Solar probe NASA Parker will not be damaged after its first close approach to the Sun, flying Mino star at a distance of about 24 million km.
This was reported by “New time” with reference to the Inverse.
For the next seven years the probe will use the gravity of Venus to close to the Sun.
It is noted that the Apparatus created by the applied physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins, gave the first signal after the rendezvous with the Sun. The received signal indicates that the Parker Solar Probe operates normally and all of his tools work and collect data. But this recording is only the first of many, the promise, the mission Parker. The first phase of convergence will end on 11 November and a few weeks later, the probe will transmit to Earth science data.
“We’re going to approach the Sun closer than ever before. We are not going to do it once, we won’t do it twice – we will do it 24 times, and it’s terrible,” said project Manager Andrew Dresmann.
The most close approach to the Sun is planned for mid-December 2024, when Parker will be at a distance of about 9-10 solar radii (about six million km) from the star.
Using data whose transmission between the earth and the probe takes about 30 minutes, the researchers seek to better understand space weather, such as solar winds. Although the Sun is at a distance of 150 million kilometers, the space weather influences the tools astronauts and people on Earth, distorting the satellite data, including the GPS system.
Recall that Harvard scientists have made an unexpected statement concerning the cosmic body, Mumaw.
