How did the earth come to be? NASA’s new spacecraft will open secrets
The US space agency NASA is going to send a new spacecraft to Mars for further studies. The spacecraft will study the structure inside the red planet in depth. Which will lift the veil from many mysteries about the origin of other planets and the moon. This is the first time the spacecraft will be launched from the west coast of the United States, NASA said. Most U.S. interplanetary missions will fly from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Which is on the east coast of the country. The historic interplanetary launch will be the first from May 5 Road Vondenberg Air Force Base.
The 57.3-meter-long United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket will be an Interior Exploration, Geodesy and Heat Transport (Insight) lander using NASA’s Seismic Investigation that will inspect the Alesium Planicia area in the northern hemisphere of Mars. Insight Landers A study of the structure inside Mars will reveal how the planets, including the Earth and the Moon, were formed.
NASA in preparation for approaching the sun
The US space agency NASA is going to launch its Parker Solar Probe in July in the first human preparation to get closer to the sun. The Parker Solar Probe will be sent from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida to Launch Complex-37. The two-hour launch process will open at 4 a.m. on July 31 and then open shortly before 4 a.m. every day until August 19, the U.S. agency said in a statement. After departing for space, the spacecraft will directly reach the corona of the sun. Which is very close to the sun. Where so far no man-made object could reach. The corona is 3.8 million miles from the surface of the sun.
NASA has successfully launched the Parker Solar Probe to reach the sun. The spacecraft will unveil the mysteries of the Sun’s outer atmosphere and travel seven years to try to figure out its effects on the weather in space. NASA wrote a blog two hours after the launch. The spacecraft was said to be in good condition and running on an automatic system. The Parker Solar Probe has embarked on a campaign to touch the sun.
“This mission is truly important in the first human journey toward a star that will have an impact not only on Earth but also in our universe,” said Thomas Jurbuka, a collaborator with NASA’s Directorate of Science Expeditions. However, an important question arises as to whether the spacecraft will melt as it approaches the sun.
To reach the sun, the spacecraft has to go through a temperature of 1377 degrees Celsius. It has a thermal protection system. Protecting spacecraft and equipment from the scorching heat of the sun will create a four-and-a-half inch thick shield made of carbon.
However, NASA clarified that there are many different scientific rules and logics behind not melting a spacecraft. In the language of science, temperature and heat are two different things. How hot any object will be, depends on how much temperature and how many things are in the surrounding atmosphere. If the atmosphere is empty the object will heat up less. There are also very few objects in space. So the spacecraft will be relatively much warmer. Not so much what happens as ordinary people understand.
