And we thought Usain Bolt was fast

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe smashed two space records, and its journey is just beginning, reports CNET. Using Venus as a slingshot, the spacecraft on April 29 travelled at a speed at which one could circle the Earth 13 times in one hour. Parker established two records: fastest human-made object: 532,000 km/h; and closest spacecraft to the sun – 10.4 million km. The spacecraft is revealing some of the sun’s great mysteries. In December 2019, Parker’s first batch of data was released in the journal Nature.
