NASA scientists crack 60- explosions on Sun

year-old mystery of

Scientists At NASA

have developed a theory that explains how explosions occur on the Sun

And Help Better Predict

geomagnetic storms and solar flares that can impact Earth.

An Explosive Process Called

 magnetic reconnection triggers solar flares, which can, in just minutes, release enough energy to power the whole world for 20,000 years.

Scientists Have Spent

the last half-century trying to understand how this process happens.

The Team At NASA's

Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS) has a new theory that explains how the most explosive type of magnetic reconnection - called fast reconnection - occur
