NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Touches SUN’s Atmosphere, Solar Space History Created

NASA's PARKER SOLAR PROBE touches the Sun's atmosphere creating space history as it touches Sun's corona. Parker first crossed the rough uneven boundary between solar atmosphere and outgoing solar wind 8 miles from the Sun's center. According to the reports the spacecraft dipped in and out of the corona at least three times. It was so quick that it covered approximately 62 miles/100 km in one second. During the spacecraft's 7th encounter with the sun in April, the Parker probe sailed through corona. This data took few months to arrive and several more months to confirm. These details were provided on 14th December at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in New Orleans.
