Nasa wants to send your name to the Sun

Nasa wants to send your name to the Sun”

Make sure you get your name in before April 27, as that is the last day that the space agency will continue accepting submissions.

NASA is giving people the chance to send their names to the sun aboard its Parker Solar Probe, which will plunge into our star's atmosphere on a quest for science.

Apart from all these, NASA is also inviting people to send their names to the Sun along with this mission. The rocket, about the measure of a little auto, will travel specifically into the Sun's climate around four million miles from the star's surface.

He also explained how the royal-to-be scored an enormous 98.5% on her nose, which he called "almost perfectly shaped". The palace confirmed this in November, after making Meghan and Prince Harry's wedding venue public knowledge.

The names will be written on a microchip which is going to be attached aboard the spacecraft that will travel through the brutal weather conditions, courageous heat and reach the Sun's atmosphere. "This mission will answer questions scientists have sought to uncover for more than six decades", he added.

For scientists, understanding the Sun has been of utmost importance because it is from Sun that our Earth and other planets are formed.

The Parker probe is scheduled to start its journey towards the sun's atmosphere on July 31, coming as close as 4 million miles from its surface. Professor Parker has an vast contribution in the field of heliophysics, especially related to the solar corona and the solar winds.

Walmart adds prepared meals to stores
The retail giant also is re-outfitting a dozen Sam's Club stores into distribution centers for Walmart's online grocery business. The company said it was also selling rotisserie chicken meals in flavors like Thai curry chicken or chicken fried rice.

"Parker Solar Probe is going to help us learn about how the Sun works, how it affects life and technology here on Earth", Shatner said.

Parker is an American solar astrophysicist who worked closely in the 1950's with the concept that stars - including the sun - give off energy.

To perform its investigations, the spacecraft and instruments will be protected from the sun's heat by a 4.5-inch-thick (11.4 cm) carbon-composite shield, which will need to withstand temperatures outside the spacecraft that reach almost 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit (1,371 degrees C). For this situation, given Parker's achievements inside the field, and how firmly adjusted this mission is with his examination, the choice was made to respect him before dispatch, keeping in mind the end goal to attract consideration regarding his critical commitments to heliophysics and space science. Once submitted, the names will be stored on a microchip and will be taken by the spacecraft during the mission.

NBC News says the move was orchestrated by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly. The White House press secretary says President Donald Trump's national security adviser, H.R.

"Parker Solar Probe is, quite literally, the fastest, hottest - and, to me, coolest - mission under the Sun", said project scientist Nicola Fox of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland, US. APL is designing and building the spacecraft and will also operate it.
