Question about English (US)

What does "as close to the sun as the Earth." mean?


It was a demo mission, so the goal was just to show that the rocket could fire up its engines and fly into space.

Test flights typically have a dummy payload, such as a big hunk of metal, so that nothing important or expensive is damaged if the rocket blows up.

But Musk decided to offer up his personal Tesla roadster. The Falcon Heavy launch was nearly perfect, and the roadster is headed for orbit around the sun. Its path will take it as far away as Mars, and, later, as close to the sun as the Earth.
