A United Launch Alliance Delta 4-Heavy rocket launches NASA's Parker Solar Probe to study the sun closer than ever
before. The launch [may have] set a new record (surpassing
New Horizons) for fastest spacecraft ever to depart Earth,
and it will set another record for fastest manmade object in history when it reaches a whopping 430,000 mph in its
orbit of just over three million miles above the surface of the sun! Photos this page: United Launch Alliance
