ESA's Solar Orbiter mission is planed for launch in February 2019. Its primary goal is to study how the Sun creates and controls the heliosphere. For this task Solar Orbiter's payload includes six remote-sensing and four in-situ instruments. The Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) is involved in the two instruments EPD/EPT and STIX. To the latter one AIP even contributed flight hardware manufactured in its own workshop.

This talk intends to introduce Solar Orbiter and how AIP is involved with it.
