First direct observation of elusive waves reveals the energy channels in the solar atmosphere
Feb. 18, 2020 12:24 PM
For the first time torsional Alfvén waves have been directly observed in the solar corona by a team of researchers from the University of Oslo and the University of Warwick. The discovery sheds light on the origin of magnetic waves and their role in the heating of the Sun’s outer atmosphere, the corona.
60-year-old mystery of Sun’s magnetic waves is cracked by scientists
Dec. 11, 2019 2:11 PM
Solar physicists have uncovered how the Sun’s magnetic waves strengthen and grow as they emerge from its surface.
A "sunburst" from the early universe in 12 copies
Nov. 8, 2019 11:00 AM
Håkon Dahle (ITA/UiO) and his international team observed straight into the bright and hot heart of a galaxy 11 billion years old in no less than 12 multiple, gravitationally lensed images. The finding casts light onto a crucial era in our universe’s history: the epoch of reionization.
