Altogether, the Parker probe will make 24 close approaches to our star during the seven-year, $1.5 billion journey.
"We're going to get into this district, from which captures the spirit, where the solar wind is, we believe, will accelerate", - said the Director of the Department for the study of the planets NASA Jim green. While granting us life, the sun also has the power to disrupt spacecraft in orbit, and communications and electronics on Earth.
But these solar outbursts are poorly understood.
It's a historic mission and NASA said it will try again Sunday morning. In the years ahead, it will gradually get within 3.8 million miles (6 million kilometers) of the surface, its instruments protected from the extreme heat and radiation by a revolutionary new carbon heat shield and other high-tech wizardry. The shield is also built to sustain solar radiation levels 500 times greater than those that reach Earth.

It's created to take solar punishment like never before, thanks to its revolutionary heat shield that's capable of withstanding 1,370 degrees Celsius (2,500 degrees Fahrenheit). And so, these are sort of the three fundamental questions we want to address: "the speed of the solar wind, this eruptive phenomena, solar storms, and how is the corona heated?"
Scorching, yes? But if all works as planned, the inside of the spacecraft should stay at just 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
The tools on board will measure the expanding corona and continually flowing atmosphere known as the solar wind, which solar physicist Eugene Parker first described in 1958. It later updated that the launch was "scrubbed" and a second attempt will be made on Sunday morning.
Parker said he was "impressed" by the Parker Solar Probe, calling it "a very complex machine".
"I'm flattered naturally. That's about all I can say", said Parker.
Along with being the first spacecraft to fly that close to a star, Parker also will be the fastest, streaking through the outer corona at some 430,000 miles per hour - fast enough to fly from Washington, D.C., to Tokyo in less than one minute.
We know about our expectations and we know there is a really positive atmosphere around us in the pre-season. The result continued West Ham's awful record at Anfield, which now extends to one win in 46 league games.
