The mission of the Parker Solar Probe is the study of the Sun. Probe Parker should be close to a record close of 6.1 million kilometers to the Sun and the first of the previously created mankind apparatuses to enter into so-called solar corona. According to scientists, the shielding of the probe is heated to 1371,11°C.
The device will measure the electromagnetic field of the Sun and determine the nature of the particles emitted by the star. Such research should enable scientists to answer a number of questions related to the Sun.
On the probe Parker spent about $ 1.5 billion.
As reported by “Around the world. Ukraine”, NASA is looking for people willing to burn the name into the Sun’s corona.
