7:27 am
a half centimeters thick they say it will protect the equipment that will be surveilling the sun as it sweeps through its corona or outer outlets for the real kill himself about twenty five hundred degrees fahrenheit which are not going to do today but we are going to get it under degrees there and i want to feel like. i see that in the temperature of the corona is just one of the counter intuitive mysteries that the park a probe hopes to solve why is it so much hotter than the sun's core several hundred times hotter science would suggest that the further away from the sun surface the cooler the atmosphere should be the probe is named after eugene parker who formulated the theory of so no wind will be present to watch the moon for the spacecraft named in his own. in one hundred fifty eight he theorized that a flow of particles accelerated into space from the sun and that proved to be true but scientists still don't know how this phenomenon occurs theoretically such particles should cool down and dissipate the further from the sun they get not
7:28 am
speed up so the wind streams could impact satellites in space and g.p.s. radio waves and electrical grids on earth they also cause rural when they crash into the earth's magnetic field and the deflected the probe will begin its first approach to the sun in november as part of its seventy a mission we will go high. and i think it's being before we are in that three million degree plasma region in the corona well gradually will close it will take set of seven giant steps closer to the sun until we're in that final region and as it makes those dives towards the sun surface but paulk or so the probe will eventually become befalls just object ever created by humankind. we've been speaking to terry malick his and astro genesis space dot com and he describes why it's so difficult for nasa this is something that's never been done before you know nasa is going to take a spacecraft and launch it into the outer edges of the star that we that we all see
7:29 am
every day and it's something that you know the hope to kind of uncover some of these mysteries of the sun that we just still even after decades and hundreds of years of observing it don't fully understand why this outer fringe this corona of the sun is so much hotter than the actual surface of the sun is this you know lingering mystery that scientists hope this mission could answer the first big challenge is the loss you know everything does have to go right for this mission to lift off only has a few more days beyond that and maybe another week or so in their launch window to try it once that it gets off the ground it's straight to the sun as your course what i mentioned earlier this is supposed to be the fastest spacecraft ever it's going to loop around venus to supercharge its speed as it approaches the sun and then it has to kind of just towed it through that atmosphere as as fast as possible so it doesn't cook it has that special heat shield made out of carbon fiber foam to kind of keep her room temperature atmosphere around its instruments while it's
