The Sun has always been a mystery for humankind as it was difficult to approach our star. In 1859, the first solar flares were observed by Richard Carrington and Richard Hodgson and since then, we have been trying to discover more about the Sun and answer the questions on scientists’ minds. The Park Solar Probe was launched in 2018 in search of these answers, and as of November 2021, it has reached its closest approach to the Sun so far, into the corona and will reach its closest approach by 2025. So what do we know about the Sun so far?
