MYS CANAVERAL November 6 (WebNoviny.sk) – NASA's Parker Solar Probe probe turned to the Sun for the first time only two and a half months after its launch.
On Monday night, 24 million miles from the surface of the Sun flew. On the cruise it reached a speed of 342,000 kilometers per hour and penetrated through the sunshine or the coroner. No spaceship is so close to our star.
NASA will not renew its contact with the probe until it is far enough from the Sun to prevent radio interference. Nicola Fox of NASA said that scientists "they can not wait until they get the information"From the probe, observations through the probe could explain some of the secrets of the Sun, assuming that it lives in the extreme environments, the probe will fly 23 times around the Sun in the next seven years and approach it, the next approach will be in April next year.
