Das Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope auf Hawaii macht Aufnahmen von der Sonnenoberfläche in bislang unerreichter Auflösung

The first images from NSF’s Inouye Solar Telescope show a close-up view of the Sun’s surface, which can provide important detail for scientists. The images show a pattern of turbulent “boiling” plasma that covers the entire Sun. The cell-like structures — each about the size of Texas — are the signature of violent motions that transport heat from the inside of the Sun to its surface. That hot solar plasma rises in the bright centers of “cells,” cools off and then sinks below the surface in dark lanes in a process known as convection.

Mit einem ausreichend kühlenden Raumauszug sieht das für mich nach einem ziemlich heißen Surf-Spot aus.
