triangle Script


According to Gizmodo, NASA's historic mission to the Sun reached a couple milestones on the same day. Back in August, NASA launched the Parker Solar Probe towards the Sun for a mission to study our solar system's star. Lifting off on August 12th, the spacecraft traversed over half the distance to the Sun by late October. During the afternoon on Oct. 29th, the Parker probe was about 26 million miles from the solar surface. The last a spacecraft to get that close to the Sun was the Helios 2, in April 1976. But on the day the Parker probe set a new record for the closest spacecraft to the Sun, it also began the first stage of it's mission.
