Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – The sun’s surface represents a violent spot that is impossible to approach, and now we can see it in amazing detail thanks to the first pictures that Daniel K. Observatory returned. Inoue Al Shamsi of the National Science Foundation of Hawaii.
The Earth telescope will work in conjunction with NASA’s Parker solar probe, which orbits the sun, and the upcoming European Space Agency / NASA orbital to find out more about the sun, and how the space weather that the sun creates can affect Earth.
Details are shown in the recently released photos of the plasma covering the sun, which appears to be boiling. Giant cells help generate convection, as heat is heated from inside the sun to the surface, while other cells cool down and sink beneath them.
The solar wind flows from the sun, and the charged particles are ejected through the solar system. The halo of the sun, which is the outer shell of the star, is much hotter than the actual surface, with a temperature of one million degrees Kelvin, while the temperature of the sun’s envelope is about 6 thousand Kelvin.
Understanding the solar wind and the incendiary aura heat is essential, as both form a role in space weather and solar storms, and understanding the solar wind can provide an opportunity to better predict space weather.
The solar wind and halo temperature also affect coronal mass emissions, which may affect the global energy network and communications on Earth, as well as astronauts on the International Space Station.
Activated and accelerating particles that flow out of the sun’s rays in the solar wind are also responsible for the northern and southern lights that we see on Earth.
The observatory contains a 13-foot mirror, making it the largest solar observatory ever. It also features a cooling system that provides thermal protection for the telescope, as well as a dome to install the temperature. Its lenses also reduce the impact of the Earth’s atmosphere on visibility.
“These first images are just the beginning. Over the next six months, the Daniel Observatory team of scientists, engineers, and technicians will continue to test and operate the telescope to be ready for use,” said David Popoltz, director of the program at the Astronomical Division of the National Science Foundation who oversees the construction and operations of the facility. By the international scientific community for solar energy.
The Daniel Solar Observatory will collect more information about the sun during the first five years of its life, depending on all the solar data, collected since the scientist Galileo drew the first telescope to the sun in 1612.
The observatory, known as the Solar Advanced Observatory, was renamed in honor of the late Senator Daniel Inoue in December 2013.
