At 13.04 local time in the US on October 29 "Solar Parker Probe" National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Make new statistics close to the closeness of the sun to the closest distance human exploration ever made. It was in excess of the original Helios 2 ships built under US-Germany cooperation, at a distance of 42.73 million km. April 1976
Parker's solar propulsion broke the speed record for Helix 2, which reached 246,960 km / h (246,960 km / h). Such a course. And he is preparing to crack more statistics in the near future.
Parker was sent from Cape Canaveral, Florida on August 12. Arriving at the target 78 days later, they plan to move over the sun for a total of 24 rounds nearby, which will move more and more in each round of the round when the final round ends around 2025. Parker is just 6.16 million miles away from the sun's surface and will gravitate to the maximum speed of the sun. Space ship prognosis at 690,000 kilometers per hour.
Parker Solar probes are made of special carbon compounds. To prevent heat and sunlight from destroying all exploration devices in the craft.
The purpose of exploring the sun. The center of the solar system is to find the answer. Why the outer atmosphere of the sun, called the "corona", is much higher than the surface temperature of the star. And find the answer to that. Which acts as an acceleration of the catalyst in the solar wind at such a high speed.
