Probe Parker went to explore space

NASA successfully sent on the ULA rocket probe "Parker" (Parker Solar Probe) to explore the cosmos. The Delta IV Heavy rocket was launched at 3:31 local time (EDT) from space launch complex 37 at a U.S. air force base at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

After four minutes of flight, a series of rapid events: the Delta IV engines were disconnected and separated, the first stage separated from the second, the main engine of the second stage came into operation, were then dumped fairing payload.

solar probe went to the Sun

After running "Parker" , will align the protective screen and continue your journey over the next three months, welcoming the warmth of the Sun and protected from the cold vacuum of space. He then starts to carry out its scientific mission.

On Board the probe are important tools that will allow him to study the interaction of particles in the solar corona, to study their direction and speed. The main attraction of the probe — its large heat shield. It will allow you to keep tools on Board at normal temperature, while the probe itself will fly through the hot corona of the star.

For seven years the planned duration of the flight spacecraft will encircle the star in its orbit 24 times. At each round it will be closer to the Sun and to collect samples of the solar wind, to study the corona and serve as the eyes for our scientists.
