Photographer's Note

NASA sent up a probe to study the sun a few days ago. It is said that the probe will do 24 flybys in 7 years getting closer each time. it will be dealing with 500 times more solar radiation than we do here. the front side protects the instruments behind by a 4.5 inch shield. the shield will see temps upwards of 2500 degrees. Behind the shield will stay a cool 85 degrees due to the lack of any air to heat things up. This probe cost 1.5 billion.
