NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission that launched Aug. 12, 2018 from Space Launch Complex 37 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida will revolutionize our understanding of the Sun. The Parker Solar Probe spacecraft will travel through the Sun?s atmosphere, closer to the surface than any spacecraft before it, facing brutal heat and radiation conditions ? and ultimately providing humanity with the closest-ever observations of a star. This is a look at the moments leading up to T-Zero for NASA?s mission to “touch” the Sun.
