From the Ted Talk by Miho Janvier: Lessons from a solar storm chaser

Unscramble the Blue Letters

By cosalntnty monitoring the Sun, though, we now know where the solar storms come from. They come from regions of the Sun where a tremendous amount of energy is being soterd. You have an example here, as a celmopx structure hnngaig above the solar surface, just on the vrgee of erupting. Unfortunately, we cannot send probes in the scorching hot atmosphere of the Sun, where temperatures can rise up to around 10 million degrees kleivn. So what I do is I use computer simulations in order to analyze but also to predict the behavior of these storms when they're just born at the Sun.

Original Text

By constantly monitoring the Sun, though, we now know where the solar storms come from. They come from regions of the Sun where a tremendous amount of energy is being stored. You have an example here, as a complex structure hanging above the solar surface, just on the verge of erupting. Unfortunately, we cannot send probes in the scorching hot atmosphere of the Sun, where temperatures can rise up to around 10 million degrees Kelvin. So what I do is I use computer simulations in order to analyze but also to predict the behavior of these storms when they're just born at the Sun.
