MK Uis : reminds me of the movie Sunshine (2007)...

1k Flash : Watch the probe change direction by itself somewhere in deep space😂

Subbura 1988 : Wow & we cannot solve world hunger

Dieng Khadim Mbacke : Mission impossible

OFFICIALBOOKERFORTE : in just taking a wild guess but I think Sun wins...

Shane Euston : NASA please teach Apple how to keep their new laptops cool as well. Thank you.

Ramzki : *Who would win:* A giant space ball boi *Or* A painted foam boi

Sir Spike : The Sun goes away at night , just go then

cellphone bwahahaha : The sun is white tho not yellow

Farshad Bashir : Launch time was for today 03.48 AM. That is a launch in the night!

TANGLDWEB : This just brings to mind. All those videos of why A Rocket "CAN'T" be sent to the Sun. Funny how Math and Man work ☺ ...stupid dude with the wax wings lol... GO NASA

Nick Danaluk : They could save a lot of effort shielding the spacecraft by simply going at night.

naxel37 : I'm pretty sure it's not gonna last long. Maybe enough to get some good shots and data. Definitely worth a shot. Id think they would use some kind of Titanium Magnesium Tungsten alloy. But I guess carbon styrofoam works better.
