The temperature around the sun is millions of times hotter than the sun’s surface itself.
It was tens of thousands of times more massive than the ones our Sun puts out.
We’re basically copying off of Nature.
It also met a lot of asteroids it still hangs around with.
Sunny days ahead!
We have a spacecraft inside the sun’s atmosphere — take that in for a moment.
The ‘twin’ was forged in the same stellar nursery as the Sun. It also has the same age, metallicity, chemical abundances, and even carbon-isotope ratios as the Sun.
And it’s only getting warmed up.
With a bit of help from NASA, you can now hear the sun’s roar — and it’s glorious.
A modern-day Icarus — but this one won’t get burned.
Don’t judge. Forgetting about babies in the car could happen to anyone.
Are you breaking up with us, Sun?!
He was one of the pioneers of studying solar activity.
Scientists think this is a left over effect since the sun formed billions of years ago. In time, solar wind likely slowed the rotation of the outer sun.
It could make a huge difference.
It’s eclipse season for the Solar Observatory
It just needed some space…
The swirling gases could shed light on the atmosphere of other planets within and outside of our solar system.
A spectacular image captured by the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) gives us a glimpse into how the Sun will look at its death.
