The mission is expected to launch in summer 2018, so you only have between now and 27 April to enter if you want your name to be blasting off to the skies.

Scientists are hopeful that the maiden mission to Sun can reveal how heat and energy move through Sun's and how the solar winds come out of Sun.

By using Venus' gravity to steer its trajectory closer to the Sun with each pass, the probe saves vital fuel and battery power while bringing itself as close as 3.83 million miles from the surface of the Sun-a distance far closer than the planet Mercury and seven times closer than any other spacecraft has ever ventured.

In the event that you need your name to movement through the Sun's environment, overcoming fierce warmth and radiation conditions, here comes your possibility.

Fans also learned Kardashian has been ordered to take special vitamins to maintain the level of progesterone that she needs. Considering that she can't have a glass of wine to cope, Kardashian confessed she "misses drinking".

The Parker solar probe mission is scheduled to launch from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on July 31. NASA is welcoming individuals around the globe to present their names online to be put on a microchip on board its noteworthy sun oriented test propelling this midyear. NASA explains that people who sign up will have their name included in a memory card that the Parker Solar Probe will carry on its mission to the sun.

Studying the effects of the Sun on Space and the planetary system is known as heliophysics. NASA points out that, that's fast enough to travel between Washington D.C. and Tokyo in less than a minute.

And, the Parker Solar Probe could help researchers crack some of the biggest mysteries of our universe.

NASA named the spacecraft the Parker Solar Probe in honor of astrophysicist Eugene Parker.

Bezos (Amazon) le plus riche du monde, Arnault (LVMH) 4e
Les patrons de l'univers high-tech sont comme toujours très présents dans le classement des personnes les plus riches du monde. Sacré homme le plus riche du monde en 2008, il est aujourd'hui à la tête d'une fortune estimée à 88 milliards de dollars.

This probe will journey to a region humanity has never explored before.

The announcement was made at a ceremony at the University of Chicago, where Parker serves as the S Chandrasekhar Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics.

The microchip will accompany the Parker Solar Probe on millions of miles of space travel and 24 high-speed orbits around the Sun.

Back in the '50s, Parker proposed a number of groundbreaking theories about how stars - including our sun - give off energy. This is the first ever solar mission travelling to an atmosphere with temperatures more than 1 million degrees!

Mercedes convinced Red Bull is now serious threat
Neither Mercedes driver attempted anything resembling a performance run but combined the two drivers completed 181 laps. Daniel Ricciardo is optimistic Red Bull can challenge Mercedes this season after impressing in testing.

Those instruments will make a variety of measurements, helping to characterize the sun's structure, magnetic and electric fields and the solar wind, the stream of charged particles flowing from our star. 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.
