NASA has said that first time in history the spacecraft has touched the aura (Known as corona) of the Sun. The spacecraft has made the contact with the atmosphere of the Sun having strong magnetism and gravity. Touching the matter that makes up the Sun will help scientists to get information about our star near us and its impact on our solar system. The Parker Solar Probe has gone near the Sun 10 times earlier and for the next 4 years, Parker is going to go still closer to it to collect more information.
