In a couple of days NASA will be sending a new probe into space to study the sun. It’s called the Parker Solar Probe. What’s so amazing? It will be the fastest object ever created by humans…reaching speeds up to 430,000 MPH! Now that’s pretty fast. But one figure really gives you an idea about how big the universe is. Even at that speed it would still take 7,000 years to reach the star that is closest to us, Alpha Centauri. That’s pretty incredible.
