Catching Up with Parker Solar Probe | Exploratorium
The sun gives us light and heat and keeps our planetary orbit in place—but there's so much we don't know about it. NASA's Parker Solar Probe is currently orbiting the sun to gather data and learn more. Join Eric Christian, a research scientist on the Parker Solar Probe mission, and learn more about what information the probe is bringing us and what we can learn from it.
Sounds of the Solar Wind from NASA's Parker Solar Probe
There’s a wind that emanates from the Sun. It blows not like a soft whistle but like a hurricane’s scream. Made of electrons, protons and heavier ions, the solar wind courses through the solar system at roughly 1 million mph (1.6 million kph), barreling over everything in its path. Yet through the wind’s roar, NASA’s Parker Solar Probe hears the small chirps, squeaks and rustles that hint at the origin of this mysterious and ever-present wind. The spacecraft’s FIELDS instrument can eavesdrop on the electric and magnetic fluctuations caused by plasma waves. The Parker Solar Probe it can “hear” when the waves and particles interact with one another, recording frequency and amplitude information about these plasma waves that scientists could then play as sound waves. And it results in some striking sounds.

Solar probe touches the sun
Launched in 2018, NASA’s Parker Solar Probe spacecraft, with instruments developed and built by UC Berkeley, has now travelled closer to the sun than any other mission in history, actually penetrating the sun’s atmosphere, to investigate highly charged magnetic field. Now, that data has allowed solar physicists to map the source of a major component of the solar wind that continually peppers Earth’s atmosphere, while revealing strange magnetic field reversals that could be accelerating these particles toward our planet. These accelerated particles interact with Earth’s magnetic field, generating the colorful northern and southern lights but also potentially damaging the electrical grid and telecommunications networks on the surface, threatening orbiting satellites and perhaps endangering astronauts in space. The more solar physicists understand about the magnetic environment of the sun and how it flings solar wind particles out toward the planets, the better they will be able to predict events to prevent damage. “There was a major space weather event in 1859 that blew out telegraph networks on Earth and one in 1972 that set off naval mines in North Vietnam, just from the electrical currents generated by the solar storm,” said Stuart Bale, a University of California, Berkeley, professor of physics and lead author of an article about new results from the probe’s FIELDS experiment. “We’re much more of a technological society than we were in 1972, the communications networks and the power grid on Earth are extraordinarily complex, so big disturbances from the sun are potentially a very serious thing. If we could predict space weather, we could shut down or isolate parts of the power grid, or shut down satellite systems that might be vulnerable.”

New Science from NASA's Mission to Touch the Sun
Parker Solar Probe - NASA's mission to touch the Sun - has revealed new discoveries about our star. Principal Investigators for some of the mission's instruments share their excitement about this new science.
5 New Discoveries from NASA's Parker Solar Probe
NASA's Parker Solar Probe mission has returned unprecedented data from near the Sun, culminating in new discoveries published on Dec. 4, 2019, in the journal Nature. Among the findings are new understandings of how the Sun's constant outflow of material, the solar wind, behaves. Seen near Earth -- where it can interact with our planet's natural magnetic field and cause space weather effects that interfere with technology -- the solar wind appears to be a relatively uniform flow of plasma. But Parker Solar Probe's observations reveal a complicated, active system not seen from Earth.

How NASA Built the Fastest Spacecraft Ever
Engineers and designers working on the Parker Solar Probe tackled challenges such as size, weight, and extreme heat. Their design combined unique materials and underwent rigorous testing to transform the Probe into a record-breaking spacecraft. This Is Not a Real Explosion, Here’s How Physics Made It Happen - https://youtu.be/OsUCD4wno6g Read More Why Won't Parker Solar Probe Melt?
"In space, the temperature can be thousands of degrees without providing significant heat to a given object or feeling hot. Why? Temperature measures how fast particles are moving, whereas heat measures the total amount of energy that they transfer. Particles may be moving fast (high temperature), but if there are very few of them, they won’t transfer much energy (low heat). Since space is mostly empty, there are very few particles that can transfer energy to the spacecraft." Who is Eugene Parker?
"More than half a century later, the Parker Solar Probe mission will finally be able to provide key observations on Parker’s groundbreaking theories and ideas, which have informed a generation of scientists about solar physics and the magnetic fields around stars. Much of his pioneering work, which has been proven by subsequent spacecraft, defined a great deal of what we know about the how the sun–Earth system interacts." NASA Is Going to The Sun, Here’s Why That’s So Crazy
"From Earth, we can only ever see the corona during a total solar eclipse, which is why it is incredibly difficult to study. Because the density is so low, the corona’s brightness is overpowered by energy coming from the solar surface. As the last layer of the sun’s atmosphere, the corona extends millions of miles into space. Here, temperatures can rise to over one million degrees Celsius which is about 300 times hotter than the photosphere, the lowest layer of the sun’s atmosphere." ____________________ Science In The Extremes ventures to the ends of the earth to bring you pioneering research and innovations that are advancing our civilization and broadening our understanding of the universe.

A Pair of Coronal Holes & a Probe: Solar Storm Shortie 08-14-2018
Be sure to watch to the end for a Parker Solar Probe Dedication!
aurora shows, especially at high latitudes. Two coronal holes are rotating through the Earth-strike zone, which means Earth will be preconditioned for activity! The news for amateur radio operators is not so great, as the last remaining bright region on the Earth-facing Sun rotates to the Sun's backside out of view. Solar flux has dropped and we are back at poor levels for radio propagation on Earth's dayside. Unfortunately, these conditions could easily continue over the next week or more. Learn the details of the coming solar storm, see why GPS users are smiling, and why "CW" for amateur radio operators may be the mode of choice.
