Harvard University Press,
Pub. Date:
Unlike the myriad points of light we gaze at in the night sky, our nearest star allows us to study the wonders of stellar workings at blindingly close range - from a mere 93 million miles away. And what do we see? In this book, two of the world's leading solar scientists unfold all that history and science - from the first cursory observations to the measurements obtained by the latest state-of-the-instruments on the ground and in space - have revealed about the Sun. Following the path of science from the very centre of this 380,000,000,000,000,000,000-megawatt furnace to its explosive surface. This text invites readers into an open-ended narrative of discovery about what we know about the Sun and how we have learned it.
