NASA scientists plan to send Solar Probe + (Plus) to the Sun in 2015 to address two questions!
“We are going to visit a living, breathing star for the first time,” says program scientist Lika Guhathakurta of NASA Headquarters. “This is an unexplored region of the solar system and the possibilities for discovery are off the charts.”
Q 1: Why is the corona of the sun hotter than the surface?
Q2: Why does the sun have winds among planets and not on the surface of the sun?
The probe will use solar power.
I wonder which students now in K20 school will help to plan, build the craft, and conduct this exciting probe? Will Tablet and mobile PC students have an advantage qualifying for one of these positions?
