NASA shared on their blog that it "was scrubbed today due to a violation of a launch limit, resulting in a hold." It added that a second attempt is now planned for Sunday from Space Launch Complex-37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

According to NASA, its Parker Solar Probe will revolutionise the understanding of the Sun, our closest star.

"Parker Solar Probe is part of NASA's Living With a Star program to explore aspects of the Sun-Earth system that directly affect life and society. The spacecraft will fly into part of the Sun's atmosphere, known as the corona, for the first time." (ANI)
