Parker Solar Probe

This was and advanced target done with my RV buddy as a monitor. Thank you Berndt!

The target was the Parker Solar Probe and its mission. “NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission is revolutionizing our understanding of the Sun, where changing conditions can propagate out into the solar system, affecting Earth and other worlds. Parker Solar Probe travels through the Sun’s atmosphere, closer to the surface than any spacecraft before it, facing brutal heat and radiation conditions to provide humanity with the closest-ever observations of a star. In order to unlock the mysteries of the Sun’s atmosphere, Parker Solar Probe uses Venus’ gravity during seven flybys over nearly seven years to gradually bring its orbit closer to the Sun. The spacecraft will fly through the Sun’s atmosphere as close as 3.8 million miles to our star’s surface, well within the orbit of Mercury and more than seven times closer than any spacecraft has come before. ” (More info on the probe and mission can be found here)

The initial gestalts were space-air, biological, manmade and motion energy. The main manmade element was described as round, ringy, hollow, long, spiraling, spoked, black, metallic, tarp-like in parts, inflateable in parts, smooth, glossy, reflective in other parts, tubular, bullet-like, cylindrical, grey and black, and complex-shaped with a main purpose of flying.

The most important part of the event was the manmade accelerating upward, being shot up on an orbital trajectory.

The objective of the manmade was described as sparkly, light, starry, spectacular, a light show. Will it eventually get so close to the sun as to disintegrate, I wonder?

I managed to pick up correct data on the ULA Systems Engineer Patrick Moore, the chief engineer of the probe. 😀
