Inouye Solar Telescope captures high-resolution images of Sun

-

With the help of the National Science Foundation‘s Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope, we finally have witnessed the sun on the ground level. You can see what the sun looks like closely with the help of these high-resolution photos. The pictures show the detailed transmission of Granules on the surface of the sun.

For those who don’t know, Granules is the name of the top of convection cells in the solar plasma and each Granule is the size of approx 1600kms. In simpler words, the size of Texas State in the U.S.A. is a mere 1,270kms! Apart from these cells present in the solar plasma, scientists are intrigued by one more thing that is the magnetic field present in the sun.

Mr. Thomas Rimmele who is the director of the Inouye solar telescope said, “To unravel the greatest mysteries of the Sun, we must not only be able to clearly see these tiny structures located 150 million kilometers away but also to measure very precisely the strength and direction of the magnetic field near the surface and to trace its extension in the crown, the outside atmosphere of the Sun, to a million degrees.”

The magnetic field on the sun is completely different from what we have encountered on the earth as it is dependant on the solar plasma. Scientists believe that by the study of these reactions with the help of the Solar Telescope they can predict the occurring of Solar storms on the Sun as they have the capability to tamper with the electrical networks of the earth.
