NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Captures Boiling Hot Surface Of Venus

The NASA-sponsored Parker Solar Probe is doing wonders, and now it has just provided immaculate data on Venus. NASA claims that the Parker Solar Probe captured Venus like ‘never before’ while passing by Venus. In conclusion, the Solar Probe ascertained that Venus possessed immense heliospheric power. Read on to find out what exactly the probe’s findings were and what data it revealed about the planet.

The Parker Solar Probe has captured amazing pictures while gliding by Venus as it approaches the Sun’s mass. The images will deepen researchers’ understanding of the surface of Venus. As the Parker spacecraft passed Venus, it pointed its cameras at the nightside of the planet. When exploring the planet, it saw the visible wavelengths of light, including the reddish colors that verge on infrared light that can pass through the clouds.

Venus’s hotter areas, such as low-lying volcanic plains, appeared brighter than the shadier regions at higher altitudes, like Aphrodite Terra, one of Venus’s three continent-sized regions. Venus will be visited again by the Parker Solar Probe in November 2024. Here is the official release by NASA.

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe

On August 12, 2018 NASA launched the probe to the sun with a mission of having a better understanding of the sun and its atmosphere which we call “the corona”, specifically gathering data on the processes that heat the corona and accelerate the solar wind – which will solve two fundamental mysteries that have been top-priority science goals for many decades and let us know the true nature of the single most biggest source of energy of our solar system. The Parker Solar Probe is probably NASA’s finest or to be precise most efficient and the fastest probe (190 km/s) to exist to date.
