Thread: Parker Solar Probe

  1. #1

    Default Parker Solar Probe

    Named after the astrophysicist who predicted the discovery of the solar wind, the probe will travel closer to the Sun than anything we have ever sent.

    Up close and personal? Sure, why not?
    NASA seems to think that until we get closer, we just miss too much (sounds like a relationship)
    It may even have some impact on predicting/anticipating solar storm for severity and possible effects here on Earth.
    Slated for launch in early July I look forward to the data/pics :)

    I'm sure Parker deserves some recognition, but this thing should be called Icarus.
