CAPE CANAVERAL –  NASA’s Parker Solar Probe has blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force station on its historic mission to the Sun.

The probe lit up the night sky as it blasted off at 3:31 a.m. EDT.

The article goes on to state the following:

Carried by a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket, Parker lifted off from Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex 37. The launch had intially been scheduled for early Saturday, but last-minute technical glitches ate away at the launch window, prompting a 24-hour delay.

The $1.5 billion mission will take humanity closer to the Sun than ever before. Parker will be the first spacecraft to fly through the Sun’s corona, the outermost part of the star’s atmosphere. It is expected to reach the Sun in November.

The article continues:

“It was a really clean launch,” Dr. Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, told reporters. “It took off like it should.”

“Everything was exactly like we thought it would be – it really was textbook,” he added.

  1. My question is WHY ? Why can’t we use that 1.5 billion dollars to reach the poor American’s ? We could build homes for those who have to rely on government housing, to those who are homeless, etc. Plant real food with no chemicals. I just feel it is a waste of money at this time. The booming economy hasn’t reached all 52 States yet !
