What does it mean to be the "fastest" object when something is in space?
Speed is measured relative to the inertial frame of reference of the moving object. For earth bound objects (including those in orbit around the Earth) that is the Earth itself. So you time the object between two points relative to the Earth. We tend to use the surface of the earth for convenience, but for accuracy and for use in space, the center of gravity of the Earth is the actual reference.
For a spacecraft, like Solar Probe, in the solar system, the inertial frame of reference is the Sun. So you use the time between two points relative to the center of the Sun. For Solar Probe, this is especially appropriate, since it will be "skimming" the surface of the Sun, so to speak. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alan.A.Mick (talk • contribs) 02:03, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Various different materials. I don't have to whole list. But that, as well as a description of the spacecraft and the instruments, should really be added to this page. Fcrary (talk) 18:03, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
