Why is it So Difficult to Fall Into the Sun?

9th August 2018

More space news and info at: http://www.coconutsciencelab.com – the Parker Solar Probe will perform seven Venus gravity assists over its seven-year mission to shed sideways speed into Venus’ well of orbital energy.

These gravity assists will draw the Parker Solar Probe’s orbit closer to the Sun for a record approach of just 3.83 million miles from the Sun’s visible surface on the final orbits.
