NASA launched the spacecraft on Aug. 12th. NASA’s probe will pass by Venus a total of 7 times starting in early October as it uses the planet’s gravity to whip itself ever closer to the star. The spacecraft will make its first close approach in early November. The first science data should return sometime in December.

The video on Parker Solar Probe is as follows.
