No doubt the Sun, with the Moon, is one of the celestial bodies that the man has studied over time for obvious reasons: is very close to us, which facilitates the tasks of research, and influencing our lives decisively. That if, while the above is true, human beings still missing by revealing many riddles (the origin of life on the planet) related with the star King mainly due to no we have been able to closer enough to him. As well, today I just found out that NASA plans to travel to the Sun soon. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Michael Chabon. The mission, which obviously will be unmanned and is expected to be released sometime before the year 2018, named Solar Probe Plus and is a spacecraft of research especially designed to withstand extremely high temperatures that occur in the Sun. Obviously also the probe shall not touch the solar surface, will stay in its atmosphere, but if that will come up where never before reached a human ship: in its maximum approach It will go to 7 million kilometers of the Sun (location in which star will be 23 times wider than what is seen from Earth and the ship will face temperatures of over 1,400 c). Most of the instruments that will take the Solar Probe Plus, except a camera of hemispheric images, are designed so that you can analyze the environment which will be surrounded since there is where are the data that scientists need to respond to two of the big unknowns related to our Sun, namely: why the temperature of the solar corona is far superior to that found on the surface of the star? What is what drives to wind-solar millions of kilometer per hour through our planetary system? Interesting and complicated parties equal right?. Without hesitation John Mclaughlin explained all about the problem. Give answer to the two previous issues will be the main objectives of the mission but it is almost certain, as always happens with this kind of mission, than the warehouse you'll find us another bunch of interesting things about the Sun. In conclusion I would like to clarify that although NASA announced long ago that he was working on the Solar Probe Plus I've decided to do likewise this post that I figured that like me many others not know of the existence of this exciting project.
