NASA is accepting online submissions for the names to be sent on the Parker Solar Probe all the way to the sun. The spacecraft will be launched this summer from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and the space Craft will eventually come within 4 million miles of our star, closer than any other spacecraft.
According to the scientists, the temperature will reach 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, as the spacecraft zips in and out of this atmospheric hot zone. NASA is taking help of famous Actor William Shatner who played the role of Capt. James Kirk in the old "Star Trek" TV series as
NASA's pitchman for the send-your-name-to-the-sun campaign.
