An incredible photo was taken Parker's solar cell, the official ship's camera NASA, which reached a depth that was never achieved.
Parker's solar cell is an official ship's camera NASA, and in the last few days he has achieved something really historic and that he managed to capture the image.
This vessel, which has a real mission to approach the sun gradually over the next six years, achieved incomprehensible for only 4 months in space.
Therefore, the image that aroused the scientists of the general public after getting into the sun's atmosphere because the ship had not previously reached, 27.1 million kilometers.
Even at this distance an impressive picture of the planet was achieved mercury, which is a clear horizontal line that comes from a star, one of the most ambitious projects that NASA is approaching the sun.
The image corresponds to a combination of multiple photos taken every 12 hours and joined together to get a sharper vision from the same state. Faithful reflection is dark spots that can be observed right next to Mercury, repeating at different times.
"This was necessary because there was enough dust around the solar system, and the" average "images together made the group remove the undesirable" noise "from the dust," he explains. Mashable Russ Howard, Project Manager.
The temperature of this Parker Solar Probe camera is close to 437 ° C and is therefore behind a thick eight-inch thermal shield. At a higher depth it is estimated that temperatures may rise to 1370 ° C.
