    NASA probe on closest-ever journey to the Sun

    NASA successfully launched a spacecraft toward the sun on Sunday, hoping to increase scientific understanding of how our star works.

    The Parker Solar Probe’s departure promises to set a plethora of records, including speediest spacecraft, highest velocity while leaving Earth and closest solar approach.
