NASA, ULA to try again tonight to launch Parker Solar Probe

As the Parker Solar Probe probe orbits the sun, it will experience extreme radiation and temperatures as high as 1,377C (2,510F) - close to the melting point of steel. Nasa hopes the findings will enable scientists to forecast changes in Earth's space environment. The probe is going to fly directly into the sun's atmosphere and trace the movement of energy and heat with the particles that form solar winds.
