The heliophysics mission is called IMAP - the Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe - and aims to study the fundamental nature of our solar system.

The Polish centre is to construct one of the probe's ten instruments, namely the Global Solar Wind Structure instrument – GLOWS for short. 

Poles started working with NASA in 1962, but this is the first time that Polish researchers will be building an entire instrument. 

Elżbieta Krajewska spoke to Professor Maciej Bzowski, principal investigator of the GLOWS experiment on the IMAP mission.
