Celebrating the 60th diamond jubilee of the Physics Research Laboratory (PRL) in Ahmedabad/India, we look back over the last 6 decades in solar physics and contemplate about 10 outstanding problems (or research focii) in solar physics: (1) The solar neutrino problem, - (2) Structure of the solar interior (helioseismoloy), - (3) The solar magnetic field (dynamo, solar cycle, corona), - (4) Hydrodynamics of coronal loops, - (5) MHD oscillations and waves (coronal seismology), - (6) The coronal heating problem, - (7) Self-organized criticality (from nanoflares to giant flares), - (8) Magnetic reconnection processes, - (9) Particle acceleration processes, - (10) Coronal mass ejections and coronal dimming. - The first two problems have been largely solved, recently, while the other 8 selected problems are still pending a final solution, and thus remain persistent Challenges for the next Solar Cycle 24, the theme of this jubilee conference.
