The Corona


Credit: SOHO

The Corona is the extended atmosphere of the Sun. It consist of hot, hot plasma. We still do not understand why the plasma is so hot. Normally, it should get cooler the more distant you are from the core of the Sun where the energy is produced. Not so on the Sun, suddenly it becomes in explicable super hot...

This is NOT the same...

Besides, this is best served cold...:-)

Corona - Baby, baby
