Most detailed images of the Sun ever captured show patterns of turbulent ‘boiling’ plasma with ‘cells’ the size of Texas that transport heat from the core to the surface

  • The shots were taken by the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope on Maui, Hawaii
  • Each cell has bright parts where plasma upwells and dark lanes where it sinks
  • Such images will allow experts to study the Sun and the space weather it creates
  • Predicting intense solar activity is important to protect technology here on Earth
