J & The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was in control of Parker Solar Probe, who had almost touched the sun recently. Last week, the distance of the NASA spacecraft was very close to the sun and the speed of the trip increased.
Until finally, NASA carried out an investigation last week BGR, Friday (11/09/2018) finally after data collection is completed. NASA reports that Probe gave this signal in order.
Interestingly, this is the first big test for Parker and his own set of safety management features, and it seems like everything is functioning properly.
"Parker Solar Probe is designed to protect itself and its precious content during this approach and close, without our control of the Earth and now we know it works," said Thomas Zurbuchen of NASA
He added that "Parker is the culmination of six decades of scientific progress, and now we have realized our first visit to humans to our planet, which will have implications not only for the Earth, but also for a deeper understanding of our universe."

NASA knows what an intense environment Parker needs to deal with driving around the sun, and designed it to be able to withstand exceptional temperatures.The spacecraft is equipped with a thick heat shield that protects the back of the charged device.
But it can only do the job if directed in the right direction. To ensure the shield remains at the right angle, a series of sensors placed around the tip of the probe will automatically keep it in the correct direction.
For its first operation, NASA said that the plane had a temperature of about 820 degrees C. It's pretty amazing, but it's nothing compared to the 2,500 degrees that will be faced when Parker will be closer to Earth for the next half or so decade.
