Solar Probe Beta is one of two specially designed payloads that are both used in Mission 12 to study SOL, the other being Solar Probe Alpha. Beta is distinguishable from Alpha by its red rocket engine housing; Alpha's rocket engine housing is blue.
- The mission briefing describes the probes as having special shielding to protect the probes's sensors from the intense heat of SOL, but if they are maneuvered too close to SOL they will still be destroyed.
