The Parker Solar Probe has now been confirmed by NASA to have "touched the Sun" earlier this year, making it the first spacecraft to do so.
The probe was able to record a video of its journey as it passed within just 3.8 million miles from the surface of the Sun, and the footage is nothing short of incredible.
The video shows the Parker Solar Probe hurtling through space at an astonishing 430,000 mph, and it provides a unique perspective on our closest star. On a mission to unlock some of the solar system's most perplexing secrets, the Parker Solar Probe was lofted into space two months ago. The probe has now reached its goal and recorded footage of its trip.
The tiny probe moved throughout the star's upper atmosphere, taking crucial measurements of its environment.
It even took the time to shoot many photos during its remarkable stunt, which scientists later combined into a stunning movie with the Milky Way peeking out behind a stream of highly energized particles — an extraordinarily close and fascinating look at our star.
Eye of the Storm
The Solar Probe must have experienced quite the adventure as it went through a feature of the Sun's atmosphere known as a pseudostreamer, which are enormous ribbon-like structures that may be seen during solar eclipses.
“Passing through the pseudostreamer was like flying into the eye of a storm,” NASA stated. “Inside the pseudostreamer, conditions quieted, particles slowed, and the number of switchbacks decreased—a significant shift from the frantic barrage of particles that normally assaults the spacecraft in space.”
The Sun's atmosphere contains zig-zag-shaped magnetic edifices called switchbacks, which are the consequence of extreme magnetic explosions occurring inside the Sun's atmosphere.
The Parker probe has recently shown that they're a common feature of the solar wind, not nearly as uncommon as previously thought.
From magnetic field data, solar wind data, and visibly in white-light images, we see evidence of being in the corona, according to Nour Raouafi of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory's Parker Solar Probe project.
The video is spectacular — not just because of the probe's breakneck speed through the Sun's atmosphere, but also owing to its revelation of vast deposits of ice in the solar wind. What it discovered may revolutionize our understanding of the sun.
