The Parker Solar Probe will make its first flyby of Venus

August 12, 2018

Launched in August on a mission to “touch the sun,” the Parker Solar Probe will complete seven flybys of Venus to help it reduce its orbit. These orbital maneuvers will help the probe eventually get closer to the sun than any spacecraft ever sent into space.
