Meanwhile back in March, NASA invited people around the world to submit their names online to be placed on a microchip aboard its historic Parker Solar Probe. Submissions were accepted till April 27.



Moreover NASA this week revealed that a total of 1,137,202 names were submitted and confirmed over the seven and a half week period.

Moreover throughout its seven-year mission, the spacecraft will swoop through the Sun's atmosphere 24 times, getting closer to our star than any spacecraft has gone before.
