NASA postpones Parker Solar Probe mission to Sunday morning after 'a condition' 11.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
NASA on Saturday scrubbed the Parker Solar Probe, announcing that the launch team will attempt the mission on Sunday morning. The first ever spacecraft to fly directly toward the Sun was poised to blast off today, on a mission to plunge into our star's sizzling atmosphere and unlock the mysteries of the centre of the solar system. NASA's car-sized, USD 1.5 billion Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to launch on a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida now on Sunday morning. The time has not been specified as yet. By coming closer to the Sun than any spacecraft in history, the unmanned probe's main goal is to unveil the secrets of the corona, the unusual atmosphere around the Sun. "We are going to be in an area that is so exciting, where solar wind -- we believe -- will be accelerating," said NASA planetary science division director Jim Green. "Where we see huge magnetic fields that are passing by us, as coronal mass ejections make their way out into the solar system." Not only is the corona ...

NASA counts down to the launch of first spacecraft which will touch the 'Sun' 10.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
NASA counted down today to the launch of a USD 1.5 billion spacecraft that aims to plunge into the Sun's sizzling atmosphere and become humanity's first mission to explore a star. The car-sized Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to blast off on a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida early tomorrow. The 65-minute launch window opens at 3:33 am (local time), and the weather forecast is 70 percent favorable for takeoff, NASA said. The probe's main goal is to unveil the secrets of the corona, the unusual atmosphere around Sun. Not only is the corona about 300 times hotter than the Sun's surface, it also hurls powerful plasma and energetic particles that can unleash geomagnetic space storms and disrupt Earth's power grid. "The Parker Solar Probe will help us do a much better job of predicting when a disturbance in the solar wind could hit Earth," said Justin Kasper, one of the project scientists and a professor at the University of Michigan. The probe is protected by an ultra-powerful heat shield ...

Tokyo unscathed as weakening typhoon brushes by, heads north 9.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Japan's capital of Tokyo was unscathed on Thursday after a weakening typhoon brushed by it and headed north, pounding the coastline with rain and high winds, with scores of cancelled flights, and some power outages, in its wake. Though typhoon "Shanshan," a Chinese girl's name, had been predicted to possibly make landfall near Tokyo, a northeasterly twist to its course kept it out at sea and spared the capital more than high winds and heavy rains, which had mostly dissipated by morning. By late morning the centre of the storm was in the Pacific just off the city of Mito, about 100 km (62 miles) northeast of Tokyo, and set to weaken to tropical storm strength within hours as it moves further east into the Pacific. Around 100 domestic flights were cancelled and some trains, and there were about 2,000 households without power, but Tokyo's vast transportation system was operating mostly as usual. Japan has suffered from one weather disaster after another in the last six weeks, including a deadly heatwave ...
