The Magnetic Flux Ropes really exist! • Shortlink
We know everything about Coronal mass eruptions, violent expulsion of protons, electrons and energy from the Sun Corona: they are all natural events which happen on the Sun surface, but scientist were not abled to capture the instant of their formation...until now!
This immage was taken in the ultraviolet frequencies and show the magnetic field lines of the solar corona, which form eddies and interwine creating the plasma. These particular magnetic field, called Magnetic Flux Ropes, are needed to solar flares formation.
