 Parke has become the closest spacecraft to the sun, and will soon arrive at the perihelion.


BEIJING, Oct. 30 (Reporter Liu Xia) - NASAs Parker Solar Probe reached 26.55 million miles (42.73 million kilometers) from the sun at 1:04 a.m. EDT on Sunday, making it the closest contact with the sun to date, according to NASAs official website. Artificial objects.

The latest record from the sun was set in April 1976 by the Helios 2 probe, developed jointly by Germany and the United States. The spacecraft will continue to break its own record as Parkers solar exploration mission continues, and eventually the closest distance to the sun will be 3.83 million miles, which is expected to be achieved by 2024.

Andy Derisman, the project manager for Parker, said: The Parker Solar Probe has been the closest spacecraft to the sun in just 78 days. For us, this is a moment to be proud of.

In addition, the Parker Solar Probe has broken the record for the fastest spacecraft ever to travel relative to the sun. The previous speed record was 153,454 miles per hour, also set by the Sun God 2 probe in April 1976. The Parker team uses NASAs Deep Space Network (DSN) to regularly measure the precise speed and position of the spacecraft. The DSN sends signals to the spacecraft, which then sends them back to the DSN, allowing the team to determine the speed and position of the spacecraft based on the timing and characteristics of the signals.

On the 31st, Parker will begin its first meeting with the sun, which will continue to fly closer and closer to the surface of the sun until it reaches its first perihelion (closest to the sun), about 10:28 p.m. EDT on November 5. Although the spacecraft will face the suns scorching and harsh radiation environment, it will provide unprecedented close observation of the sun and help us understand the phenomena that have plagued scientists for decades, such as why the corona is much hotter than the suns surface, how the suns magnetic field is generated, and uncover the solar wind.
