The main objective of an unmanned probe to explore the crown. It’s an unusual atmosphere around the Sun.

A unique device can come close to the solar surface at a close distance of 6 million kilometers. For comparison, the distance from the earth to the Sun is about 150 million kilometers.

The previous record established space device “Нelios-2”. In 1976, he stayed for 43 million kilometres from the red-hot sun.

NASA hopes that the Parker Solar Probe will set a new record for the distance studying stars, all of earth machines prior to that they were seven times farther from the sun.
