NASA's Parker Solar Probe is scheduled for launch in 2018 to explore the Sun's outer atmosphere.
Near-Earth asteroid 3200 Phaethon has a diameter of about six km which is one km more than previous estimates
The radar images obtained during the asteroid's close approach to Earth in December are the highest-resolution images of the object to date.
Which of these two NASA missions will finally make it will be known only in 2019.
OSIRIS-REx, NASA's asteroid hunting spacecraft flew past the Earth, coming within 17,237 km of Antarctica
The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is currently on a seven-year journey to rendezvous with, study, and return a sample of Bennu to Earth. This sample of a primitive asteroid will help scientists understand the formation of our solar system more than 4.5 billion years ago.
The Earth's gravity will fling the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, travelling at a staggering speed of 19,000 miles (30,758 km) per hour.
A NASA spacecraft has started searching for an enigmatic class of near-Earth objects known as Earth-Trojan asteroids.
