Default Re: The Astronomy Thread: FAQs, News & Trivia

Our modern world is built on Newton, and here are scientists now disproving Newton’s theory of gravity based on ground breaking research in black hole, while even Albert Einstein’s theories hang by a thread.Quote “ Einstein's right, at least for now. We can absolutely rule out Newton's law of gravity….Professor Andrea Ghez” (American astronomer and professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UCLA)

The information gathered by NASA's Parker Solar Probe during its first two close passes of the sun is now available (to public as well).

From this website -

The spacecraft primarily gathers data while within about 23 million miles (37 million kilometers) of our star.

Onboard are four science experiments:

1> Fields Experiment, which studies electric and magnetic fields;

2> Integrated Science Investigation of the Sun, which measures high-energy charged particles in the solar wind and corona;

3> Wide-Field Imager for Solar Probe, which images the solar wind and other structures; and

4> Solar Wind Electrons Alphas and Protons Investigation, which measures different types of particles in the solar wind.

The data itself is made publicly available as listed on NASA blog, which further states -

Parker Solar Probe will continue to get closer to the Sun in the coming years, eventually swooping to within 4 million miles of the Sun’s surface, facing heat and radiation like no spacecraft before it.

Initial results and analysis are to be published.
