Talk Summary

The Parker Solar Probe was launched in August this year on a mission to 'touch the Sun'... or at least get closer to the Sun than any spacecraft has done before. Carolin will discuss the science behind the mission, and the kind of challenges required to enable a spacecraft to withstand temperatures as high as 1,400 degrees C.
