NASA Will Launch Parker Solar Probe a Mission to Touch the Sun Early in August

About a few months ago we have informed you about the mission Parker Solar Probe, better to say a mission to touch the Sun. Early on August Parker Solar Probe near Cape Canaveral, Florida will launch. No earlier than Aug. 6, 2018, a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy will thunder to space carrying the car-sized spacecraft, which will study the Sun closer than any human-made object ever has.

Top 10 Known Largest Exoplanets in The Universe

Planets in the Universe are countless that always need exploring. There are a lot of undiscovered objects in the Universe that it is not enough an entire life for humans to discover almost half of them. As indicated Stephen Hawking “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special”. As you know the known largest planet in our Solar System is Jupiter, it is approximately 143,000 kilometers (about 89,000 miles) wide at its equator. Let’s find out more about largest exoplanets in our wonderful Universe. These planets are the largest exoplanets ever discovered and it will probably take a long time until astronomers find a bigger one. Accordingly, we suggest you to enjoy top 10 largest exoplanets in the Universe.

The Aims of Psyche Mission to a Metal World NASA Explains

The Aims of Psyche Mission to a Metal World: NASA Explains

The Psyche mission is a journey to an exclusive metal asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. NASA explains what makes the asteroid Psyche exclusive and unique is that it appears to be the exposed nickel-iron core of an early planet, one of the building blocks of our solar system. The Psyche mission is going to leave Earth in 2022. Although the original plan was supposed to launch in 2023, NASA has changed the timeline and is expected to start its mission in 2022. Observations from Earth hint that the 124-mile-wide (200 kilometers) world is 95 percent metal, just like the core of a rocky planet.

NASA Inviting You Journey to the Sun with Parker Solar Probe

NASA is inviting you from all over the world to submit your names online to be placed on a microchip aboard NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission which will launch in summer 2018. This was the first time a NASA spacecraft was named after a living person, honoring physicist Eugene Parker. At closest approach, Parker Solar Probe will be touching around the sun at approximately 450,000 miles per hour. That is fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in one second. The mission will travel through the Sun’s atmosphere, facing brutal heat and radiation conditions and your name will go along for the ride.

10 Awesome Facts About The Sun

The Sun is the star at the center of our solar system and is responsible for the Earth’s climate and weather. It is an almost perfect sphere with a difference of just 10km in diameter between the poles and the equator. The average radius of the Sun is 695,508 km (109.2 x that of the Earth) of which 20–25% is the core. Its gravity holds the solar system together, keeping everything from the biggest planets to the smallest particles of debris in its orbit. Electric currents in the Sun generate a magnetic field that is carried out through the solar system by the solar wind. The connection and interactions between the Sun and Earth drive the seasons, ocean currents, weather, climate, radiation belts and aurorae. There are billions of stars like our Sun scattered across the Milky Way Galaxy. Today we have prepared 10 awesome facts about the Sun that will arouse your curiosity.
