In this long-exposure NASA handout photo, a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket is seen launching NASA's Parker Solar Probe toward the sun on Sunday at Launch Complex 37, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. NASA postponed the launch until Sunday of the first-ever spacecraft to fly directly at the sun on a mission to plunge into our star's sizzling atmosphere. The reason for the delay was not immediately clear, but was called after a gaseous helium alarm sounded in the last moments before liftoff, officials said (see story on page 9). Photo: AFP
