"The solar probe is going to a region of space that has never been explored before", Parker said in a past news release from the space agency.
The spacecraft speed is so fast, at its closest approach it will be going at approximately 430,000 miles (692,000 km) per hour.
NASA missions are regularly renamed after dispatch and confirmation.
