These programmes encourage students and scientists to ideate innovative solutions for problems that the US space agency is trying to overcome.
On November 5, the spacecraft made the closest approach, called perihelion. Parker Solar Probe reached a top speed of 213,200 miles per hour, setting a new record for spacecraft speed.
The manoeuvre exposed the spacecraft to intense heat and solar radiation in a complex solar wind environment, NASA said in a statement.
Ralph was first launched aboard the New Horizons spacecraft in 2006m and obtained stunning flyby images of Jupiter and its moons.
The Hubble Space telescope has spotted a formation of galaxies that resembles a smiling face in the sky.
According to NASA, the annual ozone hole reached an average area coverage of 22.9 square km in 2018.
Dawn, which studied two of the largest objects in the asteroid belt, missed scheduled communications sessions with NASA's Deep Space Network on October 31 and November 1, NASA said in a statement.
Working in deep space for nine years, Kepler discovered planets from outside the solar system, many of which could be promising places for life.
According to NASA, it was the fastest inflation in history of a parachute this size and created a peak load of almost 70,000 pounds of force.
Parker Solar Probe is also expected to break the record for fastest spacecraft travelling relative to the Sun.
One of Hubble’s gyros failed on October 5, and the spacecraft's operations team activated a backup gyro the next day.
The stripes are parallel, appear to overlie other features and are unaffected by topography, suggesting they are among the youngest surfaces on Dione.
Fermi has mapped about 3,000 gamma-ray sources -- 10 times the number known before its launch and comparable to the number of bright stars in the traditional constellations.
The initial proposal deadline is November 19, 2018, the US space agency said.
