NASA’s First Mission to Sun: Car-sized probe is set to launch in August: Well, reports are coming that NASA is scheduled to launch mankind’s first mission to the Sun which is going to be a car-sized probe that will swoop to within 4 million miles of the solar surface. Also, the sources are saying that this new probe will be facing the heat and radiation like no spacecraft before. Some reports are suggesting that the Solar Probe which is expected to take off no earlier than August 6 aboard United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy, will study the Sun closer than any human-made object ever has.
Also, the sources are saying that this mission is going to be important because it will provide us with a lot of unknown information about the Sun and its nearby surrounding. Even the Alex Young who is the associate director for science in the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in the US, said, “We’ve been studying the Sun for decades, and now we’re finally going to go where the action is”.
Some reports are saying that this will make World a more knowledgeable place and these types of mission are important and even we all know that our Sun is far more complex than meets the eye. Rather than the steady, unchanging disk, it seems to human eyes, the Sun is a dynamic and magnetically active star. You all may know that already, the Sun’s atmosphere constantly sends magnetized material outward, enveloping our solar system far beyond the orbit of Pluto and influencing every world along the way.
Now, this mission will not just increase our knowledge of Sun, even it will lead us towards the far beyond our imagination. Coils of magnetic energy can burst out with light and particle radiation that travel through space and create temporary disruptions in our atmosphere, sometimes garbling radio and communications signals near Earth.
