There was applause in the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) control room minutes after the launch, as the rocket took off towards the outer atmosphere.
These fuels create smoke and air pollution by emitting carbon in the outer atmosphere. In the process of saving time by using fast modes of transportation, we have caused irreparable damage to the ozone layer as well, which protects human life from the hazardous rays that hit our planet.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- It's one of the greatest and longest-running mysteries surrounding, quite literally, our sun: Why is its outer atmosphere hotter than its fiery surface?
"The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory was designed to study the internal structure of the sun, its extensive outer atmosphere and the origin of the solar wind," (https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/soho/index.html) NASA wrote in an official post.
Aluminium bags and pouches are also used for protecting sensitive items that require optimum protection from the outer atmosphere to avoid spoilage
The corona, the outer atmosphere of the Sun, is a dynamic plasma permeated by a magnetic field.
The probe will keep getting closer to the Sun until it flies through the corona, or outer atmosphere, next week, passing within 15 million miles of the solar surface.
The probe will study the sun's outer atmosphere, as well as the stream of particles it blasts constantly out into space - known as solar wind.
If all goes well, the Parker Solar Probe will fly straight through the wispy edges of the sun's corona, or outer atmosphere, in November.
The craft will endure extreme heat while zooming through the solar corona to study the Sun's outer atmosphere that gives rise to the solar winds.
Using its satellite broadband network coupled with its airborne satcom terminals mounted onto two of NASA's WB-57 high altitude research aircraft, ViaSat enabled a successful HD video live stream of high-resolution images of the Sun's corona, its outer atmosphere, during totality of Monday's total solar eclipse, and provided two-way communication between the planes and controllers on the ground.
They have been implicated in providing hot plasma to the corona, potentially resolving the long-standing puzzle of why the Sun's outer atmosphere reaches temperatures of millions of degrees.
