Our Sun as a Glowing Pumpkin: NASA


The first spacecraft launched by NASA, Parker Solar Probe, launched by NASA, flew to outer space of the Sun. The space shuttle ‘Corona’ took magnetic samples and particles there, the American Space Agency said on Tuesday.

The NASA probe (parker solar probe) has successfully flown into the solar system or corona, the US space agency has announced in a new and vital phase.

As for the space station, the solar probe flew between 15 meters (about 6.5 million miles) from the surface of the Sun and took a sample of particles and magnetic fields playing there. According to NASA, it is the first time the spacecraft has “touched the sun”.

Scientists say the Parker Solar Probe discovered this on April 28, but they made the announcement only after data analysis confirmed it.

In a statement, NASA said the findings would help scientists discover essential information about the Sun and its effect on our solar system.

The probe rotates around the solar system, making its way along the path.

NASA launched the Parker probe in 2018 to make a recurring and imminent passing of the Sun.  The spacecraft moves at an astonishing speed of over 500,000 km/h, so you can get in and out quickly to avoid heat damage.

In one of its flybys, the probe found magnetic resonance in the Sun, called switchbacks closest to the Sun. After investigating the solar system, scientists determined if the switchbacks came from the solar system.

The solar parker probe was launched in its 2018 campaign, taking three years to fly in the solar corona. The study collected samples of particles, solar wind, and the flow of particles from the Sun that could affect the earth.

As per NASA, in 2019, a solar probe found that magnetic fields in the solar system, called switchbacks, are numerous near the Sun, and as the plane is very close to the Sun’s surface, investigations have been able to pinpoint their origin, which is the location of the Sun.

Nasa congratulated this on official writing. “The Parker solar probe that touches the sun” is a milestone in solar science and a truly remarkable feat, “said Thomas Zurbuchen, director of the scientific equipment unit at NASA headquarters in Washington.” in our star and teaches us more about the stars in the universe”.

According to NASA, the Sun is not as strong as the earth, and it is instead made up of solar elements bound to the star by gravity. The cause of solar wind is the pressure and heat that push the material away from the Sun to the point where the grip of gravity and other forces is weakened.

The fact, dubbed the Alfven critical surface, marks the end of the solar system and the beginning of solar flares, Nasa said in a post.

Parker will continue to collect additional data in the coming years. With this success, we can see many such activities in the future that can hopefully help unlock more one-star secrets in our solar system.


In just nine hours since it was posted, the post has garnered more than 8.7k likes, and the numbers are growing fast. The Centre also encouraged people to post various comments.

“This is so amazing,” wrote an Instagram user. “Wow, that is quite an achievement! Well, done, and congrats, NASA,” posted another. “OMG! This is so crazy,” expressed a third.

The space agency also took to YouTube to share a video describing the incident in detail:
