Start-up was postponed to Sunday, August.Parker 12 Solar Probe will become the first spacecraft which will be able "to concern" a fiery crown of the Sun. The mission will last seven years. As the mission purpose — to obtain new data on solar activity and to measure parameters of solar winds is reported on the website of NASA. These data will allow scientists to understand better how various processes happening in the Sun influence life on Earth and also to predict large emissions of coronal weight and other serious changes of "space weather". To reach the Sun, the probe uses an orbit of Venus and its gravitation. He seven times will fly by by the planet to come to the necessary course. Parker Solar Probe will approach the Sun on record distance in 3,83 million miles (or 6,16 million kilometers), also he will manage to approach Mercury orbit on distance seven times smaller, than other probes managed it. The device will move with a speed about 700 thousand kilometers per hour. About the Sun he should sustain temperature up to 2,5 thousand degrees Fahrenheit (1377 degrees Celsius) therefore it was covered with a carbon-bearing board 11,4 centimeters thick.
