Approaching the Sun

Credit: Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Artist’s concept of the Parker Solar Probe spacecraft approaching the sun. At closest approach, Parker Solar Probe will be hurtling around the sun at approximately 450,000 miles per hour! That's fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in one second. Closest approach will be 3.83 million miles.
