After takeoff, a voice announced, that all was in order:
A mission daring to shed light on the mysteries of our nearest star”.
During the next seven years, Parker will fly directly through the warm outer atmosphere of the Sun in an attempt to unlock some of the most important secrets of the solar system.
The objective of placing the probe very close to the Sun, is to obtain information on the solar winds and particles of solar energy.
The probe will not take pictures or film videos of the Sun, but that will analyze the composition of the solar atmosphere. In particular, you will measure the flow of the solar wind and the rain of particles that sprout from the star and that sometimes bombard the Earth and its satellites.
A great challenge
The spacecraft will have to withstand temperatures of over 1300 ° C, while orbiting around the Sun a for 24 times. The ship will be only 6 million kilometers from the Sun. It should be noted that the distance that exists between the Earth and the Sun is 149.6 million kilometers.
In addition, the Parker Solar Probe will beat two records: it becomes the fastest ship built by the man, reaching approximately 700,000 miles per hour, and most will approach to the Sun, seven times more that the one that ventured in the past, the Helios 2.
