NASA has announced the publication of four new studies detailing data collected by its Park Solar Probe, the spacecraft that is moving increasingly closer to our blazing hot star. According to the space agency, information gathered by its solar probe is revealing entirely new details about the Sun, ultimately paving the way for a rewrite of the models used to predict space weather, among other things.
The Parker Solar Probe is a specially crafted vessel designed to operate in close proximity to the Sun. The spacecraft can withstand insanely high temperatures, enabling it to gather unprecedented data on our star and its effects on our planet. The four newly published studies detail findings that are the direct result of two record-breaking Sun flybys successfully performed by the Parker probe.
