The national science Foundation of the USA published the most detailed picture of the surface of the Sun in the entire history of observations. Photo of star available on the website of the Fund.
The most detailed images in history were made by ground-based telescope Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), established in Hawaii. According to the report of the Fund, with the new photos, scientists will be able to study in detail the structure of stars. Clarifies that solar activity can affect satellite communications, GPS and cause power outages on Earth.
With the telescope scientists plan to create a detailed picture of the corona of the Sun. The mirror device has a four-meter diameter that will allow you to accurately build a map of the surface of the space object. Previously for the study researchers had to wait for a total solar Eclipse.
In December 2019, NASA scientists have discovered a previously unknown type of magnetic radiation in the Sun. The researchers found that using magnetic Pertamina of stars displayed excess heat.
In early January, the Moscow planetarium has recorded the closest approach of the Sun to the Earth. Such as when the celestial body appears in the telescope, three percent more than usual, there is once a year. The most distant point from the Sun, our planet is held in early July, when the distance between them is 152 million kilometers.
