NASA’S Parker Solar Probe, a spacecraft, was launched to study the sun and its inner cores/layers. On November 15th, according to NASA Parker Solar Probe is set to slant on the Sun as close as 8.5 million kilometers to the surface of the sun, it means the spacecraft will be closer than Mercury’s 46 million kilometers when it is nearest to the sun, it will be its 10th improbable approach to examine Sun.

The spacecraft is anticipated to crumble down its record-breaking speed while gliding past the sun on November 21. The spacecraft will reach a speed of 586,800 kilometers per hour, a blazing speed of 163 kilometers per second, and a speed of 0.054% of the speed of light.

Parker Solar Probe made its way for its closest approach to our star after an oscillate past evening star Venus on October 16; what on earth could use the planet’s gravity to configure its path? Perhaps Parker Solar Probe would, the spacecraft is studying plasma from the sun along with Solar wind (charged particles radiated from the upper atmosphere of the Sun).  


Parker Solar Probe was launched in space in August 2018. It would swing past the evening planet Venus seven times by using the atmosphere gravitational force to gingerly decrease the perihelion and aphelion of its orbit to close near to the final trajectory of 8.5 solar radii from the surface of the sun.

With a backing of the latter two spaceflights of Venus in August 2023 and November 2024 and astonishingly the spacecraft will reach the closest of the 6.2 million kilometers from the surface of the Sun in December 2024, with a lighting speed of 690,000 kilometers by then /Hour, reaching 0.064% of the speed of light.

The spacecraft will travel into the highest layer of the Sun’s atmosphere, delicately named Corona. It will assist the Homosapien’s in understanding the genesis and the flowering of the mightiest star in our solar system. The spacecraft was named in the wake of Eugene Parker, who discovered the concept of the solar wind.

The spacecraft will execute its mathematical examination on a hazardous region of extreme heat conditions and solar radiation. The Parker Solar Probe is put under intense manner to prick into an atmospheric layer of the Sun to study the solar wind speed out of subsonic to supersonic.

Parker Probe has been crafted with intense particles; the surface of the Parker probe has a distinctive carbon composite shield with a thickness of 11.4 cm, which can hold out against extreme conditions and high atmospheric temperatures. Also, it is the first Probe to glide into the solar corona to detect plasma, magnetic fields, and waves, energetic particles.
