Delta IV Heavy launches NASA’s Parker Solar Probe

US space agency Nasa today 12th August 2018 launched its mission to send a satellite closer to the Sun than any before.

The “Parker Solar Probe” rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The probe is set to become the fastest-moving manmade object in history. Its data promises to crack longstanding mysteries about the Sun’s behaviour.

It is the first space craft to be named after a living person – astrophysicist Eugene Parker, 91, who first described solar wind in 1958.
