NASA probe gets closest to the sun

It was only yesterday that NASA announced its do-it-all star-studying machine has gotten closer to the Sun than any spacecraft before it, and now the probe has broken another record. The Parker Solar Probe, launched last August, reportedly crossed the 26.55-million-mile threshold off the Sun's surface initially set by the Helios-2 probe back in 1976.

In addition, NASA said that Parker has developed a Solar Probe and record the heliocentric velocity (speed relative to the Sun), also surpassing the record of Helios 2, which 246,960 km/h. At that time, the German-American probes "Helios 1" and "Helios 2", which were, however, with around 45 million kilometers a greater distance from the heat the ball began. As the Parker Solar Probe mission progresses, the spacecraft will repeatedly break its own records, with a final close approach of 3.83 million miles from the Sun's surface expected in 2024.

"It's been just 78 days since Parker Solar Probe launched, and we've now come closer to our star than any other spacecraft in history", stated Andy Driesman, the project manager behind the Parker Solar Probe. "The team proud, but we continue to focus on our first contact with the Sun, which starts on 31 October". Its mission is to learn everything it can about the center of the solar system, the sun.

However the ascendancy of Prince Mohammed bin Salman changed the equations and he ended up being a critic of the establishment. According to the latest information, the reason why they broke up the body is to make it dissolve more easily.

The probe will begin it's first encounter with the Sun on Wednesday, culminating with its perihelion, or closest point to the Sun, at about 10:28 p.m. EST on Monday.

The spacecraft is carrying a number of state-of-the-art instruments, allowing NASA scientists to collect vital data in order to answer fundamental questions about the Earth's closest star.

The Parker Solar Probe team periodically measures the spacecraft's precise speed and position using NASA's Deep Space Network, or DSN.

During their trip, Moorthy posted a photo to Instagram with her back to the camera, sitting on a ledge and gazing at a sunset. Around the world selfie deaths too have become common as some try to shoot a picture standing at precarious places.

NASA said, while tweeting the achievement of Parker Probe, "We have reached the closest to touch the sun".

For several days around the November 5 perihelion, Parker Solar Probe will be completely out of contact with Earth because of interference from the Sun's overwhelming radio emissions.

While Parker approached the Sun at a distance of about the accounting period by 40.23 million kilometers.
