Dr. Eugene Parker (seated), a pioneer in heliophysics, watched as NASA’s Parker Solar Probe launched at 3:31 a.m. EDT on Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018. This was the first agency mission named for a living person.

2018年8月12日星期日,美国东部时间凌晨3:31,太阳物理学先驱尤金·帕克博士(坐着)观看了美国宇航局的帕克太阳探测器发射。这是第一个以在世者命名的NASA任务。

In 2021, the mission performed the closest-ever observations of a star as it traveled through the Sun’s atmosphere, called the corona. The probe relies on measurements and imaging to revolutionize our understanding of the corona and the Sun-Earth connection.

2021粘,该任务完成了对太阳大气层(称为日冕)有史以来最接近的观测。该探测器依靠测量和成像来彻底改变我们对日冕和日地联系的理解。
