We will review the very latest observations and results obtained by the Radio and Plasma Waves (RPW) Instrument on the recently launched Solar Orbiter mission. RPW is designed to measure in-situ magnetic and electric fields and waves from 'DC' to a few hundreds of kHz. RPW is also capable of measuring solar radio emissions up to 16 MHz and link them to solar flares observed by the onboard remote sensing instruments. The latest results we will present concern a wide range of phenomena including: Langmuir and Whistler Waves, dust impacts, Solar Type III bursts and observations during the recently visited Venus environment.
