NASA will launch a probe Parker

Parker space probe reaches record distance of 6.1 million kilometers from the solar surface and outer atmosphere of the star.

In the next few weeks, NASA will launch one of its projects – the Parker probe, which is closer to the surface of the Sun. On Friday, July 20, reports Science Alert.

So, the space probe reaches record distance of 6.1 million kilometers from the solar surface and outer atmosphere, called the solar corona.

“The crown, through which will fly the Parker Solar Probe, has an extremely high temperature, but very low density. Think of the difference between the way put your hand in a hot oven or in a pot of boiling water. In the oven, your hand will be able to withstand a much higher temperature because there is less density of space. Similarly happens and on the Sun corona is less dense, so the spacecraft interacts with fewer particles and does not receive a huge amount of heat,” said engineer Suzanne darling.

Within this mission is planned to study the mechanism of the solar wind, stream of ionized particles which are emitted from the corona of the Sun into space at a speed of 300-1200 km/s. the particles may be mixed with the Earth’s magnetic field and cause geomagnetic storms.

On the probe set up a protective screen, which allows the aircraft to operate in the outer layers of the solar atmosphere. According to scientists, the screen is heated to 1371,11°C, while the temperature of the probe will be no more than 29,4°C.

Recall, the Sun found a new black hole.

Previously, scientists found that will after the death of the Sun.
