Design, fabrication, test, launch, and early operation of the parker solar probe propulsion system
The Parker Solar Probe (PSP) spacecraft, part of NASA’s Living With a Star program, launched on 12 August 2018, atop a Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle with a STAR-48BV upper stage. As NASA’s mission to "touch the Sun," Parker Solar Probe will fly within 3.83 million miles of the Sun and will spend its lifetime studying the gaseous envelope surrounding it: the corona. Over the seven-year mission, PSP will orbit the Sun 24 times and utilize seven Venus fly-bys to gradually shrink its orbit around the Sun. The spacecr ...

Solar Probe Plus: Impact of light scattering by solar system dust on star tracker performance
NASA s upcoming Solar Probe Plus mission will be the first to approach the Sun as close as 8.5 solar radii from the surface and provide in-situ observations of the Sun s corona. In the absence of observational data (e.g., Helios, Pioneer), for distances less than 0.3 AU, the ambient dust distribution close to the Sun remains poorly known and limited to model extrapolation for distances < 1 AU. For the Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission it is critical to characterize the inner solar system dust environment to evaluate potential i ...
