美国宇航局首次进入太阳大气层,并带来了新的发现

NASA Enters the Solar Atmosphere for the First Time, Bringing New Discoveries

For the first time in history, a spacecraft has touched the Sun. NASA’s Parker Solar Probe has now flown through the Sun’s upper atmosphere – the corona – and sampled particles and magnetic fields there.

宇宙飞船在历史上第一次接触了太阳。美国宇航局的帕克太阳探测器现在已经飞过了太阳的上层大气——日冕,并在那里采样了粒子和磁场。

The new milestone marks one major step for Parker Solar Probe and one giant leap for solar science. Just as landing on the Moon allowed scientists to understand how it was formed, touching the very stuff the Sun is made of will help scientists uncover critical information about our closest star and its influence on the solar system.

这一新的里程碑标志着帕克太阳探测器迈出了一大步,也是太阳科学的一大步。就像登上月球让科学家们了解它是如何形成的一样,接触太阳的组成物质将帮助科学家们发现关于我们最近的恒星及其对太阳系影响的关键信息。

“Parker Solar Probe “touching the Sun” is a monumental moment for solar science and a truly remarkable feat,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Not only does this milestone provide us with deeper insights into our Sun’s evolution and its impacts on our solar system, but everything we learn about our own star also teaches us more about stars in the rest of the universe.”

位于华盛顿的NASA总部科学任务理事会副主任Thomas Zurbuchen说:“帕克太阳探测器‘触碰到太阳’是太阳科学的一个里程碑,是一个真正了不起的壮举。”“这一里程碑不仅让我们对太阳的进化及其对太阳系的影响有了更深入的了解,而且我们对自己恒星的了解也让我们更多地了解宇宙中其他恒星。”
