.
