Hawaii Inouye solar telescope has captured an unprecedented image of the sun surfaces. The new pictures reveal the sun’s surface, which is often hidden behind the spewing plasma of the sun. The images show the sun’s surface to be made up of granular structures (like a peanut chikki), each about the size of France. And between the granular are spaces that ooze out the heat from the Sun’s interior.
The observation will help the scientists understand the longstanding mysteries of the sun, including the physics of solar flares and coronal mass ejections could also significantly improve. Valentin Pillet, the director of the National Solar Observatory, described the telescope, which had been under construction since 2013, as a “formidable technological achievement”
