NASA's Parker Solar Probe became the first spacecraft to visit the upper atmosphere of the Sun. This was reported on the website of the US space agency.
“The probe flew through the upper atmosphere of the Sun, its corona, collected data on solar energy particles and magnetic fields. Touching the very substance of which the Sun is made will help scientists gain important information about the star and its impact on the solar system, '' NASA said in a statement.
It is also reported that the device will continue to fly to collect more more data. NASA claims that the data obtained by Parker Solar Probe will help meteorologists predict changes in space weather.
