MYS CANAVERAL November 6 (WebNoviny.sk) – The Parker Solar Probe probe, sent by NASA, came closest to Sun, just two and a half months after the launch.
On Monday night, 24 million miles flew from the sun's surface. At the cruise, it reached a speed of 342,000 kilometers per hour and penetrated the sunny atmosphere or corona. No spacecraft is so close to our star.
NASA does not restore contact with the probe until it is far enough away from the sun to prevent radio interference. Nicola Fox from NASA said that researchers "They can not wait until they get the information"From the probe. Observations through the probe could clarify some of Sun's mysteries. If he assumes that he lives in an extreme environment, the probe will fly 23 times around the sun for the next seven years and come closer to it. Next approach will be in April next year.
