The Fastest Ever Man-made Machine.

1. First spacecraft to study a star - Our Sun. 

The Parker solar probe, launched on August 11, 2018 is a part of NASA’s ‘Living With a Star’ program. 

This probe will attempt to study two sections of the Sun: the corona and its atmosphere.

2. First mission to be named after living person. 

The Parker solar probe gets its name from physicist Eugene Parker, who provided concepts to the energy generating capabilities of stars.

3.Closest distance of any spacecraft from Sun.

This distance will reduce to 3.8 million miles (6.12 million km) by the final orbits of the Parker spacecraft around the sun.

Now Solar Tech Can Power Smart Devices Indoors.

We usually think of solar, or photovoltaic (PV), cells fixed to roofs, converting sunlight into electricity, but bringing that technology indoors could further boost the energy efficiency of buildings and energize swaths of wireless smart technologies such as smoke alarms, cameras and temperature sensors , also called Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Now, a study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) suggests that a straightforward approach for capturing light indoors may be within reach.
