Recently, Bill Coombes registered via his links with NASA, Boscombe & Southbourne Rotary with the Parker Solar Probe that will eventually reach the Sun. At the moment (10-08-2018), it has just orbited Jupiter and is now heading towards the Sun.
NASA’s Parker Solar Probe will be the first-ever mission to "touch" the Sun. The spacecraft, about the size of a small car, will travel directly into the Sun's atmosphere about 4 million miles from the surface.
Below, is the certificate from NASA confirming Boscombe & Southbourne Rotarys name is registered and travelling on the Probe.
If you want more information about this project, please contact Bill Combes at the club
