Parker Solar Probe Spacecraft

Today, we have to talk about NASA's robotic spacecraft Parker Solar Probe. This robotic spacecraft was launched by NASA in 2018 to explore the sun's outer corona tapes and to explore it. Let's get some information about the Parker solar probe.

The Parker Solar Probe is within 9.86 solar radiations from the center of the Sun. So, this spacecraft will be seen by approaching 690,000 km / h or 0.064% light speed by 2025, this spacecraft was launched on August 12, 2018. And its manufacturing has been done by the Applied Physics Laboratory. The cost of launching Parker Solar Probe is $ 1.5 billion. This spacecraft predicts the important aspects of solar physics.

On October 29, 2018, Parker Solar Probe is known as the largest spacecraft created for the Sun. Parker Solar Probe Concept envisioned the Solar Orbiter project in 1990. This spacecraft was helped by gravity from Jupiter, due to which its polar orbit could be descended directly into the direction of the Sun. First of all, the name of this spacecraft named "solar wind" was given the name of Parker Solar Probe in the honor by the Astrophysicist Eugene Parker.

Parker Solar Probe is considered to be the first spacecraft to fly into low solar corona. This spacecraft evaluates the sun's coronal plasma and the structure of the field and its mobility. Due to this, the spacecraft inspires solar wind by heating the sun's energy and solar corona. By system solar shield of the spacecraft, the Parker Protects Parker Solar Probe from the Sun's Heavy Heat and Radiation. The Sun's radiation is approximately 650 kw/m2 by the perihelion phenomenon on this spacecraft. Due to which it has 475 times the magnitude of Earth's orbit. The Parker Solar Probe is mounted on the sun side. It has a mount of 2.3 meters and 11.4 cm thick and made from a reinforced carbon mixture, because it retains the outside temperature of the spacecraft.

According to project scientists Nicky Fox, Parker Solar Probe is known as the most autonomous spacecraft to fly to the present time. The secondary array on this spacecraft uses pumped-fluid cooling to maintain the solar panels and operating temperature of the instrumentation. In each orbit of this spacecraft, the scientific phase of the underlying part of 0.25 AU is kept. So that inside will be activated and automated observations will be done. The main purpose of the Parker Solar probe is to trace the flow of energy, to boost the heat of the corona and the solar wind.

This spacecraft determines the formation and mobility of magnetic fields on the source of solar wind. This spacecraft's orbital period has been reduced by approximately 88 or 89 days and allowed to move closer to the sun. Parker Solar Probe provides statistical surveys of external corona. The solar shield temperature of this spacecraft is approximately 1400 C. This spacecraft has to use seven Venus Flybys in seven years to gradually reduce its orbit. This will provide new data through activity on the spacecraft, and important contributions are made in the ability to predict weather events that affect life on Earth. Parker Solar Probe is found to provide an insight on a definitive link in the connection of the Sun and the Earth.
