NASA Parker Solar Probe mission, which launched on August 12, 2018, has successfully completed five solar orbits (perihelia on Nov. 5, 2018, Apr. 4, 2019,  Sep. 1, 2019,  Jan. 29, 2020 and Jun. 7, 2020) and started the sixth  (perihelion on Sep. 27,2020). All systems are nominal. 

The data from the first two orbits were fully downlinked as of May 2019 and the data was released to the scientific community and the public on Nov. 12, 2019. The data from the third encounter was released on February 10, 2020 and the rest of the data from orbit 3 was released on August 4, 2020.

Calibration and preliminary analyses of the data from the fourth orbit are ongoing in preparation for release to the scientific community and the public on noon EST September 15, 2020.

The data will be accessible through NASA SPDF (spdf.gsfc.nasa.gov), SDAC (umbra.nascom.nasa.gov), the Science Operation Centers (SOCs) of the four science investigation teams, and the APL Parker Solar Probe Gateway.
