American space agency NASA planning to launch a spaceship worth $1.5 billion which will be a historic journey toward the Sun. The scientists offering the closest-ever view of  the most shining and enigmatic star.

This will be the first aircraft to fly through sun’s atmosphere after the Parker Solar Probe blasts off from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The researchers expect the corona works will help them to study about dangerous space weather storms and can disrupt the power grid on Earth.

 

The spaceship is unmanned and which named after Eugene Parker, the 91-year-old pioneering solar astrophysicist. The US space agency marked this is the first mission to “touch the Sun.” The probe will remove actually from at a distance of 6.16 million kilometres above the Sun’s surface and the Sun-facing side will endure temperatures of about 1,370 degrees Celsius.

Alex Young, a solar scientist at NASA said:

“It’s of fundamental importance for us to be able to predict space weather much the way we predict weather on Earth,”

The heat shield covering protected the spaceship will keep it close to room temperature, about 29C. The mystery of why the corona reaches temperatures of up to 10 million degrees Fahrenheit will solve by the Parker Solar Probe. The most dynamic and magnetically active star remained unreachable for the scientists for many years. Researchers seeking the mystery of the acceleration of the solar wind and much more and this journey expected to provide answers to many questions.
