New Views of Sun: 2 Missions Will Go Closer to Our Star Than Ever Before

05.16.2018
NASA's Parker Solar Probe and ESA's Solar Orbiter will take us closer to the Sun than we've ever been before. If Earth were scaled down to sit at one end of a gridiron football field, with the Sun at the other end, Parker Solar Probe would make it to the 4-yard line. Solar Orbiter would reach the 27, both beating a 1970s record held by Helios B.
