Scientists have discovered lava bulbs similar to 500 times more than Earth's sunshine , in data from spacecraft launched in the 1970's.
There is a thin, which we do not know about the matter that exploded the Sun into space, so scientists sent a new Parker Solar Probe for observation. the star is close. This new study offers a preview of the things Parker can see, providing "a more comprehensive study of the formation of the solar wind," according to an article published in the Journal of Geophysical Research.
Today, scientists share a sunny wind. which affects the Earth by two components, a "fast" and "slow" flow, although they are more distinguished by the kinds of matter they contain. The fast solar wind consists of elements similar to the outer layers of the Sun, and it seems to come from coronal holes, cooler areas in the plasma surrounding the Sun. But slower solar winds may differ in their density and varieties of elements that they contain.
Scientists have tried to slow down the flow of various sources around the Sun. However, it was difficult. Scientists have measured areas of plasma density higher on Earth, coming from the Sun. Blobs if you like. But they did not have much chance to take data in the region of space closer to the Sun.
A team of researchers behind the new book was able to add evidence to the region thanks to steam spacecraft that have not sent data back to Earth since the 1980s: Helios 1 and 2. They discovered similar drops of higher density in the intermediate space , which seem to correspond to those that afflict the Earth's magnetosphere and which seemed to originate from the Sun about every half hour
NASA and the German Institute for Testing and Research on Aviation and Space Flight (now called the German Aerospace Center or DLR) launched Helios probes in 1974 and 1976 to understand the particles released by the Sun. Much of the work on the latest documentation involved the development and clearing of data over the decades that goes into reading the German operating manual to understand the tools, according to NASA's press release. Heavy work was calculated by revealing the chains of these droplets and potentially exposing the places on the Sun where they could come out.
This is an exciting find, but it raises many questions about the nature of droplets. Fortunately, last year, NASA launched a record-breaking Parker Solar Probe recorder hoping to "touch" the crown and solve some of the mysteries of how the sunshine works.
