National Science Foundation’s Inouye Solar Telescope has uncovered an incredibly high-resolution image of the Sun’s surface. You can see what is by all accounts like a muddled yellow jigsaw puzzle. Rather, it’s the high-resolution picture of the Sun’s surface people have ever caught. The picture shows the activity that is right now happening on the Sun’s surface, and it seems, by all accounts, to be designed like, however, it’s really “boiling” plasma in motion.
Inouye Solar Telescope Captured HD Images of Sun
Every one of the cells you can see in the image is about the size of Texas and move very violently, much like a pot of water that has been brought the boiling point. Each of these cells rises and falls as the warmth from the inner core of the Sun extends outwards, eventuating into the sunlight based climate that we experience here on Earth. The new Inouye Solar Telescope will have the option to give researchers another comprehension of the Sun, as the telescope will have the option to delineate magnetics and at last permit us to anticipate sun based storms better.
Matt Mountain, president of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, said, “On Earth, we can predict if it is going to rain pretty much anywhere in the world very accurately, and space weather just isn’t there yet. Our predictions lag behind terrestrial weather by 50 years, if not more. What we need is to grasp the underlying physics behind space weather, and this starts at the Sun, which is what the Inouye Solar Telescope will study over the next decades.”
Thomas Rimmele, director of the Inouye Solar Telescope, said, “It’s all about the magnetic field. To unravel the Sun’s biggest mysteries, we have to not only be able to clearly see these tiny structures from 93 million miles away but very precisely measure their magnetic field strength and direction near the surface and trace the field as it extends out into the million-degree corona, the outer atmosphere of the Sun.”
