varied astrophysical works,
but for a while*, I'm focusing on this relationship :
Mercury/Sun, NASA/TRACE©

(*In fact, I am working to measure the density and temperature of electrons and the typical size of the dust within the rings of Saturn, using the Cassini's radio antennas, so I maintain my "varied astrophysical works" hereabove)

My favorite spacecrafts and some other links :

First of all, CASSINI , and more historically ULYSSES and WIND . I love the idea of The Solar Probe

By the way, I am the local PI (here at LESIA) of a radio spectrometer called SORBET which is selected in the scientific payload of the : Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO) (one of the two spacecrafts of the Japanese-European mission BepiColombo, to be launched in 2012. MMO is the Japanese one). Sorbet is a radio spectrometer which investigates the 3-300 kHz band, which includes the plasma frequency expected in the small Mercury magnetosphere: that should allow the first in situ observation of the interaction between Mercury and the Solar Wind.
