NASA's Parker Solar Probe is humanity's first-ever mission to a star, where it is directly exploring the Sun's large atmosphere. It will eventually zoom to within just 3.9 million miles of the Sun's surface, facing heat and radiation like no spacecraft ever has! Follow the instructions in this activity guide to build your own paper model of the Parker Solar Probe.
