Education about the Sun: Secrets of the Sun (NOVA PBS Video) April 2012

Please purchase this video, and support PBS: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/space/secrets-sun.html

The Sun contains 99.9% of all the matter in our solar system. It sheds hot plasma at nearly a million miles per hour. The temperature at its core is a staggering 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. It convulses, it blazes, it sings. You know it as the Sun.

Scientists know it as one of the most amazing physics laboratories in the universe. Now, with the help of new spacecraft and Earth-based telescopes, scientists are seeing the Sun as they never have before and even recreating what happens at its very center in labs here on Earth. Their work will help us understand aspects of the Sun that have puzzled scientists for decades. But more critically, it may help us predict and track solar storms that have the power to zap our power grid, shut down telecommunications, and ground global air travel for days, weeks, or even longer. Such storms have happened before--but never in the modern era of satellite communication. "Secrets of the Sun" by NOVA PBS reveals a bright new dawn in our understanding of our nearest star--one that might help keep our planet from going dark.
