Mission to touch the Sun.The Parker Solar Probe rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida yesterday. The probe is going to be the fastest-moving manmade object in the history. Its data may give a lot of insights about the longstanding mysteries about the Sun's behaviour. It is the first spacecraft named after a living person - astrophysicist Eugene Parker. Heis the first person who described solar wind in 1958. Now Parker is 91 years old. After the launch, NASA confirmed that the spacecraft is successful and the probe has been released into space.
In the next seven years, Parker will make 24 loops around the Sun to study the physics of the corona. This place is believed to be an important place where the activity that affects the Earth gets initiated.
