NASA's Parker Solar Probe (PSP) also known as The "Sun-sensing spacecraft" broke two records of space exploration on April 29, reaching the point where a spacecraft from Earth was closest to the Sun. with the highest speed of any spacecraft ever built.

 

The latest PSP spacecraft is about 10 million kilometers from the surface of the Sun, with a speed of 150 kilometers per second. This speed can be used to travel around the world in 4 and a half minutes only. It can travel from Earth to the Moon in just 40 minutes.

 

The PSP spacecraft, which departed เข้าเล่นเกม slotxoEarth in 2018, is headed to explore the Sun. By using the method of swinging around Venus 7 times to speed up to be able to orbit the sun a total of 24 times, each time the spacecraft will have an orbit nudged closer to the sun every round.

 

The record breaking comes as the PSP spacecraft orbits the Sun for the eighth time in anticipation of reaching its intended destination. which is the outer atmosphere or corona (Corona) of the sun by 2025

However, NASA's team of scientists piloting the spacecraft say the PSP will continue to accelerate to higher speeds. with plans to soar at speeds of up to 200 kilometers per second Which is faster than the previous record holder, Helios-A. and Helios-B (Helios-A / Helios-B) that was sent to observe the Sun in the 1970s to three times.

 

The PSP's mission is to measure magnetic field data within the coronal atmosphere. and follow the flow of energy within the sun To help scientists understand the process of releasing high-energy particles or the solar wind. It can also solve other mysteries, such as why the outer atmosphere of the Sun is many times hotter than the star's inner atmosphere.
