NASA wants to send your name to Sun gives hot ticket of its first mission to touch the star

If you are convinced with Shatner's ways, you can get your name on that chip for free by visiting the NASA "Hot Ticket" site through April 27.

Now, you might think this will lead to a rush of people called things like Al Coholic or Ivanna Tinkle.

Parker Solar Probe will swoop to within 4 million miles of the sun's surface, facing heat and radiation like no spacecraft before it. Launching in 2018, Parker Solar Probe will provide new data on solar activity and make critical contributions to our ability to forecast major space-weather events that impact life on Earth.

'This mission will answer questions scientists have sought to uncover for more than six decades'.

The size of a small auto, it can travel from Washington DC to Tokyo in under a minute, NASA said.

This state-of-the-art heat shield will protect instruments created to study magnetic fields, plasma and energetic particles, and capture footage of the solar wind at room temperature.

The mission will alter our comprehension of the Sun, where changing conditions can spread out into the nearby planetary group, influencing Earth and different universes, NASA said. You simply have to give your name.

"The spacecraft will carry my name to the sun, and your name, and the names of everyone who wants to join this voyage of extreme exploration", he continues. Temperatures will reach 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, as the spacecraft zips in and out of this atmospheric hot zone.

"This incredible spacecraft is going to reveal so much about our star and how it works that we've not been able to understand". In the 1950s, Parker proposed various ideas about how stars - including our Sun - radiate vitality. It will also delve into what accelerates the solar wind and solar energetic particles. Parker likewise guessed a clarification for the superheated sun based environment, the crown, which is - as opposed to what was normal by material science laws - more sweltering than the surface of the Sun itself.

Anxious your namesake data will melt within the sun's atmosphere? Many NASA missions have continued to focus on this complex space environment defined by our star.

The flight of the spacecraft Solar Probe Parker on 31 July. APL is designing and building the spacecraft and will also operate it.
