Hawaii: The most detailed and awe-inspiring photo and video of the sun’s surface has been released in human history. The significance of this image is that the New York Times posted it on its front page.
Boiling plasma can also be seen in photos and videos. In bright areas, plasma is seen heating up and flying above the sun. On the other hand, the plasma is slightly cooled down in the darker motifs, the darker parts inside the deep impressions are reflecting the sun’s most powerful magnetic field.
These photos were taken by a telescope mounted on the helicopter hill in the American city of Hawaii. After ten years of hard work and planning, a powerful 4-meter mirror telescope has been installed here. The telescope, made with the support of the National Science Foundation, is named ‘Daniel’s Innovative Telescope’. Its mirror is particularly curved, making it one of the most sophisticated solar telescopes in the world.
Due to its innovation, the telescope can also take a clear picture of a location on the surface of the sun that is only 20 to 30 kilometers wide and is the first image in this regard. Plasma can be seen burning hot in the sun’s surface in the photo and video. The most beautiful part of the photos and videos is that they look very clean.
Now the box in the photo is about 700 miles long, ie Texas, while the ten-minute episode of the sun can be seen in the video below. If you want to understand the scale of the scenes on the video, know that the area shown on it is more than one and a half times the diameter of the ground, ie 12,742.
But the purpose of the telescope is not just to capture detailed images, but to see it, scientists will be able to learn a lot about the sun’s surface and the magnetic field at low altitudes. So far we are less aware of the sun’s magnetic field. It should be noted that the solar magnetic field impacts our Earth by interrupting radial communication, electrical systems and other matters.
Valentine Pellet, a physicist with the National Solar Research Program at the National Science Foundation, says that this telescope allows us to better understand the outer layers of the sun. We will also know how the sun and other stars are structured.
However, this telescope will assist in further observations over the next 6 months and more amazing discoveries are expected.
