National Aeronautics and Space Administration jets for first time will chase solar Eclipse
27 July 2017 Current Affairs: Scientists from National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for the first time are planning to chase the shadow of the moon using two of NASA’s WB-57F research jets during the upcoming total solar eclipse in the United States.

The research jets (planes) will have twin telescopes mounted on the noses of the planes to capture clearest images of Sun’s corona to date.

The corona of the sun is heated to millions of degrees, but the lower atmospheric layers like the photosphere are only heated to a few thousand degrees.
