Recently the first human object to reach the sun was launched, the Parker solar probe is a spacecraft that will fly over the sun’s corona for the first time. This first man-made instrument for touching the sun consists of a shield to prevent it from melting. Will this first human object be successful when it is in the sun?
The Parker probe as the first human object to reach the sun will study its mysteries.
Making constant overflights around the sun, approaching incessantly and continuously has reached the moments to reach a distance of about 24.8 million kilometers from the solar area.
So far the researchers in charge of this mission have received data and images of this approach thanks to WISPR Wide-field Imager for Solar Probe, which is translated into Spanish as Wide Field Image Generator for the solar probe, where it was possible to observe the first image very close to the corona of the sun and the extension of plasma that surrounds the star.
In addition to WISPR, the parker probe will have 3 other instruments, such as the Energetic Particle Instrument-Hi (EPI-Hi), both of which come from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the California agency. The WISPR is the exclusive camera aboard the spacecraft which has 2 telescopes with very wide field of vision.
Analyzing the mysteries of the sun by the Parker probe
Among the special tasks of the instruments of the Parker probe is to analyze the mystery surrounding the solar particles at high speed that fall on the earth whose speed is very close to the speed of light, this will be able to measure more accurately the predictions of the climate of space.
On the other hand, with the images that can be captured of the solar corona, its internal heliosphere, solar wind, shock waves, and other structures of the sun’s corona, through all these investigations, scientists will be able to prevent damage to satellites, possible space missions and astronauts that are placed in orbit, or are already orbiting, they will be able to know what causes or what rarity or phenomena are those that interrupt radio communications, in addition to being able to analyze the conditions that the sun possesses that until now are unknown.
A scientist in charge of the Parker mission named Nour Raouafi, has said, this probe provides us with the essential conditions to understand the phenomena of the sun that have not had an answer in years, we will not know that this research will provide us until we obtain all the necessary data or we can observe novelties, the mission itself is an explorer, the possibilities of new discoveries are many.
