Welcome to the 18th RHESSI Workshop


Credit: R. Peralta

Launched in 2002, the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) was a NASA Small Explorer Mission designed to explore the basic physics of particle acceleration and explosive energy release in solar flares. This is achieved through imaging spectroscopy observations of the X-ray and gamma-ray emissions of these energetic events. Decommissioned in October 2018, RHESSI covered more than a complete solar cycle in its 16 year lifetime and tremendously advanced the understanding of high energy phenomena at the Sun. 

This workshop is the 18th in a series of workshops to explore high-energy topics in solar flare physics. The workshop will feature results from RHESSI and several other instruments studying high-energy solar physics, including NuSTAR, EOVSA, Fermi, MinXSS and FOXSI, and will also focus on preparing for future missions such as FOXSI, ASO-S and STIX.


The detailed program of the workshop is now available! (bottom of the schedule page)
