These incredible images show the Sun in “ultra high resolution” for the first time.
British researchers have collaborated with NASA to unveil the images, the highest-ever resolution.
The images, analysed by researchers at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Centre, provide astronomers with a better understanding of the Sun’s complex atmosphere.
Until now, certain parts of the Sun’s atmosphere had appeared dark or mostly empty.
But the new images have revealed it actually contains strands of hot electrified gases that are around 500km (311 miles) in width.
The ultra-sharp images were taken by NASA’s High-Resolution Coronal Imager (Hi-C) telescope, carried into space on a sub-orbital rocket flight.
The telescope can pick out structures in the Sun’s atmosphere as small as 70km in size, or about 0.01 per cent of its total size.READ FULL ARTICLE
