The Origin of the Solar Wind
The source regions of the solar wind, and its driver and acceleration mechanism, remain key topics of study in heliophysics. With its combination of high sensitivity and high spatial resolution measurements of Doppler flows, mass motions, and plasma composition, the Hinode satellite is uniquely equipped to investigate many of these issues. On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the launch of Hinode, we here briefly review some of the scientific highlights on this subject from the mission over the last decade.
