NASA's Parker Solar Probe launches in about an hour.

Quite an exciting mission to put a probe into the sun's corona. Of course, with a trip of around 5,000 miles it should be there in no time...

It's a figure I've seen bandied about for the distance to the sun in flat earth models. I'll admit my research wasn't thorough.
