About this Item
- The Science of Space: Heliophysics & the Parker Solar Probe
- NASA's Alex Young discussed how the Sun interacts at the largest and smallest scales, from complicated motions at the particle level to giant eruptions thousands of times bigger than the Earth. NASA studies the Sun and how its constant outflow of magnetic fields and solar material influences the very nature of space, the atmospheres of planets, and human technology. Heliophysics missions explore places never before visited--traveling through pockets of intense radiation, interstellar space, and right into the Sun itself. NASA's Parker Solar Probe will be the first spacecraft in history to fly through the Sun's inner corona.
