    Scheduled for launch during the summer of 2018 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Parker Solar Probe will head to the Sun – to give humanity the closest-ever observations of a star. Parker Solar Probe will explore and gather data on the Sun’s outer atmosphere - the corona. The data will not only revolutionize our understanding of the corona, but will also improve forecasting of major solar eruptions, and lead to better management of technology on Earth - as well as satellites and astronauts in space. Remind students to watch for updates on the launch over the summer and to read related articles as the mission progresses - to learn more about “the universe and its stars” (NGSS ESS1.A).

    NASA's Universe of Learning is a program which will integrate NASA's Astrophysics Science Mission Directorate programs, and will advance STEM learning and literacy by creating and delivering a unified suite of education products, programs, and professional development that spans the full spectrum of NASA Astrophysics.
    NASA's Universe of Learning is partnering with the NASA Museum Alliance to provide professional development briefings for the informal science education community. These briefings provide current NASA Astrophysics themes, content, and resources to the informal community. These curated lists present the resources described during the briefings. To find the briefings, you can go here:
