Business Insider reports that NASA is about to launch a $1.5 billion space mission to "touch" the sun. The mission is to study its atmosphere, solar wind, and other mysteries.
The Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to rocket toward space on Sunday, August 12. The launch was originally planned for Saturday. An unspecified technical issue , though, halted that attempt. Meteorologists say there's about a 60% chance the weather will cooperate for Sunday's launch.
