US space agency NASA has launched its mission to send a satellite closer to the Sun than any before.
 
The rocket carrying the Parker Solar Probe shot up into the sky from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
 
It came after a failed attempt the previous day when a last-minute alarm caused the agency to miss its 65-minute weather window.
 
The probe is set to become the fastest-moving manmade object in history.
 
Its data promises to crack longstanding mysteries about the Sun's behaviour.
