WASHINGTON, August 11. /TASS/. The launch of the Parker Solar Probe intended to study the mysteries of the Sun’s atmosphere has been delayed, NASA said on its Twitter on Saturday.

"This morning's launch of the DeltaIV heavy rocket carrying the Parker Solar Probe spacecraft was scrubbed. The launch is planned for Sunday, Aug. 12," NASA said.

According to data posted on NASA’s website, the Parker Solar Probe mission "will perform the closest-ever observations of a star when it travels through the Sun's atmosphere, called the corona. The probe will rely on measurements and imaging to revolutionize our understanding of the corona and the Sun-Earth connection.".
