The Parker Solar Probe will launch between 31 July and 19 August from Kennedy Space Center on board a Delta IV-Heavy. It will investigate how the corona is heated and how the solar wind is accelerated. The Probe was named for Eugene Parker, who developed a number of ideas the Probe was actually constructed to test.

One can acquire a "Hot Ticket" to place his or her name on board a microchip which will travel with the craft.
