The US Aerospace Agency (NASA) has thrown the Parker Solar Probe into the air.
In NASA’s statement, the car was reported to move from Cape Canaveral Space Base in Florida at 0:33 pm (TST 10:33) local time.
The planned launch of the space vehicle on the size of the car, launched by the Boeing company’s Delta 4 rocket yesterday morning, was postponed today due to technical difficulties.
The ATMOSPHERE DURING THE END OF SUN will be the first spacecraft to BE
If there is no problem, the ‘Parker Solar Probe’ will be the first spacecraft to fly through the scorching atmosphere of the Sun called ‘Corona’ (Korona or Crown layer).A better understanding of the operation of the Korona layer can provide useful information to scientists in predicting the solar storms that can damage the power transmission networks of the Earth.
The temperature in the sun increases as we move away from the surface. A temperature of 10,000 Fahrenheit degrees on the sun can reach 10 million Fahrenheit degrees on the corona layer.
NASA hopes the Parker Solar Probe will shed some light on why the korona layer has such high temperatures.
To 1370 degrees Celsius TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE
Although NASA calls this mission “touching the sun,” it will actually travel over 6.16 million miles of spacecraft.
Although the name of Eugene Parker, the leading Sun astrophysicist of 91, is far from the star of the car, NASA says it is a close transition when considering the conditions in the Sun.
Because the part of the vehicle facing the Sun will be based on a temperature of 1370 degrees Celsius. The carbon composite protection shield, which is about 12 centimeters thick on the vehicle, will keep the vehicle at room temperature.This shield was developed to withstand the radioactive effect of the Sun.
Special equipment on the vehicle will measure magnetic and electric fields, plasma waves and high energy particles.
‘HUMIDITY CREATURE FASTEST OBJECT’
Scientist Nicky Fox of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Department said that the Parker Solar Probe, which will travel at 692,000 miles per hour, would be the fastest man-made object.
During the expected 7-year journey, the spacecraft will fly 24 times over the corona layer.
A car-sized spacecraft cost 1.5 billion dollars.
