The study of the sun

"These interactions between the Sun's coronal mass ejections and interplanetary dust were theorized twenty years ago, but were not observed until the Parker Solar Probe saw that the coronal ejection acts like a vacuum cleaner, removing the dust from its orbit."
Using the high-altitude research plane WB-57, in one of the projects they will photograph the eclipse from a height of 15 km from the ground. The team hopes that taking the pictures above most of the atmosphere of the country will make it possible to see new details of structures in the middle and lower corona
These dark spots on the Sun, visible in ultraviolet light, are called coronal holes and are areas where fast solar wind bursts out into space. By chance, they managed to take a photo that looked like the sun was smiling.
It is very difficult to squeeze the sun but the reward for the risk is a lot of knowledge about the planet that affects our lives
This is what Dr. Ofer Cohen of the Harvard-Smithsonian Observatory says, during the "Solar Cycle No. 24 and its Impact on Ground and Space Infrastructures" seminar that took place yesterday at the Open University
