The Parker Solar Probe, named after American solar astrophysicist Eugene Parker, will, as the United States space agency describes it, "touch the sun" as it flies within 3.9 million miles of the star's surface.
The probe is protected by a 4in-thick shield that constantly repositions itself between the sun's power and the scientific instruments on board. It's the first time NASA has named a spacecraft after someone who's still alive.
It is created to withstand heat of up to 1,000 degrees Celsius, speeds of 700,000 kilometres per hour and a journey that will last seven years.
