Solar Physics


Our Sun is an excellent laboratory for studying the everyday phenomena of a typical star. SSP scientists are experts in analyzing observations and developing theoretical models of the solar atmosphere, which produces the light we see and where powerful magnetic fields produce hot plasma and accelerate high energy particles that interact with the atmospheres of the Earth and other planets.
