Researchers recreate the sun’s solar wind and plasma ‘burps’ on Earth

A new study by University of Wisconsin-Madison physicists mimicked solar winds in the lab, confirming how they develop and providing an Earth-bound model for the future study of solar physics. Our sun is essentially a big ball of hot plasma – an energetic state of matter made up of ionized gas. As the sun spins, … Read more Researchers recreate the sun’s solar wind and plasma ‘burps’ on Earth
