What is the closest we have ever flown a spacecraft to the sun?

    We sent the Helios I and II Probes, which the second of the pair has gotten 43.432 million kilometers from the sun, the closest flight so far (first citation).

    There is a new mission that NASA is partaking upon to get a probe closer to the sun than ever before, and it’ll be equipped with 3D mapping and photographic technologies; that’ll give a more accurate depiction of the sun than has ever been done (second citation).
