The Focusing Optics X-ray Solar Imager (FOXSI)

FOXSI is a hard X-ray mission that detects emission from high in the tenuous corona, where previous instruments have been blinded by nearby bright features, It will fully characterize the accelerated electrons and hottest plasmas as they evolve in energy, space, and time to solve the mystery of how impulsive energy release leads to solar eruptions, the primary drivers of space weather at Earth.
