Quotes

...chromosphere is often twisting like a tornado twirling around a central magnetic tube," said De Pontieu, who is also the first author on this paper. "These twisting motions are often associated with heating to hundreds of thousands of degrees."
"These findings reveal a region of the sun more complicated than previously thought" said Jeff Newmark from NASA
...on SONG, and reer at the Niels Bohr Institute and the Centre for the Study of the Formation of Stars and Planets of the University of Copenhagen "this new telescope is equipped with a technology which can produce images almost as precise as those obtained from space, which will allow us to detect planets as small as the Earth and Mars orbiting other stars. This project and the Hertzsprung telescope which is to be inaugurated, have been financed by the Carlsberg Foundation, and the VILLUM FONDEN Foundation, the Danish Independent Re Council for the Natural Sciences (FNU), the European Re Council, the University of Copenhagen, the Aarhus University, and the Astrophysics Institute of the Canaries"
...more complicated than previously thought," said Jeff Newmark, interim director for the Heliophysics Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "Combining IRIS data with observations from other Heliophysics missions is enabling breakthroughs in our understanding of the sun and its interactions with the solar system."
