Every 18 months or so, scientists and sensation-seekers gather at set points on Earth's surface, to await awe-inspiring solar eclipses. The Moon briefly blocks the Sun, revealing its mysterious outer atmosphere, the corona. Though what if researchers could induce such eclipses at will? That's the scientific vision behind ESA's double-satellite Proba-3, the world's first precision formation-flying mission, planned for launch in 2019. An 'occulter' satellite will fly 150 m ahead of a second...
