Solar probe. Computer artwork of a probe (unmanned spacecraft) being used to investigate the Sun (not seen). The red swirls may represent the solar wind, a stream of charged particles continuously emitted by the Sun. The probe has a radio antenna (dish-shaped, green) to transmit data from its sensors back to Earth. Several solar probes have been launched from Earth and placed in orbit about the Sun.
