The Parker solar probe launched early this morning.  It will take about seven years to reach a close orbit of about 4 million miles from the sun toward the latter part of 2024.  Hopefully it has enough shielding:  https://www.space.com/41454-nasa-parker-solar-probe-launches-to-sun.html

That's really neat news!  Keep us posted.   :)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.
