Nasa’s Parker solar probe mission to the touch the sun is itself crazy thing to hear. Nasa launched their most ambitious project on Aug 12th from Kennedy space centre Florida.

The Parker Solar Probe will enter a stable orbit around the Huge nuclear fireball Aka Sun that gives us all life and Heat(Kidding) sample its radiation from less than 4 million miles away.

This is the first Mission Named after a Living researcher Eugene Parker.

About Eugene Parker:

He is the one who proposed a theory that stars give off energy. He is hugely influenced and studied many things about sun and stars.
This mission is all about making thesis to real practical.

Dr Eugene Parker reaction to Nasa’s Parker Probe Launch:

 

This is how it will reach Sun:

The goal of Nasa’s parker solar probe:

NASA robotic spacecraft is planned to reach outer corona of the Sun and that’s the goal. This is the first man-made object that will be reaching so so close to the Sun.
It will approach sun as close as within 8.86 solar radii (6.2 million kilometres or 3.85 million miles) from the “surface” (photosphere) of the Sun and will travel, as fast as 700,000 km/h (430,000 mph) closest to Fireball aka sun.

Why Sun For Research:

Parker solar probe’s main mission is to study the structure and dynamics of the Sun’s coronal plasma and magnetic field,
The energy flow that heats the solar corona that in turn causes the solar wind, The mechanisms that accelerate and transport energetic particles. Ultimate Mission is how planets are created how the sun is responsible for Life on earth and many more Unearthed questions soon they will be answered.

How it will Survive the Heat of Sun:

Solar Probe is almost a car-sized carbon sandwich because it is covered by superheated carbon composite on the outside and a carbon foam.
The probe is designed to withstand temperatures outside the spacecraft of about 1,370 °C (2,500 °F). Because there is no water vapour gas to heat up Sun heat is dry heat So this the reason Parker covered with Carbon composite and a carbon foam.

The solar probe is Powered by AI:


Yes, Solar probe is Powered by AI because it is hard to reach the sun and to reach sun it will make 24 passes through the corona.
During this times it is hard to send communication’s with earth, So NASA implemented AI as it’s covered by sensors to Rectify anomalies.

Latest Update on Solar Probe

“On October 3, Parker Solar Probe successfully completed its flyby of Venus at a distance of about 1,500 miles during the first Venus gravity assist of the mission,” NASA said in a statement late on Wednesday. “These gravity assists will help the spacecraft tighten its orbit closer and closer to the Sun over the course of the mission,” it added.

On 29 the October 2018, the spacecraft surpassed the current record of 26.55 million miles from the Sun’s surface at about 1:04 p.m. EDT making it the closest human-made satellite. The previous record was set in April 1976 by the Helios 2 spacecraft.

The mission is scheduled to last seven years. We’ll update this post Whenever solar probe hits it’s Mark.

The First Thing I should and must say Is “JAI HO”

An Indian scientist (Rongmon Bordoloi) who hails from Assam, has become the first person to figure when black hole’s “last big meal” took place. He is now leading a team at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who found that the black hole “ate its last big meal about 6 million years ago when it consumed a large clump of infalling gas.”

Bordoloi was among 17 scientists who were selected for NASA’s Hubble fellowship in 2015. The man, who belongs to Jorhat in Assam, has a PhD in Physics from ETH Zurich.

In a press release, Bordoloi said,

“For the first time, we have traced the motion of cool gas throughout one of the bubbles, which allowed us to map the velocity of the gas and calculate when the bubbles formed. What we find is that a very strong, energetic event happened 6 million to 9 million years ago. It may have been a cloud of gas flowing into the black hole, which fired off jets of matter, forming the twin lobes of hot gas seen in X-ray and gamma-ray observations.”
