Parker Solar Probe preparation. Parker Solar Probe being prepared for space environment testing in the thermal vacuum chamber at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Maryland, USA. The Parker Solar Probe is a NASA robotic spacecraft designed to probe the outer corona of the Sun. The mission was launched in August 2018. The thermal vacuum chamber (officially the Space Environment Simulator) replicates the airless environment of space and simulates the cold and hot temperature cycles the spacecraft will endure during its seven-year exploration of the Sun, in order to test that its systems and components can endure these conditions and operate as designed.
