We have been a bit long since we heard Parker Solar Probes, a piece of blistered liquid metal that went through the NASA spacecraft. A spatial update suggests that all systems are used to perform Sun-bound tests, and it has just begun in the 24 planned stellar orbits.
Parker Solar Probe completed the first orbital route around the Sun to reach the point of his spirit, that is, the farthest distance of our stars, January 19, 2019, NASA announced. Once again, he goes to his own ends, the probe is expected to reach the next perihelion, near the nearest Sun's orbit, on April 4, 2019.
Parker Solar Probe's 161-day milestone arrived at the mission and seems to be reflecting so far.
"The first orbital lightter and wonderful," said Andy Driesman, director of the Parker Solar Probe project, in a statement. "We have learned how the spacecraft works and react to the solar environment, and I am proud that the projections of the group are very specific."
Currently, NASA uses the Deep Space Network, the giant terrestrial antennas and the space-based device networks to design space-aided devices. Until now, the probe has transmitted 17 Gigabytes of precious scientific data to the Earth, NASA said, but in April it will not recover the content of the first days of the sun. The spacecraft collects unprecedented data through its disciplinary tools to help scientists learn more about the Sun's crown and move stars and star stars to great stars at high speeds.
The scientist Nour Raouafi said that the data we have seen so far has mentioned "many things we have not seen before and new discoveries". Parker Solar Probe, said in the statement, "is making the promise of the mission revealing the mysteries of our Solar".
An important milestone arrived a few weeks ago, when Parker introduced his entire operational status or Phase E, New Year. The probes work on all the systems in line and in accordance with specifications, NASA reported.

The Parker team will be able to place the sites in the perihelion of April, the sun will have a distance between 24.1 million kilometers (15 million million) to establish a new record for the human-built object. On October 29, 2018, Parker set a record of proximity to Sun's surface 42.7 million kilometers (26.5 million miles) and transformed the old record of Helios 2 zoning. In June 2025, the nearest distance to the 2025 storm is expected, and it will be 6.16 miles (3.83 million miles) from the sun. Thanks to this proximity, Parker will demand an entire orbit of about 88 days and will arrive at a speed of 430,000 km / week from Philadelphia to Washington, DC, in a single second.
To prepare the April periwinkle, Mission Controllers are making storage space by deleting Earth-transmitted files and updating the location and updated browsing information, including a sequence of automatic procedures that keep one month's probe open.
Godspeed your second trip around Sun, Parker probe![NASA]
