Scientists trace high-energy particles to the sun’s plasma

Scientists may have discovered when and how the high-energy particles that bombard the Earth and other objects emerge from violent environments like sun atmosphere.

These high-energy particles pose a threat to sensitive satellite technology And astronauts, and can even affect aircraft flying over the North Pole. Although researchers have been studying these particles for decades, it has been difficult to establish a clear pattern of when seizures can appear, and thus predict when they will occur.
