NASA shows how a Solar Probe (Parker Solar Probe) approaches our star. NASA plans to accept applications until April 27, 2018, to deliver your name ship to the Sun
NASA representatives have a new idea. Now until April 27, you can send a request online with your name. Together with the Solar probe it will go straight to the Sun!
At the end of summer, the probe will be launched from Cape Canaveral (Florida). Overcoming a path of 4 million miles, he will be closer to the star than any other apparatus. Heating will reach 1,300 ° C. Previously, materials for such a dangerous journey were not available.
Interestingly, the actor William Shatner, who played James Kirk on Star Trek, is a NASA mentor for this program.
